Charlie’s got high expectations
He’s gonna rise
Everyone knows that Charlie is ready
He’s ready to fly
Up on the rooftop he turns to the crowd
No one is waiting
No one is there
Nobody knows why Charlie threw it all away
Nobody knows what Charlie had to hide
Nobody knows why some of us get broken hearts
While some of us find a world that’s clear and bright
You could be packed up and ready
Knowing exactly where to go
How come you miss the connection?
No use in asking…the answer is nobody knows...
No use in asking…the answer is nobody knows
Charlie will keep his illusions
What else can he do?
And you can pretend that it would be different...
If it happened to you
But up on the rooftop, it’s a whole other world
And who could see heaven
And not want to stay?
