We sold our sons and we sold our daughters
Pretty soon we'll sell our brothers
We took the gold but the gold was water
I tried to save the world but I failed her

She cries the tears that I never left her
I left 'em all behind
You were sitting in your darkest hour
Oh, summer's gone

We tried to make the world so much better
We send our words in a pretty perfumed letter
You sit alone in your ivory towers
I'm just one person, I don't matter

You tap the needle
And you went to heaven
You left it all behind
Now you're feeling, oh so better

Oh, too high to fly
You should've seen me there, yeah, yeah, yeah
Too high to fly, my baby
But you were almost there, yeah, yeah

The sun shines down on my face
But you don't feel a thing, no, no, no
The lines on the street and the smoke rises
You looked too long for heaven, now you're blinded

Another morning sun
Another day gone by, oh
The storm's coming with the pouring rain

Oh, too high to fly
You should've seen me there, yeah, yeah, yeah
Too high to fly, oh baby
But you were almost there

Too high to fly
You should've seen me there
Too high to fly, oh baby
You were almost there

The lines on the street and the smoke rises
Wanderin' 'round for forty days, I hope you find it
You couldn't get any higher
But you were higher than me

You couldn't get any higher, no, no, no
Too high to fly
You should've seen me there, oh baby
Too high to fly

You were almost there
Too high to fly
You should've seen me there
You should've seen me there

Tap the needle
It won't take you there
It's not salvation on it's way
