Dear Sir Lonely though you are Don't be too discouraged I have saved a place next to my heart For you With my blue dress on My best foot forward And bells on too I'm waiting waiting Waiting for you People try to tell me I should Find where I belong But they are wrong So wrong Could I go Go Could I ever leave Leave The answer's no No Because I'm waiting waiting Waiting for you Dear Sir Just look at the stars There's a million you can see And several million more you can't But you Just keep gazing Be amazed All of that glitter glue Is waiting waiting Waiting for you People try to tell me I should Try adventure on But they are wrong So wrong And could I go Go Could I ever leave Leave The answer's no No Because I'm waiting waiting Waiting for you Maybe we will meet upon the hilltop Weather fair And you'll smile behind the grass And put a flower in my hair Thinking of the future Always helps me to believe That you are waiting waiting Waiting for me Could I go Go Could I ever leave Leave The answer's no No Because I'm waiting waiting Waiting for you

Please believe That I will do my best wherever I go But all I see now is A hundred thousand things I don't know Count up to ten Close your eyes Then open I'm coming now ready or not Whatever it takes Wherever it leads I'm not gonna break Believe me Whoever I am Whoever I'll be She won't back down Believe me Please believe That I will never let the fire surround me And when I'm down I will keep the hope and strength around me Count up to ten Close your eyes Then open Ready or not here I come Whatever it takes Wherever it leads I'm not gonna break Believe me Whoever I am Whoever I'll be She won't back down Believe me No matter what gets in the way I'll fight for what I believe And that is never gonna change It's never gonna fade my hope away Whatever it takes Wherever it leads I'm not gonna break Believe me Whoever I am Whoever I'll be She won't back down Believe me

It's time to say goodbye And you're scared I see it in your eyes Adventures are fun You're worrying about nothing Your guitar's in the car Umbrella by your side Thought you were on your way When I heard you say What do you think is wrong with me I've never been brave like you And if I get lonely What will I do As far as I know As far as the stars This earthquake's gonna shake your heart You're scared of what might happen then I told you once but I'll tell you again You don't need to worry 'bout that I know that you're trying To help me find my feet I know you're watching over me Maybe I'll be brave And show you that I can Maybe I should stay The weather's looking grey What do you think is wrong with me I've always got a better excuse But once I have gone What will you do (Oh I've danced with a million doubts) As far as I know As far as the stars This earthquake's gonna shake your heart (Couldn't hear the words you said) Your scared of what might happen then (You told me once just tell me again) I told you once but I'll tell you again (I don't need to worry 'bout that) You don't need to worry 'bout that Look at that shine You and the stars (I know that you're trying) This little girl can't tell you apart (To help me find my feet) Did you think you'd lost your friend (I know you're watching over me) She told you once now she'll tell you again (I don't need to worry 'bout that) You don't need to worry 'bout that Show you that I can Wherever you are I'll never be as far as the stars

Are you with me I'm setting my sail Something has stirred up the waves inside of me Short of a crew Can I count on you Like a fair wind behind me Behind me We are the bravest of brave Our solid ground gaze Will be gone By tomorrow Certainty has it's place But it's change that we chase And the stars We will follow So anchors up up and away We will be the last To go down in the dark We are young But we know What to hold in our hearts Seven seas don't seem like many to me I will sail them all Won't you sail with me Are you listening Ear in a shell Powerful spell Can you hear distant drumming Boys growing strong Men before long And they won't see us coming But we're coming We are the changers of thoughts Revolving the doors This dry land Will not hold you When the sea states his case With his beckoning waves Listen up He has called you So anchors up up and away We will be the last To go down in the dark We are young But we know What to hold in our hearts Seven seas don't seem like many to me I will sail them all Won't you sail with me We will be the last To go down in the dark We are young But we know What to hold in our hearts Seven seas don't seem like many to me I can count them on my fingers easily And I will sail them all Won't you sail with me Are you with me

