  • Just a day, just an, ordinary day
    Just tryin' to get by
    Just a boy, just an, ordinary boy but
    He was looking to the sky and
    As he asked if I would come along
    I started to realize that everyday he finds just what he's lookin' for
    And like a shooting star he shines, and he said

    Take my hand, live while you can,
    Don't you see your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand

    And as he spoke, he spoke, ordinary words
    Though they did not feel
    For I felt what I had not felt before
    And you'd swear those words could heal and
    As I looked up into those eyes, his vision borrows mine
    And I know he's no stranger
    For I feel I've held him for all of time, and he said


    Please come with me, see what I see
    Touch the stars for time will not flee
    Time will not flee, can't you see

    Just a dream, just an, ordinary dream
    As I wake in bed
    And that boy, that ordinary boy
    Was it all in my head?
    Didn't he ask if I would come along
    It all seemed so real, but as I looked to the door
    I saw that boy standing there with a deal, and he said


    Just a day, just an ordinary day
    Just tryin' to get by
    Just a boy, just an ordinary boy, but
    He was looking to the sky
