Up, up, up we go,
Together, we two, no more.
The clouds our only company
On our quest to unlock the door.

The sparkling key to eternity
Is the only one that fits.
The light becoming clearer
In bigger and brighter bits.

Up, up, up we go,
Together, we two will soar
And search for the hidden treasure
Found only on Eternity's Shore.

In our little rocket ship,
We continue to climb
Closer to the heavens
And farther away from time.

Up, up, up we go,
Together, we two escape
Into the bliss that is the open air,
Our mistakes below-our cape.

The silence of our ever-spinning world
Is such a mystery.
Our struggles left so far behind;
The two of us now finally free.

Up, up, up we go,
Together, we two will stay
Side by side for eternity
Until a brighter day.
