I like the high life

but I've always been a low girl

I like the high rise

but I'm always on the floor, girl

don't even want to think 'bout

where I've been

just look ahead

and raise your chin

there's no point in holding back

be all that you lack

give it all your best

and never loose track

take it all

then give it back

don't be greedy

give some slack

just be kind

and keep happy on your head

you will see

you will see

it is all about perception

if you never let it in

you'll never be free

I like the high life

and I'm soaring in the clouds

I like the high rise

and I'm screaming in the crowds

can you hear the happiness

playing in my head

can you see it all around

it lifts my when I'm sad

it's all about perception

if you never let it in

you'll never be free
