"I Can't Touch The Sun" as written by and Shel Silverstein....
I can't touch the clouds for you, I never reached the sun for you.
I've never done the things that you need done for you.
I've stretched as high as I can reach. I guess I'm not the one for you.
'Cause I can't touch the clouds or reach the sun for you.
No, I can't touch the clouds or reach the sun.

I can't look inside your mind and see the things you're hopin' for.
I can't help you chase the dream you're gropin' for.
You say your arms are open wide,
But Lord knows who they're open for.
I can't know your mind or chase your dreams with you.
I can't chase your dreams or know your mind.

I hope you find somebody who can do the things I didn't do.
Find the road I didn't find, and build a better world for you.
I hope you find somebody bold enough to reach and take ahold
And guide your ever-changin' mind and free your ever-risin' soul.
But I can't...I can't .

I can't turn back time for you and make you sweet sixteen again.
I can't turn your barren fields to green again.
And I can't sit around and talk about what might have been again.
I can't turn back time and make you young again.
I can't turn back time and make you young.

So say goodbye and don't look back, I've had some happy days with you.
Sorry I can't be the one who stays with you.
And if they ask about me, you can say I was the one with you.
Who never touched the clouds or reached the sun with you.
I can't touch the clouds or reach the sun.
