Track Name: How High Can You Fly
How high can you fly
standin’ up there on the higher ground so close to the edge that’s where i finally found you. you’d given it up wanna fly away, closing all the doors on memories that remind you. How high can you fly? it’s not easy you know. why give it a try? when goin’ back home’s just another lonely place to go.  turn your face to the sun and breathe in the air, take a look at all the people and the magic that surrounds you. there’s a cravin’ in your heart it’s a cry for love, there are moments in your life when you wish you had it all behind you. how deep can you fall? true love can be found. stop acting so small, ‘cos fallin’ in love’s not fallin’ in a hole in the ground. it’s not easy, not easy to fly, why give it a…. why give it a try?  at the corner of the street, every crossing of the road there are signals to the signs of things that will astound you. walk across the bridge to the other side, take a big step for the love that’s there inside you. how deep can you fall? true love can be found. why stand there so tall, ‘cos fallin’ in love’s not fallin’ in a hole in the ground. it’s not easy, not easy to fly, why give it a…. why give it a try? it’s not easy, not easy to fly, why give it a…. why give it a try?  standin’ up there on the higher ground so close to the edge that’s where you’re gonna find me - how high can you fly? It’s not easy - i’m giving it up wanna fly away, closing all the doors on memories that remind me - true love can be found. it’s not easy - why give it a try? ‘cos fallin’ in love’s not fallin’ in a hole in the ground
