Either way the future looked bright .

Whether dollar signs or you on my mind.

I just couldn't help but lose interest .

The thought of you had me far and distant.

Neglect your studies and you will fail.

Is what I was told , but I've still done well .

Because I'd found love

and that made me proud.

I've gained everything that I could ever need .

Because I had my head in the clouds.

The sound of the wind like a whistling train.

We took shelter from the storm

and the pouring rain.

Somewhere off the highway

a honey moon eluded the crowds.

But, nature was ignored

because of sweet young love

and my head in the clouds.

A first born cry echoed

down the hospital hall .

As I sat in the waiting room

hoping to be called.

Did that cry belong

to that son of mine ?

Is what I wondered

for what seemed all night.

Taking him home

he never made a sound.

Looking into the eyes of his mother.

I knew our fate was found.

Thanking god in the heavens above

for placing my head in the clouds.
