Don't Look Down

Don't Look Down

It's like I'm climbing up this tower.
Uh-huh.
It's like i'm climbing up, and now all of a sudden I'm getting higher and higher.  I'm looking down, and I'm realizing that if I fall...I could get hurt.
You could?
Yeah, I think I could.
You're high enough to get hurt?
Yeah, I think I am.
Afraid there could be a big fall, huh?
Yeah.
Well, you just gotta reach up to the next rung on the ladder.  You can reach up, ya see, and you can give it a tug or two.  Check if it's stable.  That way, you know you can climb a little higher.
I could. 
Instead, you keep looking down thinking about falling...and that's what gets you stuck.
It's because I've fallen before.
Different tower.  Different ladder.
Well, if there's this tower I'm climbing up and I'm already getting high enough to have a hurtful fall...Where the hell are you on this damn hypothetical tower?
I'm at the very fucking top!  I'm up here, pulling the ladder up when I can, trying to help you up.
You're already at the top?
I'm at the top.
How's the view.
Oh it's gorgeous.
I want to see.
Climb up and look out with me.
But...I'm scared.
Just reach up, give the next rung a tug. Climb up one at a time.  I'll be up here waiting.
