In the middle of the meadow I sit staring at my kite
A ball of string and a paper dream that I could not make fly
Then daddy pulled it to the sky, behind him as he ran
And said, "Girl don't be caught waiting on the wind"

The time comes when a young girl wants to leave the nest and fly
I stood there sad and proud and smiled through tears and said goodbye
I gave you boosts, I gave you wings and girl I understand
An eagle can't sit waiting on the wind

If you rise for every challenge, if you run to catch your dreams
That star that you keep reaching for is closer than it seems
Heaven and earth reward all those who try and try again
And will not be caught waiting on the wind

Whatever strength you find in me I thank my father for
His wisdom faith and courage set me on a steady course
And when my sails are empty their words lift me up again
And I will not be caught waiting on the wind

If you rise for every challenge, if you run to catch your dreams
That star that you keep reaching for is closer than it seems
Storms of life may force you to change courses now and then
But never be caught waiting on the wind
Never be caught waiting, never be caught waiting on the wind
