"High on Life"

when skies shine like topaz

and there's blossom on the trees

and a slight breeze

and you're watching some magpies take flight

when the world is so vibrant

and your heart is so light

and just for a moment

you're feeling all right

people might believe

you need alcohol

or drugs

or religion

or to fall

insanely in love

with somebody

but no other "high" can match


high on life

in those moments

sweet and brief

pure and innocent

no-one's mind games can

touch you

no-one has the power

to break or destroy you

you just want to bottle

the feeling

but you can't

and it's so sad

because it won't last

and you know

it won't last

it can't last
