lyrics

I see the clouds up in the sky. I watch them race across the heavens
I close my eyes- I'm halfway there

Oh, the things you said to me. Oh, here comes the rain on my parade
Who wants a new tomorrow? I want my yesterday

Build me a castle on the clouds (up in the stratosphere)
And I'll live there with my, bottled dreams (just like my toothpick boat)
Call the king and send in all the clowns (I need a laugh now and again)
Life can never be quite, what it seems (Little Candle burn away now)

Trying different pairs of blue jeans. Trying to find a shade to match my mood
I stand there by the mirror, I'm not quite there. (or halfway to anywhere)

Oh, here comes that rain again. Oh, I still remember every word you said

Build me a castle on the clouds (up in the stratosphere)
And I'll live there with my, bottled dreams (just like my toothpick boat)
Call the king and send in all the clowns (I need a laugh now and again)
Life can never be quite, what it seems (Little Candle burn away now)

A little candle burns upon the table. A little cobweb hangs above my bed

Build me a castle on the clouds (up in the stratosphere)
And I'll live there with my, bottled dreams (just like my toothpick boat)
Call the king and send in all the clowns (I need a laugh now and again)
Life can never be quite, what it seems. Little Candle where's your flame now?

Build me a mansion in the sky
And I'll look from there down on my shattered dreams
Someone please call heaven and ask (why), If there's a God why won't he answer?
Life can never be quite what it seems. Little Candle burn away now

A little candle burns upon the table. Little cobwebs in my head.
I stare up at the sky and try to. Forget the dreams that we once had
