lyrics

I've been sleeping in the attic the highest room in the house
Finally out of the basement away from all the fear and doubt
Living high every day or at least I'm trying
If there aint no stairs I'll climb the gutter to get to the top

People say they want to fly all the way to the moon and I say go for it
We only got one life here

I was talking to an old friend in the middle of a drought
Her tears dried up she broke those bad ties but still has some figuring out
She is on her way or at least she's trying
Life twists and turns and sometimes burns but that's what her here for

People say they want to fly all the way to the moon and I say go for it
We only got one life here

I've been playing out on High Street people walking all around
A man came by he asked if he could stay but he looked a little down and out
Living day by day or at least he's trying
Can't help but wonder how the world left him out in the cold

People say they want to fly all the way to the moon and I say go for it
We only got one life here

Oh one life

People say they've wasted all these minutes in their day
And they long so many years for the times like yesterday
But knowing this means nothing if you listen to your fears
Ignoring aspirations that you've had all of these years you'll go down
And you may never come back

But you'll come back
Oh I know it
Don't listen to your fears
It just takes time
Don't hear the disbelief
It's up to you to decide
Don't lose hope
Don't listen to what they say
Don't lose sight
No need to be afraid
Don't lose your life

People say they want to fly all the way to the moon and I say go for it
We only got one life here
