I'm up before the rising sun; I can't be heard or seen
I don my hand-me-downs and blend in with the scenery
Candid in her calico, I'm camouflaged in courtesy
But even though I turn my shoulder
Turn my head to notice if she'll notice me
I'm up a creek; I'm up a tree, my ladder's on the ground
I ran to fetch her water, dove in deep and thought I'd drowned
Stalwart in her Jericho, I'm banished at her balcony
I swear someday I'm gonna bring that tower down
I would be your Jack - would you be my Jill?
I've been holding back, afraid to take a spill
I raised the stakes; I'll roll the dice
I made my wish; I'll pay the price
I'll bring you back; I'll be your Jack
I'll be your Jack, so be my Jill
I'm up above the scattered clouds; I'm in a state of gray
I try to call her name but echoes answer far away
Paralyzed in vertigo, I'm paranoid of atrophy
I fear someday I'm gonna break my starry crown
And if push should come to shove, could I win her love?
If I was king of every hill, would I still lose my will?
I want to find that castle in the sky
I want to climb the vines and make it mine
And if I can't make it, it won't mean I didn't try
Stranded in her Jericho, I'll barricade her balcony
I swear someday I'm gonna sing that daughter down
