I've never any time to play
It always seems to slip away
But it never really goes by
while I wait here with my level head for our only try.

Sing with your head up
With your eyes closed
Not because you love the song
Because you love to sing
Because you love to sing

You saw this frustration on my brow
You noticed I'm distracted now
I'm thinking only of my billfold
and how I want to face you with diamonds and gold in my head, in my hand

Chorus 4x

    Song MeaningI really think that this song has a deeper meaning than anything suggested so far. Even though Copeland doesn't classify themselves as a Christian band it is a well-known fact that certain members of the band are committed Christians. To me, I find it very difficult to believe that their faith wouldn't bleed into their lyrics to some degree.

    I think that the song is really an account of the relationship between man and God. The verses focus on how man is distracted from God by the things in this world. We are always trying to keep a level head and accumulate money in our billfolds and gold and diamonds when all God wants from us is for us to worship him. That's where the chorus comes in. "Sing with your head up, with your eyes closed..." These lines are God telling us that He desires our worship. "...Not because you love the song but because you love to sing." This takes the idea of worshiping God a step further and makes it not about singing a song but about loving God. He is asking us not to worship Him because we enjoy the act of worship and the emotional high it can give us, but instead because we really and truly love Him.
