A Chance to Fly

I heard the mountains

calling out in distress

saying come on over

and fix our loneliness

It's been a while but

I know I still belong

where the windows look like paintings

hung up on the wall

And those nights

stars and crooked alibis

well we finally could take on the world

from the edges of our seat

waiting only for a chance to fly

somewhere that's not here tonight

We watched as the

sun fell low in the sky

yeah and the atmosphere

burned red through the pines

And I saw angels gasp at the 

snow capped peaks

saying wouldn't it be nice

if our gowns were white as these

The here and now

just took it's leave with tomorrow

well I heard that they're

going way out west

I'll be ready in the morning

I'll pack my things and rewrite my fate

and I'll see you again some sunny day

I remember the thirteenth fire burning bright 

the shadows tricked our eyes

we saw the ghosts flying overhead

from all the dreams that we lost

spending our time growing up instead

And those nights

stars and crooked alibis

well we finally could take on the world

from the edges of our seat

waiting only for a chance to fly

somewhere that's not here tonight
