high as the sun

Richard reached out the bottle to me / the liquor went down like a furious bee / it burned up my throat and swarmed in my chest / but I kept it afloat / it was only a test / high as the sun / high as the sun / and when I stood up / it all started to run / over the moon / over the moon / don’t wake me up / it’s all over too soon / flying away like it’s never been done / high as the sun / Richard reached in and showed me his heart / he talked about life / it was only the start / he talked of the night and the girls we’d kiss / if old Richard was right / it was nothing to miss / high as the sun / high as the sun / and when I stood up / it all started to run / over the moon / over the moon / don’t wake me up / it’s all over too soon / flying away like it’s never been done / high as the sun / and when I looked down / after twenty-five years / old Richard was gone / all he left was the beers / and a middle-aged man / with the face of a bum / high as the sun / high as the sun / high as the sun / high as the sun.
