Lyrics I'VE CLIMBED
THE HIGHEST MOUNTAINS
IN SEARCH
OF HIGH ADVENTURE,
I ANSWERED
EVERY CHALLENGE AROUND.
IN MY HEART
I WAS SET
TO TAKE WING,
BUT MY FEET
ALWAYS STAYED
ON THE GROUND.
I'VE SCALED
THE HEIGHTS
OF FINANCE
FROM OPTION
TO DEBENTURE,
THEIR DISTANCE
FROM MY SOUL
WAS PROFOUND.
DEEP INSIDE
I WAS ALWAYS TRYING
TO SING,
BUT MY LIPS
NEVER MADE A SOUND.

EVERY DAY
I REACHED
FOR THE STARS,
BUT MY FEET
STAYED STUBBORNLY
EARTHBOUND.
NOW YOU SAIL
INTO MY LIFE,
AND THE INSTANT
YOU'RE THERE,
I'M LIGHTER-
THAN-AIR.
AND I FLY...

...OVER TREETOPS
AND TOWNS.
SAIL ME OFF
FROM THE WORLD
AND ITS CROWDS.
MAKE ME LAUGH
AS WE LOOK DOWN
ON CLOUDS.
WE'LL GO
HALFWAY TO HEAVEN,
AND THEN
IF YOU STAND
BY MY SIDE,
I'LL NEVER BE
EARTHBOUND AGAIN.
