Can you see my soul rise?
High above the stratosphere
Smeared across blue skies
Where you gather clear

Cirrus or stratus or cumulus
White as a dove
Painting pictures from dust
Nimble you float above

A cotton candy fleet
Flocks of fluffy sheep
Many a heroic feat
Childhood dreams to keep

Watching clouds roll by
Up, up and away, I fly
