I need a bedThat nobody’s slept inI need some airNobody’s been breathingI need a thoughtThat I can believe inIs this fogOr is the building really burningI need youMuch more than everI’m making new friendsBut none of them matterMaybe nowWe don’t fit togetherBut you’ve got your arms aroundNo one but strangersI feel fineWith the sun in my eyesThe wind in my hairWhen I’m falling out of this skyI’m doing better than I thought I wouldBut nothing’s ever as goodAs when you’re on topI want to wake upAnd just start runningInto a ditchOr straight up a mountainI want to getWhere no one been gettin’Make it deeper than hellOr make it higher than heavenI need someone whose price hasn’t been metWhen everybody’s disappearingBy the minuteThere isn’t anyone leftI haven’t meet yetWell I rememberWhen they hadn’t gotten to you yet[chorus]Half way upAnd over this rainbowI heard a shotFire up from a ghettoAs I dropI didn’t think you’d followJust didn’t knowThe sky was this shallowI need a gardenWhere nothing’s forbiddenI need an appleThat no one’s been eatin’I want to start againBack at the beginnin’I had a visionThat this feeling maybe has an ending
