    Lyrics

    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
