How High

Young boy wakes up
And learns he can fly
Hops out of bed
And soars through the sky

He flies round and round
To all he’s never seen
It’s all so new
Almost like it’s a dream

If you could fly so high
Where would you go?
Would you travel the world?
Or soar like an eagle or
How high would you fly?

Maybe you wouldn’t try
Maybe you would just hide
Hide away form the gift you fear

Young boy flies so far
Flies so wide
That he meets a young girl
Who can also fly?

They fly together
As no other two can
Because only they know the joy
Of being free in the air

Through translucent fluffs of misty clouds
Cresting over white foam waves
Grazing crisp snow-peaked mountains
All around they flew

If you could fly so high
Where would you go?
Would you travel the world?
Or soar like an eagle
How high would you fly?

Or maybe you wouldn’t try
Maybe you would just hide
Hide away from the gift you fear

After lots of flying
The young boy and girl
Come across a school
A school of kids who also have gifts

Some kids can read minds
And others are fast
There are those who can disappear
Then ones that can heal

But among all these children
None are fliers
Only the young girl and young boy
Know how to fly

If you could fly so high
Where would you go?
Would you travel the world?
Or soar like an eagle
How high would you fly?

Or maybe you wouldn’t try
Maybe you would just hide
Hide away from the gift you fear

The young boy and girl
Developed a dream
A dream of teaching
They wanted to teach others how to fly

They said it was easy
That all you had to do
Was close your eyes and try. And dream
And then you would fly

What if it was that easy?
Close your eyes, dream, and try
Then you would fly
If it was that easy, would you try?
If you could fly so high
Where would you go?
Would you travel the world?
Or soar like an eagle
How high would you fly?

Or maybe you wouldn’t try
Maybe you would just hide
Hide away from the gift you fear

The young boy and girl
Never fulfilled their dream
However hard they pushed and tried
No one else could ever fly

The young boy and girl grew older
And continued to fly together
At an old age they died
Without living out their one dream

Maybe their students couldn’t fly
Because they couldn’t dream
They couldn’t let themselves be free
Can anyone be free?

What if all that was keeping us from flying
Was a fear of falling?
If we weren’t afraid
Could we fly?

Could we all be?
Like the young boy and girl
And set ourselves free to fly
Set ourselves free to dream

If you could fly so high
Where would you go?
Would you travel the world?
Or soar like an eagle
How high would you fly?

Or maybe you wouldn’t try
Maybe you would just hide
Hide away from a gift you fear
But if you could
How high would you fly?
