Reach for the stars
I Watch the evening news,
Murder and stock market blues.
Congressmen making broken promises,
Banks, homes in foreclosure,
And a second recession.
I waken everyday with a smile,
People always ask the question why?
It's a simple as apple pie,
I'm so high,
I reach for the stars in sky
I radiate happiness like wi-fi
I don't live every moment to deny
So happy, I just sigh,
So happy to to be able to say,
I'm free to struggle or succeed on this day.
My pockets have no bills,
I cant afford a new car or the house on the hill.
I listen to the song, I get by,
While I drive down the highway
And I reach for the stars in sky.
I'm so happy just to be alive
Riding the bubble, Just trying to survive.
Trying to just make a little good,
From a whole lot of depressing mood.
So reach for the stars in the sky
Reach with me for the stars in the sky.
Listen to the song, I get by
Don't ask the question why.
We can't fix the social lie.
Just Smile, my friend
how far can you extend?
Sing with me, I get by
Reach for the stars in the sky.
