Clouds - Zach Sobiech



The Experience:

What do you do when you know you're about to die? If you're Zach Sobiech, you write a song. Zach died of osteosocarma on May 20, 2013. He left behind countless friends, family, and Clouds, the song he wrote about his battle with cancer...

My Take:
Life is a gift - one that too many people take for granted and very few people make the most of. When you suddenly find yourself faced with death, you can scramble to do something big with the time you have left... but you won't be able to change who you are, or how you've lived until now. Zach's song is beautiful because he thought life was beautiful, and lived that way. Like his best friend and bandmate Sammy Brown said, "He never once complained." His outlook on life was, "Life is just beautiful moments, one after another."

Ask Yourself:
What have you done with your life? Are you ready to die?


LYRICS:


Well I fell down, down, down
Into this dark and lonely hole
There was no one there to care about me anymore
And I needed a way to climb and grab a hold of the edge
You were sitting there holding a rope

And we'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It won't be long now, it won't be long now

When I get back on land
Well I'll never get my chance
Be ready to live and it'll be ripped right out of my hands
Maybe someday we'll take a little ride
We'll go up, up, up and everything will be just fine

And we'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher

We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear

It won't be long now, it won't be long now
If only I had a little bit more time
If only I had a little bit more time with you

We could go up, up, up
And take that little ride
And sit there holding hands
And everything would be just right
And maybe someday I'll see you again
We'll float up in the clouds and we'll never see the end

And we'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It won't be long now, ït won't be long now
