"Taking Off" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Perry Bamonte and Jason Toop Cooper....
Tomorrow I can start again
With back to earth and carry on
The same as I did yesterday
Yeah I'll pick it up once more
And morning I'll be onto it
From square on start and push it for a bit
Like I do everyday
I'll get it down for sure

But tonight I climb with you
Tonight so high with you
Tonight I shine with you
Tonight I'm so alive with you

Tomorrow I'll begin anew
With heavy head to hold it
As I do it all like yesterday
Yeah I'll break it out again
And morning I'll be there in time
For clock back move and make it for awhile
To get through everyday I'll roll it out the same

But tonight I climb with you
Tonight-so high with you
Tonight-I shine with you
Tonight-I'm so alive with you

It's always here and never there
With you it's always here and never where
With you it's always here and never how
With you it's always here and always now

Tomorrow I will start again
With back to earth and carry on
The same as I did yesterday
I'll pick it up once more
And morning I'll be onto it
From square one start and "bit a for it push"
Like I do everyday I'll get it down for sure

But tonight I climb with you
Tonight- so high with you
Tonight- I shine with you

Tonight

    General CommentWhen he says "From square one start", that reminds me of Through the looking glass, from Lewis Carroll. And in the video they are in a kind of garden... Maybe it has nothing to do, but it would be quite funny actually, being the case that someone asked Robert to sign Alice in Wonderland at one of latest The Cure concerts ( a pity I didn´t bring the other book as well... This show us the importance of planning.
    On the other hand, planning might have resulted in something more normal used to get the autogarph...)
