You Can Fly
Another lyric I found in my recently rediscovered song-babies folder... Tweaked the lyric a little and created music for it. It's sort of a collab with my younger self. LOL This goes out to all the students who have struggled with family, personal, emotional, or health issues.
You Can Fly

I can see you sitting in the classroom,
Bright pink hair and dark brown eyes
I hear you singing in the shower,
Crying at the movies, sleeping on the couch
And you think your life is tough
And you think that you’re not smart
In the mirror, there’s a sad face staring back
You have no idea who you really are.
Don’t you know that you can fly, girl?
Take one deep breath and try, girl,
Inside an eagle wants to spread its wings
In you live amazing possibilities
If you can believe, and aim for the sky
You’ll find that you can fly!
I loved you before you were born.
I watched as you took those first few steps.
I was there the night your world crashed down.
I sent angels to hold you in their arms.
What you did in the dark nearly broke my heart
Damaged, torn, I saw you bleed
But you’ll always be beautiful to me.
You were never meant to fit in!
You were made to be amazing!
You can fly!
