Such Great Heights
Ben Folds Lyrics


I am thinking it's a sign
That the freckles in our eyes
Are mirror images
And when we kiss they're perfectly aligned

And I have to speculate
That God Himself did make
Us into corresponding shapes
Like puzzle pieces from the clay
And true, it may seem like a stretch
But it's thoughts like this that catch
My troubled head when you're away
When I am missing you to death

When you are out there on the road
For several weeks of shows
And when you scan the radio
I hope this song will guide you home.

They will see us waving from such great heights
"Come down now" they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away
"Come down now" but we'll stay

I tried my best to leave
This all on your machine
But the persistent beat
It sounded thin upon listening.

And that frankly will not fly
You'll hear the shrillest highs
And lowest lows with the windows down
While this is guiding you home.

They will see us waving from such great heights
"Come down now" they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away
"Come down now" but we'll stay

They will see us waving from such great heights
"Come down now" they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away
"Come down now" but we'll stay

They will see us waving from such great heights
"Come down now" they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away
"Come down now" but we'll stay

Looks like I found the nostalgic side of Youtube again... and this cover is still incredible.

T Bone

LQ sound - pitty

what an awesome cover!! looks like it was a show not to be missed. That Postal service Give up album will still be in my mind a complete brilliant album. I saw them live in Atlanta when they were just in their beginning stages and not really anybody knew them yet.

I saw that tour in NC. It was a magical night.

1) "Guitorchestra" is one of the best portmaneaus I've ever heard 2) Holy crap with the playing the synthesizer and the piano at the same time

From 4:07 on, my mind was officially blown by Ben Folds amazing keyboard skills! My jaw literally dropped.

Peter Enriquez
