  • 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."
