Skywards – Written Monday 11th July 1999 (Aged 24)

Skywards

i am looking skywards
and my dear, i have not found heaven
i am looking inwards
and my friend, i see twilight
come in, through the skylight
be warm, by the firelight
i am looking skywards
and i am taking in the clouds
i enter the streets and i mingle
but i am not taken in by the crowds
i am looking skywards
and my dear, it is looking good
if i have burnt my bridges
i am looking forwards
but the past, it is still adored
i am looking skywards
and my dear, it is mine and yours
