Tell me whereWhere is it writtenWhat it is I'm meant to be?That I can't dare...
It all began the day I foundThat from my windowI could only seeA piece of skyI stepped outside and looked aroundI never dreamed it was so wideOr even half as high
The time had come(Papa, can you hear me?)To try my wings(Papa, are you near me?)And even though it seemedAt any moment I could fallI felt the most(Papa, can you see me?)Amazing things(Can you understand me?)The things you can't imagineIf you've never flown at all
Though it's saferTo stay on the groundSometimes where danger liesThere the sweetest of pleasures are foundNo matter where I goThere'll be mem'ries that tug at my sleeveBut there will also beMore to question yet more to believe
Oh tell me whereWhere is the someoneWho will turn to look at meAnd want to shareMy ev'ry sweet-imagined possibility?
The more I liveThe more I learnThe more I learnThe more I realizeThe less I knowEach step I take(Papa, I've a voice now!Each page I turn(Papa, I've a choice now!)Each mile I travel only meansThe more I have to goWhat's wrong with wanting more?If you can flyThen soar!With all there isWhy settle forJust a piece of sky?
Papa, I can hear youPapa, I can see youPapa, I can feel youPapa, watch me fly!
