Come on get up on my back you know we got a ways to go
The wind is picking up and I think its gonna snow
I’ll pull us up this mountain if takes me all day long
The only thing you gotta do is sing your pretty song
I’ll take you to the top where I’ll kiss you like a fool
You lift me up but it’s me who’s carrying you

It feels like it’s getting harder but the sky is turning blue
I keep on getting stronger every time I look at you
Maybe I will stumble but you know we’ll never fall
When you’re up on my shoulders I’m 22 feet tall

It doesn’t make a difference if my body breaks in two
You lift me up even though I’m carrying you

One day you’re gonna wake up and find that I am gone
There’ll be another shoulder there for you to cry upon
That trail will look familiar as you look upon that hill
Even though I cannot carry you, somebody will
He might look like an angel, and he might look like a fool
He’ll lift you up but it’s me who’s carrying you
Always me who’s carrying you
Yes it’s me who’s carrying you
