Where I Am From

im from
the top of the mountain
close to the sky
where the men don’t yell
and the kids don’t cry
where the clouds taste sweet
'cause why would they not?
up here in the mountains
it’s all we've got
the sky is full
of exploding stars
we jump up and reach them
and keep them in jars
but the lid stays off
so that they can breathe
and so they can come
and go as they please
but our celestial vessel
is always quite full
without the stars
the mount would go dull
im from the top of the mountain
far from the ground
we like it up here
we’ll never come down
but on shooting stars
i wish you could see
the world from the top of the mountain
with me
