"Thinking Up Looking Down" as written by and Ian Broudie....
In all your life to treasure there,
The precious times,
And times when it's hard to care.
There's moments when

They touch you with that magic touch,
And you shine...
You've shed that skin; it's lying there.
Where are you now?

I hope it's heaven there.
They touch you with that magic touch,
And you shine...
Hold on tight,

And dry those eyes,
And never cry,
'Cause in this world,
You're upside down,

When you first come round.
And in this world,
You're upside down,
When you first come round.

But even when Good seems Bad,
Keep trying to understand,
That maybe if God's on hand,
You might make it...

And Oh,
I miss those days.
All I can say,
Is I miss those days...

    General CommentThis song is from the album Sense which also has the song The Life of Riley, which is about the birth of Ian Broudie's son. To me, there are some references to new life in this song too...
    'There's moments when they touch you with that magic touch, and you shine...'
    This line makes me think that you may feel hopeless and down but all this dissolves away when your child is with you.

    Also 'And in this world, you're upside down, when you first come round..'

    I think this refers to birth as (unless the baby is in breech) we are born head first and upside down so to speak.

    The music in this song sort of reminds me of a lullaby too.
