Waking up each day
Preparing for the flight
So worried not to lose my grip
So tired of the fight

Holding on with such fear
So tight that I need to calm down
So I loosen my grip to see the sights
Just for a moment I look at the ground

Such splendor all around me
So much to see and do
I forget about my journey

Now my grip on higher sights is gone
Iv'e fallen very low
I look up to where I was before
but I'm too tired to give it a go

But how I yearn to be back to where I was before
Although I can't see ...it's not clear
I remember how I felt while there
My strength layered with fear

It's too hard to make the climb again
So much easier to stay down
I can see the sights up close now
I see the good in staying down

Yet the longer I stay here
very low to the ground
I have a constant nagging feeling
that I will surely drown

I can't choose to stay in one place
The laws of gravity push down
and if I don't actively climb
I will surely drown

So, how do I do this?
I'm tired and out of strength
Everytime I make the climb
I fall back to this place

Before I held on with all my strength
I grasped with all my might
But it seems that the tighter I held on
the more quickly I would lose my fight

What's the answer?
How can I stay high?
How do I keep from slipping
to the bottom and to my demise?

I want to keep climbing
I do...I really do!
But I don't know how to stay above
To keep the climbing new

I want to climb without the fear
I want to feel so free
I want to climb without the stress
without all the strife and worry

I want to enjoy the climb
See the sights, but without looking down
I want to climb towards the King
I want to reach the crown

So please tell me what to do
Help me with this struggle called life
I'm tired of the constant ups and downs
I'm tired of the strife.