I go outside for light If you were to open your hatch You'd be lost from sight I sleep quite sound at night Gravity you left back home Straps hold you tight I've been up in a plane Shot to fame And when I touched the ground I cried until it rained I'm not as brave As I thought Astronaut But you What do you do for fun Do you still comb your hair Or don't little things like that Matter way up there How will you face the crowd How will you share The common air on earth again It's hard enough to breathe in space I keep my windows clean I'll bet space dust Behaves unexpectedly Is it the best view you've ever seen Or does time spent away Change everything I've been up in a plane Shot to fame And when I touched the ground I cried until it rained I'm not as brave As I thought Astronaut But you What do you do for fun Do you still comb your hair Or don't little things like that Matter way up there How will you face the crowd How will you share The common air on earth again It's hard enough to breathe in space I'm not as brave as you are But then I haven't been that far Not even halfway to the stars And you live right there where they are So maybe Fear can't follow to that height And maybe It would be music to my eyes Show me the mountains of the universe And I would learn to breathe in space But you What do you do for fun Do you still comb your hair Or don't little things like that Matter way up there How will you face the crowd How will you share The common air on earth again It's hard enough to breathe in space It's hard enough to breathe in space

When I was three feet tall I played in the sand Back then the whole wide world Fit into my hands It was smaller back then The world was wild and wide it spread Horizons gold horizons red It fell out of my hands The world began And it grew Into The bluest of blues Like the oceans I knew And it lived I did too In the blue And it grew Under six feet tall I don't grow any more The same old footprints Still turn up on the shore And they will always remain Like the scattered seed it spread Horizons gold horizons red When it fell out of my hands The world began And it grew Into The bluest of blues Like the oceans I knew And it lived I did too In the blue And it grew Into The bluest of blues Like the oceans I knew And it lived Became strong Returning the light that was Lost for so long And it grew (The world was wild and wide it spread) I did too (Horizons gold horizons red) In the blue (It fell out of my hands) (The world began) And we grew

People come and people go Such is life ephemeral We put on our finest show But we're only here for a moment In the corners of our minds Storing up our borrowed time Tryna move that finish line But we're only here for a moment This is the part where we part But it won't be for forever It's just the start just the start We'll begin again together No it won't be for forever Still it's such sweet sorrow Massive ocean little boat Now you see us now you don't Just magicians heading home We were only here for a moment Like a cold man to a fire Fanning embers through the sky Tryna catch the fading light 'Cause we're only here for a moment This is the part where we part But it won't be for forever It's just the start just the start We'll begin again together No it won't be for forever Still it's such sweet sorrow (It's just the start just the start) Still it's such sweet sorrow (We'll begin again together) (No it won't be for forever) People come and people go Such is life ephemeral We put on our finest show But we're only here for a moment And it's such sweet sorrow

Get up from your bed Time to go sleepyhead They say that it's the best thing since sliced bread And I don't wanna miss it There's magic to be found Such things often come around But it will be the first to hit this town And I don't wanna miss it I don't wanna miss this show Smiling faces I don't wanna miss it I don't wanna miss this no Take your places Get up let's go You're not gonna wanna miss this show Such a sight to see Coloured posters line the streets Children under ten can dream for free And I don't wanna miss it Throw the past away Grab your camera keep today Tell them not to start we're on our way And I don't wanna miss it I don't wanna miss this show Smiling faces I don't wanna miss it I don't wanna miss this no Take your places I don't wanna miss it I don't wanna miss this show Smiling faces I don't wanna miss it I don't wanna miss this no Take your places Get up let's go You're not gonna wanna miss this show Smiling faces I don't wanna miss it I don't wanna miss this no (I don't wanna miss this no) Take your places I dont wanna miss it I don't wanna miss this show Smiling faces I don't wanna miss it I don't wanna miss this no (I don't wanna miss this no) Take your places Get up let's go You're not gonna wanna miss this show

Shadow lies Over ten wings wide But it cannot hide me Forest fades But I'm not afraid So I whisper lightly You're that shy kind of beautiful And that's my kind of wonderful I think I understand you now Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground But they never make a sound They just go down But they never make a sound Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground Tall as trees With their fallen leaves You are stronger than them Heart of gold That you never show Like you're hiding something You're that shy kind of beautiful And that's my kind of wonderful I think I understand you now Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground But they never make a sound They just go down But they never make a sound Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground I think I understand you now Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground I think I understand you now Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground But they never make a sound They just go down But they never make a sound Gentle giants fall so hard to the ground
