She says "I'm sick, and it's persistent, I haven't felt much like myself for days and days." And in a way I understand, cause I'm sick too - I'm sick of all these barricades. Everyday another dead end, another stop sign, another wall I can't break through. She counts down the days 'til she can hit the road and make all of her dreams come true, well I'm waiting on that too.

(Chorus)
Yea, one day the gate will open and the hope inside will flood the entire town. We'll sit on the roof and watch all the doubts go down.

When I look up at the night sky I've got a dream that corresponds with every star. That way they're always burning bright, and they're always in my sights and they are (reminding me that I am free) to pull back the skin and I'm telling you, you're free to do the same. Hearts like the ones we were given were never meant to be contained.

(Repeat Chorus)

Oh, Melanie, come and see the sky exploding! Oh what a glorious sight! I think I see the angels coming down, their song is ringing through the night, and we sing along.

We sing along: "HEAD HIGH, HEAVY HEARTED! HAVE YOU SEEN THE SKY TONIGHT? THE STARS ARE BURNING ONLY FOR US!"

(Repeat Chorus)

Head high, heavy hearted! Have you seen the sky tonight?
