QuoteOh, and I think the song is inspired by Shelley's ode "To a Skylark," which is quoted in the sleeve of the Wish album. The poem and the song are both about marveling at the beauty and carefree joy of another. The connection between the song and poem is more thematic than lyrical, but there are hints. The word "sky" in the first line of the song evokes the title of the poem, and the title of the song evokes the second stanza of Shelley's poem: Higher still and higher From the earth thou springest, Like a cloud of fire; The blue deep thou wingest, And singing still dost soar, and soaring ever singest. Google the poem and read it slowly; you will see how the sentiment of the poem inspired the song
