Clouds by Zach Sobiech


Like the rest of the world, Forest Grove has been touched by the story of 17 year old Zach Sobiech and his song, Clouds. 

Only given a year to live after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma - a rare form of bone cancer that is particularly aggressive and deadly, Zach made the decision that he had a lot of work to do before it was his time to go. Not long after the diagnosis Zach asked himself, "How do I say good-bye?" and it was with that question that the song, Clouds came to be. 

Now that there are only months left in Zachs year long battle, Clouds has begun to circulate among young Hollywood (who made a tribute video set to the song), local radio stations and too many covers/tributes to count. To be absolutely moved by the bravery and beauty of this song I suggest taking a listen to the PS22 Chorus rendition - which you can find HERE

 

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
