Sky High

Original Artist: Ben Folds Five

Shattered at dawn
So far for so long
Feeling newly baptized thinking
I donít want this thing to end and
All the blue sky

Where our stony paths meet
Coffee color sheets
Looking down at pale knees
With a cigarette and the morning beat
Under the blue sky
Last night at the bar
I was wrong, I was only hurting
And you were acting too polite
And we held on to the pain through the storms and the rain
Like a crumpled, empty, discarded Newports box

Ahh, under the blue sky
Ahh, sky high

Pawn shop billboard
"We Buy Gold"
Old dreams just fade and twist
Itís a heartache that never ended
The brightness of air
Out walking somewhere and when they ask you
Just tell them that you knew me back when
Under the blue sky

Ahh, sky high
Ahh, put on the blue sky
Ahh, sky high
