One More Lesson For Life

Here is one of those stories that may change the way we look at life.

Zach Sobiech turned 18 on May 3rd, 2013. He was diagnosed with a type of bone cancer, osteosarcoma, in 2009. Since then, he has gone through several surgeries and chemo sessions; the cancer has spread to his pelvis and lungs and there seems to be no effective treatment for him right now. Zach turned to music (writing and performing songs) as a way to say goodbye to his friends and family. This is his story, told in a documentary called "My Last Days." You may not understand everything that is said but you will definitely get its message: it is certainly painful, but really positive. I warn you, it will be difficult not to burst into tears.



"Clouds" is one of Zach´s songs, really catchy, so read the lyrics below and sing along!


CLOUDS, Lyrics:

Well I fell down, down, down
Into this dark and lonely hole
There was no one there to care about me anymore
And I needed a way to climb and grab a hold of the edge
You were sitting there holding a rope

And we'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It won't be long now, it won't be long now

When I get back on land
Well I'll never get my chance
Be ready to live and it'll be ripped right out of my hands
Maybe someday we'll take a little ride
We'll go up, up, up and everything will be just fine

And we'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear

It won't be long now, it won't be long now
If only I had a little bit more time
If only I had a little bit more time with you

We could go up, up, up
And take that little ride
And sit there holding hands
And everything would be just right
And maybe someday I'll see you again
We'll float up in the clouds and we'll never see the end

And we'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It won't be long now, it won't be long now
