Walter BeckerUpside Looking Down

Well, you came on like some blazing supernova With a flame that burned so brightly in the sky Then you woke up and your long white night was over And you cursed the world that dared to pass you by So now you blame the ones who love you for your sorrows Dealing dirty while you steal the higher ground But you cheated and you lied and life took you for a ride Now you’re standing on the upside looking down And O, the hero in disguise Believing his own alibis You run so scared, you’re standing still I know you are, I know you will Be the first to call it quits and run for cover While your little world is crumbling all around But you punked out on yourself, you can’t blame nobody else And now that you’re standing on the upside looking down And O, the heartache of the thief Strung out on his own stash of grief A line for you, a flake for me But now it’s ancient history As the sky is turning black and glassing over As you drift so high above the lights of town All at once it seems so clear, you can see it all from here When you’re standing on the upside looking down
