Looking Up (Elton John)

Figuring out where I went wrong The script not followed, then was awfully long Too much pluck, too little of The acting right, not acting up I wore the world upon my back Though someone else could meet, pick up the slack Just because I could say It's my life, do things my way Now I'm looking up more than I look down The view's a whole lot better second time around Too much of me was hidden in the shadows I looked up and felt my feet lift off the ground Color a lot with a broader stroke The laughter comes as easy as the jokes Nowadays, I'm thinking 'bout Time is wasted looking back Now I'm looking up more than I look down The view's a whole lot better second time around Too much of me was hidden in the shadows I looked up and felt my feet lift off the ground You drop a bucket in a well It's dark and deep down there Crank the handle, bring it up The water, crystal clear I'm looking up more than I look down The view's a whole lot better second time around Too much of me was hidden in the shadows I looked up and felt my feet lift off the ground I'm looking up more than I look down The view's a whole lot better second time around Too much of me was hidden in the shadows I looked up and felt my feet lift off the ground Looking up, looking up Looking up, looking up
