Zach Sobiech Is Dead... by jakaiso(m): 6:22pm On May 20, 2013
You might have watched his video on youtube or CNN-he's the teenage Cancer patient who took the world by storm with his single : "Clouds". A song he wrote as a way to say goodbye to his family and friends.
He died this morning surrounded by family and his girlfriend, according to a CaringBridge post by Zach's mother. He was 18

The catchy tune inspired countless tributes and covers, including a celebrity video -- a "Clouds" cover that People magazine says "could easily be the most moving celebrity shout-out of all time."

Dozens of stars are featured in the video, which airs on the SoulPancake YouTube channel of Rainn Wilson, known for his role in the television show "The Office." Among them: Bryan Cranston, Sara Bareilles, Colbie Caillat, Mark Duplass, Anna Faris, Jenna Fischer, Ed Helms, The Lumineers, Jack McBrayer, Jason Mraz, Phillip Phillips, Sarah Silverman and Ashley Tisdale.

Zach Sobiech died the way he lived -- with grace, strength, love and joy.

LYRICS TO THE SONG
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
