about

If I need to regain a sense of perspective, all I need to do is step outside and look up at the night sky.

lyrics

2. LOOK UP
©2016 Mary Elaine Mahon/Six Pelicans Publishing, BMI

The Milky Way is where we are
A garden planet, golden star
How did her life begin to be, can we unfurl that mystery?

This web of life the Earth has spun
So fine a work no man has done
Just a wink in geologic time, is life on earth an act divine?

(Pre Chorus) I wonder like a child at this, yet here we are, we exist

(Chorus) Look up, look up, let the Milky Way fill up your cup
Look up, look up, let a sense of wonder fill you up, look up

Billions of stars beyond the sun
Trillions of miles the nearest one
So maybe we are not alone in these spiral arms that hold our home

What will we come to understand?
Will we divine some master plan?
Will we come to know her worth and truly love our Mother Earth?

(Pre Chorus) I wonder like a child at this, yet here we are, we exist

(Chorus) Look up, look up, let the Milky Way fill up your cup
Look up, look up, let a sense of wonder fill you up, look up

(end) Look up, look up, let the Milky Way fill up your cup
Look up, look up, let a sense of wonder fill you up
