Looking Up Falling Down:

I've been down so many roads
I've been down on my knees
I've been down beneath the sea
I've been down to Mexico

I've been up to no good
I've been way up above the clouds
I've been up to something no one knows
I've been up to Canada at least 5 times

We are looking up
while we're falling down

I've been into things whole heartedly
I've been into paint and poetry
I've been in between a rock and a hard place
I've been in the dark and in the light
I've been behind the scenes so many times
watching the people all exchange their lines
I've gotten over love that's over me
I've fallen into love

We are looking up
while we're falling down

Who knew
sorrows repeated
And to love yourself is not enough
to love your friends is not enough
to love what you have always hated
and despised
is where love grows tall
to love yourself is not enough
to feel your heart beats blood like blood like mine
to know that this will be enough
to fill the hole of being alone

I am looking up while falling down
now looking in
to find you looking out.
