Be yourself, no one will care if you fly off the top of the roof and make it to the unicorns.


when i was a young girl my papa took me in his hands and said, "If you keep that head up and if you stay strong you could be a star, star of the city."

when i was a young girl just a little bit older and maybe a bit stronger my mama took me by the hand and said, "You could be a bird and fly, fly away from all the pain you've had to face."

when i got a little bit older and my papa flew away i guess he couldn't handle all that pain i didn't know what to do and i didn't know what to say so my mama took me by the hands that day and said, " if you look up at the sky past those shining stars and if you listen to the wind you'll hear those messages for you."

when my sister came to stay i took her in my arms that day and said, "if you keep your head up and if you stay strong you'll be a star, star of the city.'

when my sister couldn't stay and my mama ran away i didn't know what to say, didn't know what to do so i looked up at the sky past those shining stars and i listened to the wind and i hear those messages, if you keep your head up and if you stay strong you'll be a star star of the city...we love you

this song is about my family pain. i wrote it when i felt most variable I've been working on it for about a year and I'm finally done:) also, it's pretty self expansionary.

"Writing cannot be critiqued by others, for it is expression of the self; an outsider can only reflect upon it".

Love this! A lot of times newage writers forget to add moral...but yours is very clear here

Life is so ironic to understand fully, it takes sadness to know what is happiness. noise to distinguish silent and a broken heart to find true love.

This is really good. I like the message!
