  • I been on my own for a minute
    Is it only me out here?
    Searchin' for the place to begin it
    Is it me? Is it you? Is it fear?

    Standin' on the line I was given
    People stare and ask me why I'm here
    No one seems to think that I fit in
    But I don't wanna be like them

    No, 'cause I don't wanna be like them
    'Cause I know that I, know that I

    I had a dream that some day
    I would just fly, fly away
    And I always knew I couldn't stay
    So I had a dream that I'd just fly away, away

    Oh, oh
    Oh, oh, I'd fly away

    No one knew how low I was feeling
    I was scared to reach for it all
    Knowin' I was here for a reason
    But I was scared that if I tried, I'd fall

    So where do I go now that I'm in it?
    I never thought it'd be like this
    Dreamed it all my life, then I did it
    Thought the grass was greener than it is

    'Cause I had a dream that some day
    I would just fly, fly away
    And I always knew I couldn't stay
    So I had a dream that I'd just fly away, away

    Oh, oh
    Oh, oh, I'd fly away
    Oh, whoa
    Oh, oh, I'd fly away

    'Cause I had a dream that some day
    I would just fly, fly away
    And I always knew I couldn't stay
    So I had a dream that I'd just fly away, away

    Oh, oh
    Whoa
    Whoa, whoa
    Whoa, I'd fly away
