‘Clouds’ by Zach Sobiech

This from Youtube:

Zach Sobiech, of Lakeland, Minnesota, doesn’t go far without his guitar in tow. Facing months to live, 17-year-old Zach is turning to music – writing and performing songs as a way to say goodbye to his friends and family.

Zach was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2009. Since his diagnosis, Zach has endured several surgeries and months of chemo. In May, 2012, the cancer spread to his pelvis and lungs. There are no known effective treatments left. As Zach fights to live, he remains the same joyful soul he has always been. He still smiles as brightly as he did before cancer – it just means more now.

To read Zach’s story or to donate to the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund, visit ChildrensCancer.org/Zach. Read more about Zach on his personal blog: CaringBridge.org/visit/ZacharySobiech

CLOUDS LYRICS

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

Zach is hoping his video will go ‘viral’ and receive 1,000,000 views before his time comes. Let’s get behing this, and in the spirit of Christmas help Zach reach one million views. Please share, post to Facebook, etc. Thanks, Stu

    Such joy in the face of such adversity. The picture that comes up on the video feed reminds me of someone we both know, only younger. A work buddy of mine has been going thru something similar (her son is much younger than Zach and his treatment worked). Thank you for sharing this.

      I noticed the similarity in that photo myself. Zach’s picked up 10,000 views since this was posted 7 hours ago, but I’m not the only one promoting this. It was a topic of discussion on George Noory/Coast to Coast AM last night which is where I heard about him, and I guess there’s a Facebook page out there dedicated to getting Zach a million views too. I believe if enough people share on Facebook the video will go viral, and then the numbers will really start rolling in.

  2. […] never pleasant reading about kids with terminal illnesses, but this young man is something else! Determined to do something with the time he has left, Zach Sobiech is using music to get through […]

    171,257 views this morning. Seems the growth rate in views has slowed.

  6. […] in December I posted a video called, “Clouds” performed by Zach Sobiech, along with some biographical information that apeared on youtube. Sadly Zach passed away earlier […]

      That’s really depressing. The first verse of his tune was almost too much. RIP, Zach, you were too young and too good to stay.
