Too Close to the Sun
©Dave McFarlane

Doesn’t everybody have a dream
Is there, something about you nobody else can see, Do you , find yourself drifting
Thinking of the person , you want to be

2/ Everybody’s got their destiny
Some kind of purpose or reason to be
A part of the picture, an actor in the play The lead role in the movie The hero of the day

3/ Isn’t everybody scared by life
Don’t we, all wake up sometimes worried in the night, Are you, always that confident, are you happy all the time Well that day can pass by quickly and turn back into night

4/ Everybody’s got a right to dream
The right to, travel roads that others may not see To raise your own sails and set them to the wind On a journey to a destination no one else has been

Flyin too close to the sun
Flying too high and it’s scaring everyone
