You believe the doors are locked

And the walls are closing in

You believe your world is rocked

Can't remember where you've been

A light streaks through the darkness

It's been there all this time

It's calling you to grab its tail

To show you not to fear the fail

And you reach up toward the sky

With no doubt or wonder why

And the spark that's in your eye

Is what says that you can fly

You dream there's more than this

As you wait for evidence

You worry what you'll miss

You dream for one more chance

That light still pierces through the night

Reminds you that it's there

It shakes you out of restless sleep

To escape what you don't have to keep

And you reach up toward the sky

With no doubt or wonder why

And that spark's still in your eye

Now it's time for you to fly

The room is dim

The music's loud

It all seems to disappear

A connection forms from sharing tales

Her words are all you hear

Smiles, laughter, an awkward pause

You get lost inside her eyes

The hour's speed as seconds do

It's always time that flies

The waitress tries to interrupt

While others turn to look

You know they sense the obvious

They know that you are hooked

Smiles, laughter, hardly a pause

Words flow, no need to try

The night, it's going way too fast

Oh, how the time does fly

The music stops

The lights are up

The night comes to an end

She smiles as you say goodbye

Is she more than a friend?

You smile, you laugh, and then you pause

Sometimes life gives us a prize

You hope it's soon to see her next

Another time that flies

You believe there's more than what you have

To make your life complete

You search for more to fill your soul

A goal you fail to meet

The night comes quickly yet again

Before you see the sun

The day was there for you to take

But misplaced focus won

It's right in front

It's always been

Your eyes just looked away

It's right in front, in front of you

The magic in your day

You believe there's more that you should have

To end your questioning

Your prayers are just unanswered calls

Until your reckoning

Now the sun shines bright and warm

And stays into the night

Your soul is full, your goal is met

Re-focused on the light

It's right in front

It's always been

It waits for you to heed

It's right in front, in front of you

It's all you'll ever need
