I may be young and kind of foolish,
But I wish people would look up for a change.

I look up and see all the sad faces,
so I keep smiling.
I see the sun cheer up the flowers,
so I try to do the same.

I look up and see the rain dancing in the trees,
so I feel careless and free.
I see the clouds make shapes in the sky,
so I try to find the pictures.

I look up at the ceiling,
so I can go on any adventure that I please.
I see something that scares me,
so I cry myself to sleep.

I look up and see the bills on the table,
so I choose one or two to color on.
I see the birds high in the sky,
so that’s when I start to fly.
