I have seen the world through bloodshot eyes
and fallen down so many times;
kept my distance far from all who cared-
being hurt again, my biggest fear.
I have played among the flowers
and danced along the clouds...
So "high" and falling farther,
...farther from myself.
The ground's a smiling friend,
when clearly you can't see;
I almost hit rock-bottom...
But a stranger was waiting to catch me.
He made me smile again
and he opened up my eyes;
Asking nothing in return,
he taught me how to fly.
I just want to tell you, "thank you,"
and I'll always be here for you;
Say my name and I'll come running,
that's all you'd have to do.
I'll take away a sky that's grey
and paint it all with blue;
I'll be your rainbow after rain...
I'd do anything for you.
So, if you ever feel like you will fall
I'll be here to catch you in my arms;
If you're ever in any danger-
I want to shelter you from harm.
If tears should ever fall
down your beautiful milky face
I want to be the one to catch them
and put them in their place.
I'd do anything to see you smile,
I'd give it endless tries;
I was born without wings but because of you
I know now how to fly.
