Its amazing the way the darkness falls
And the truth out there is cold
And nothing to keep you warm
Jealousy and lies within me
I got a feeling the sun wont shine today
And I gotta to know right now
Will I be rich, have everything I want
I stop myself and look to the sky

Oh I got to give myself up to the sky
The only truth is in the sky

Nobody else can tell cause Im stuck in a spell
Of greed and anger and hate
Oh I tried I tried I tried to rise above it
But it comes right back
Creeps up on me and it hits me
Double time

This cant be my fate
Its never too late
I wake up holding on to this pain
And theres nothing else I can do
But 2 give myself up to the sky

When u ask yourself
Hey why me and why not me?
When youre down on your knees
Look 2 the sky
Just look 2 the sky
You dont need no faster car
Or no bigger house
All u really need is friends and love
Hey come on home
Just throw up your hands
Throw up your heart
All u really need is love
Im comin home
So come on home

    I think this song is about self-reliance and simplicity.

    "Its amazing the way the darkness falls
    And the truth out there is cold
    And nothing to keep you warm "

    Life has its hardships and there's no one there to comfort you.

    "Jealousy and lies within me
    I got a feeling the sun wont shine today
    And I gotta to know right now
    Will I be rich, have everything I want
    I stop myself and look to the sky "

    It's just another bad day with these problems. Society is sending messages of ways to reach the ideal life style, but the only way that can be obtainied (according to Robin) is not through someone else's path, but through your own.

    "Nobody else can tell cause Im stuck in a spell
    Of greed and anger and hate
    Oh I tried I tried I tried to rise above it
    But it comes right back
    Creeps up on me and it hits me
    Double time "

    These messages keep comming back. It is hard to go through a battle on your own, but you have to.

    "When u ask yourself
    Hey why me and why not me? "

    Chance. There is no fate, just opportunities that you seize to make your own.


    At first glance, this song seems really religious with the whole "To The Sky" line, but "The Sky" is your own soul. Using your own judgement to go through everyday situations and not listening to the B.S. that surrounds us.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs ever made. The meaning is elusive, yet ably interpreted in many different ways. Robin Thicke is an Excellent songwriter.
