Holding hopes and holding dreams
Restitching lives along the seems
Told to stars, to friends you make
Or told to candles on a cake

Written down on New Years Eve
Made for returns when loved ones leave
By the child who wants a toy
The girl for the most perfect boy

Millions falling at your feet
Someone lost you'd love to greet
A peaceful day without a war
And some for those who just want more

I float through windows and walk through doors
I fly sky high and crawl 'cross floors
You jump for joy with happy tears
When I come to end your fears

I solve all problems and ease all days
I help you through with gracious ways
I can break through walls and bring you home
From whatever place you roam

I'll save your life when you don't know
I'll take you where you need to go
I'll give you any thing that's true
If I only come to you
