  • She was the kind a girl that never quite fit in
    Holes in her shoes and freckles on her skin
    Every time she saw those school doors open wide
    She’d wanna turn around
    And run back home and hide
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh
    She got used to being stuck at the back of the line
    The kind that kept her head down most of the time
    Secret dreams ‘bout the boy in the high school band
    Then wake up thinking she’d never have a chance

    [Chorus]
    She’s a wildflower just waitin’ on a sunny day
    Just waitin’ on the wind of change to blow
    Just a red hot spark that’s lookin’ for a little flame
    Yeah, trying to find the perfect place to grow
    She’s a wildflower

    She makes a wish on every single star she sees
    Yeah, somewhere deep down she still believes
    Prays every night before she goes to bed
    Pretty soon her luck is gonna change
    She just doesn’t know it yet

    [Chorus]

    She’s a wildflower just waitin’ on a sunny day
    Waitin’ on the winds of change to blow
    Just a red hot spark that’s lookin’ for a little flame
    Yeah, tryin’ to find the perfect place
    Yeah, she’s tryin’ to find a place

    She’s a wildflower that’s waitin’ on a sunny day
    She’s the secret that nobody knows
    She’s a wildflower
    She’s a wildflower

    Na na na na na na na na na na na na na
    She’s a wildflower Writer/s: GORDIE SAMPSON, HILLARY LINDSEY, STEVE MC EWAN
