  • Sunset

    Twilight

    The little girl looked to the sky and wished that she could fly and touch the moon

    Wide eyes

    Wondering

    She stretched her arms up to the light and all she knew was this and mom's perfume

    The years go by, she's older now, and her eyes, grow colder now

    As she walks the path to finding her own truth

    She's grown confined to others ways, it defines the mess she's made

    As she wanders through a life that's lost its hue

    But she's got dreams and she's got plans, a thousand wishes in her hands,

    Yet lacks the courage to know just what to do

    And though she prays to God each day, asking why he took her Mom away

    She remembers back to flying to the moon

    If only flying was easy.

    New friends

    Late nights

    She paved her way and saved each dime, to be the daughter that her mother knew

    Thin lips

    Smiling

    Her shoulders back and head high, determined to begin her life anew

    She starts off slow, still weighted down, comes to know herself a bit better now

    As she lives a life of colors unsubdued

    She finds the joy in little things, finds a boy that makes her wanna sing

    As she maps a future long been overdue

    'Cause she's got dreams and she's got plans, a thousand wishes in her hands

    And looks for strength to know just what to do

    And though she prays to God each day, asking why he took her Mom away

    She remembers back to flying to the moon

    If only flying was easy.

    Well the days went by, the lights came on

    She studied hard and rocked them all

    She rose above her whispered doubts, to show the world what she's about

    And on crumpled nights of memory lane, crying out she heard her Momma say

    "You've got dreams and you've got plans, a thousand wishes in your hands

    And I believe in everything you do

    And when you pray to God each day, know I love you in every way

    And remember back to flying to the moon

    Because you make flying look easy."
