lyrics

Building from the ground up, aiming for the sky,
taking my time thou' cos I don't want to fall by the wayside
| C | % | % | % | F | % | G | % |
and you might be laughing at the state of my shoes
but there's no way today I'm catching your blues

| F C F C | F C F C | G | % |
cos i have been round and round and round and round again
| F C F C | F C F C | G | % |
i have walked some paths that came to a dead end
| F C F C | F C F C | G | % | % | % |
and i have been frowned upon for things that i have said, for somethings that i have said

excuse me mr fancy tie, greed is good and cash lives fast,
would you care to join me? you sure look like you could do with a laugh!
i see those lines wearing deep into your face -
open your eyes look around and see the love and wonder in this place

you tell me what goes up must come down, i said they put a man on the moon
you say it's a grey rainy day, i sing don't worry the sun will be here soon
you tell me that the glass is half full and i might disagree but am i wasting my words?
there are other ways I could spend my energy

chorus

excuse me mr fancy tie, please don't buy and sell the sky
think of your childrens children as you scratching around for an alibi
now you might be laughing at the state of shoes
but there's no way today I'm catching your blues

chorus

Building from the ground up, aiming for the sky, building from the ground up, aiming for the sky
aiming for the sky, aiming for the sky, aiming for the sky
