When the sun shines
The grass grows
Things are happening
No one else knows

People live
That's plain to see
Yet I don't think
Anyone notices me

I live in shadows
Condemned by the blessed
Who don't know how it feels
To be different from the rest

They have no idea
What I'm capable of
If they'd just give me a chance
To earn their love

One of these days
I'll make myself known
And everyone will see
How much I've grown

They'll praise me much
And all be proud
And say I love you
Even out loud

I realize I'm crazy
Who'd ever praise you?
When's the last time
A dream you wanted came true?

That doesn't stop me from wanting
Or dreaming of the day
When I'll shed my shackles
And fly far away
