Reach For the Sky

 Reach for the sky
 it goes all the way up
 from way down there
 to the brim of your cup

 Reach for the sky
 see where it goes
 just don't sit still
 move your feet and toes

 Reach for the sky
 hold on and sit tight
 you're on a rollercoaster
 you'll be there before night

 Stretch out feel the fear
 don't ask or question why
 just do it before you die
 reach for the sky
