On an Up Lyrics

by Soft Cell

You in the clouds over there
Hanging on with a wing and a prayer
Forget your regrets and forgiving
Life is not for lasting but living

Don't be one of those lonely people
Waiting for a bus that never comes
Out run your limitations
Even little dreams are aspirations

I don't want to leave you
With a cloud over your head
Take some time to reassess
And think of what I've said

On an up, on an up
I'm gonna leave you on an up
On an up, on an up
I'm gonna leave you on an up

I'm gonna try and leave you on an up
Not to cry and leave you on an up

I don't blame you if you believe
There's no beauty in the world
But if you take some time to look
You'll find it there for sure

Too much cynicism
Ridicule and vile derision
But if you're guilty then I am too
For seeing life through shades of blue

Don't want to leave your head
Full of dirty streets and falling rain
I want to leave you with a little sun
So here it comes again

On an up, on an up
I'm gonna leave you on an up
On an up, on an up
I'm gonna leave you on an up

I'm gonna try and leave you on an up
Not to cry and leave you on an up

You in the clouds over there
Hanging on with a wing and a prayer
We're all part of the same plan
Trying to get through life, the best we can

On an up, on an up
I'm gonna leave you on an up
On an up, on an up
I'm gonna leave you on an up

Want to try and leave you on an up
Not to cry and leave you on an up, on an up
