Treasure Island

The Sky

It’s amazing the way darkness falls
And the truth out there is cold
That there’s nothing to keep you warm
Jealously and lies within me
I have a feeling, the sun won't shine today
I must know right now
Will I be rich, have everything I want?
I stop myself and look to the sky

I have to give myself up to the sky
The only truth is in the sky

Nobody else can tell because I’m stuck in a spell
Of greed, anger, and hate
I tried, I tried, and I tried to rise above it
But it comes right back
Creeps up on me and hits me, double time

This can’t be my fate,
It’s never too late
I wake up holding on to this pain
And there’s nothing else I can do
But to give myself up to the sky

When you ask yourself “Hey, why me? ” and “Why not me? ”
When you’re down on your knees
Look to the sky, just look to the sky
Don’t need a faster car
Or a bigger house
All you really need is friends and love
Throw up your heart
All you really need is love

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
