From the recording When I Reach Cloud Twelve


<p>Cloud Nine is now history</p>
<p>I&rsquo;ve made it up to Ten</p>
<p>Eleven glides right next to me</p>
<p>And wonders where I&rsquo;ve been</p>
<p>I say I&rsquo;ve been wasting time</p>
<p>A hundred miles below</p>
<p>And I believe this daring climb</p>
<p>Is more the way to go</p>
<p>Then I think of Emily</p>
<p>I miss her smiling face</p>
<p>I don&rsquo;t think she&rsquo;d follow me</p>
<p>To such a lonely place</p>
<p>Somehow she&rsquo;ll still see me though</p>
<p>Above her lazy town</p>
<p>And if she calls, next thing I know</p>
<p>I&rsquo;ll want to go back down</p>
<p>But that would be a long distance call</p>
<p>I think I&rsquo;d survive the fall</p>
<p>So when I reach Cloud Twelve</p>
<p>I&rsquo;ll ask if anyone has found</p>
<p>A way to come back down to Earth</p>
<p>And stay above the ground</p>
<p>This is such a gorgeous view</p>
<p>I&rsquo;m scared of going back</p>
<p>And all the other clouds I knew</p>
<p>Surrounded me in black</p>
<p>But I know Emily prefers</p>
<p>To stay out of the sky</p>
<p>And if I hear that voice of hers</p>
<p>I&rsquo;ll hate to say goodbye</p>
