One Day

Well there’s a girl out there
Who sits at her desk
She's all alone

And she looks out at the empty street
There’s nothing to do
No where to run
In this small town
Population might as well be none

And she says
“I’ll get out of here, one day
I’ll find myself, one day
And everyone in the whole wide world
Will know my name
One day

And I’ll work hard
Do anything I have to do
I’ll give my blood sweat and tears
To make all my dreams come true”

The next day
All the other kids laugh at her dreams
Tell her she can’t be
What she wants to be
Not in this small town

And she says
“I’ll get out of here, one day
I’ll find myself, one day
And everyone one in the whole wide world
Will know my name
One day

And I’ll work hard
Do anything I have to do
I’ll give my blood sweat and tears
To make all my dreams come true”

Years roll by
And she’s standing on a stage
There’s a crowd just down below
Chanting her name
Screaming for just one more song

And tears fill her eyes
As she says
“I told myself I’d get out of there, one day
I’d find myself, one day
And everyone in the whole wide world
Would know my name
One day

And I worked hard
Did anything I had to do
I gave my blood sweat and tears
To make all my dreams come true

But now I know
I wouldn't be anything without
All of you!”

Meanwhile
In that same small town
A girl is watching the show
The singer cries
And rubs her eyes
As she thanks them all but as to go

And that girl said
“If she can do it
I can do it!

I’ll get out of here one day
I’ll find myself one day
And everyone in this whole wide world
Will know my name
One day

And I’ll work hard
Just like she did
Do anything I have to do
I’ll give my blood sweat and tears
To make all my dreams come true

I’m gonna make my dreams come true.”
