I remember when a photograph was worth
A thousand words
A thousand words
Now a thousand pictures come my way every day
And I like them all the same
But they can't take my breath away

I'm fighting the temptation not to look
But I'm still leafing through the pages
Like the world's my open book
Why don't I got something else to do
Feeling trapped behind the viewfinder
To share it all with you
And thats not what it's about
I'm so tired of missing out

I look on up
To the sky
I wonder why I put a filter
Between beauty and my eyes
I look on up
Into your eyes
It's time I put down my devices
And I start to live my life
I look on up
I look on up
To the sky

Have you ever tried to photograph the moon
Well I have too
I have too
I find it funny how it never turns out right
It's like someone poked a pinhole in the canvas of the night
And thats not what its about
I'm so tired of missing out

I look on up
To the sky
I wonder why I put a filter
Between beauty and my eyes
I look on up
Into your eyes
It's time I put down my devices
And I start to live my life
I look on up
I look on up

Cause it's a Nick Drake Pink Moon seeing the pines
In the Pacific North West for the first time
I cannot believe my eyes
Yeah, I'm singing out loud
In the middle of the night
On a balcony in Brisbane
Looking up into the sky
Into the sky
It's time I put down my devices
And I start to live my life

Oh, look on up
To the sky
I wonder why I put a filter
Between beauty and my eyes
I look on up
Into your eyes
It's time I put down my devices
And I start to live my life
Look on up
Look on up
To the sky

Have you ever tried to photograph the moon
Well I have too
I have too
