Born To Fly Lyrics

by American Idol

I've been tellin' my dreams to the scarecrow
About the places that I'd like to see
I say, "Friend do you think I'll ever get there?"
Oh, but he just stands there smilin' back at me

So I confess my sins to the preacher
About the love I'd been prayin' to find
Is there a brown-eyed boy in my future?
And he says, "Girl, you've got nothin' but time"

But how do you wait for Heaven?
And who has that much time?
And how do you keep your feet on the ground?
When you know that you were born, you were born to fly

My daddy, he is grounded like the oak tree
My momma, she is as steady as the sun
Oh you know I love my folks, but I keep starin' down the road
Just lookin' for my one chance to run

Hey 'cause I will soar away like the blackbird
I will blow in the wind like a seed
I will plant my heart in the garden of my dreams
And I will grow up where I want, wild and free

Oh how do you wait for Heaven?
And who has that much time?
And how do you keep your feet on the ground?
When you know that you were born, you were born, yeah
You were born to fly

So how do you wait for Heaven?
And who has that much time?
And how do you keep your feet on the ground?
When you know that you were born, you were born to fly, yeah
You were born to fly, fly, fly, fly, hey
