You've been on my mind
Guess it's about time
To see things just as they were
To see things just as they were

Left so much behind
The sky opened up and I climbed
To see things just as they are
To see things just as they are

And on my way back to the ground
I was appalled by what I had found

If you dare to be
True to what you believe
There's always somebody to lose
There's always somebody to lose

Even if you try
To pull all your feelings aside
There's always someone who will see
There's always someone who will see

And on my way back to the ground
I was surprised by what I had found

No one will ever be you for yourself
Even if the world is ready to help

If you give it some time
Out of the stranger you may find
Someone that hears what you mean
Someone that hears what you mean

These thoughts are easy to think
Easy to say
But when you're walking alone
Will you be okay?

Left so much behind
The sky opened up and I climbed
To see things just as they are
To see things just as they are

And on my way back to the ground
I was appalled by what I had found
No one will ever be you for yourself
No one will ever be you for yourself

    General CommentIt sounds like this is sung from the perspective of someone who is "up in the sky" and has to "drop to the ground" to re-enter reality.

    My personal interpretation is that this person was pursuing someone and now the possibility of being in a relationship has just become real. So you leave that honeymoon phase and have to address the issues that come with a relationship. You realize you can't keep everyone happy: the person you're dating, your family, your friends... so you just have to live for you, because everyone else has an agenda. It's only you that lives for yourself.
