Ooh yeah, you know I never wanted to be closer
I'll still be here until it's over
No, no I never wanted to be closer
But you'll be back, I could have told you

Well, I always knew
Yes, I could see it coming
Your ambitious streak
It always want things beyond your reach

Well, now you've got what you wanted
And you're free to be the things
You always said you'd be
You're up there looking down
Tell me what do you see, oh

'Cause you know, you know I never wanted to be closer
And I'll still be here until it's over
No, no I never wanted to be closer
Yeah, but you'll be back, I could've told you

Well, it seems to me
That you've got to fight for yourself
In this world we live in
It's dog eat dog and never give in

Why worry when you're holding the aces
Don't throw it away 'cause you know
I'd rather be you than me
Up there looking down
Tell me what do you see, oh

Hey hey yeah

Ooh yeah, you know I never wanted to be closer
(Never wanted)
And I'll still be here 'til it's over
No, no I never wanted to be closer
(Never wanted)
Ooh, but you'll be back, I could've told you

It's been a long time coming
But at last we seem to be
Moving on, straight ahead
We're finally getting something done

Time flies and 'fore you know it
You'll be getting closer to her
You always knew you'd be
Up there looking down
Tell me what do you see, oh

'Cause you know, no, no I never wanted to be closer
(Never wanted)
I'll still be here until it's over
No, no I never wanted to be closer
(Never wanted)
Yeah, but you'll be back, I could've told you

Hey hey yeah
Hey hey yeah
