I'm not used to coming through
more accustomed to a falling out
I'm trying hard now as I can for you
not to trip up on some stupid doubt

You got your hopes set way up high
way on up there way the air is thin
the limit's supposed to be the sky
I'm trying not to let you down again
It's starting to come to me
i didn't know about, I hadn't figured it out
but its starting to come to me now
a little bit too late....

I can't see anything you done, any reason for the trouble you got
you haven't hurt anyone
compared to most that's sayin' quite a lot
I can't help you when you're sad, that's a constant source of pain to me
because I want to really bad
even though you make it seem like nothing

its starting to come to me
I didn't know about
I hadn't figure it out
but its starting to come to me now
a little bit too late

    He actually says
    "Way on up there where the air is thin"
    I think he does anyway.

    General Commentthis song is so beautifully melancholy.

    "I can't help you when you're sad
    That's a constant source of pain to me
    Because I want to really bad
    Even though you make it seem like nothing"

    so painfully true. brilliant.
