When I close my eyes I can see me flying home
High above the clouds
Swear I won't look back if I get the chance
Oh… I won't come back around

[Verse 1]
Yo, have you ever laid in bed and it's late in the night,
Starin' at the ceiling talkin' to God about life?
Askin' when it's gon' happen, just maybe it might
Made a lot of life turns, some wrong and some right
Wanna know when it's your second, your minute, your time
Sick of dreamin', wanna lay the pictures in your mind
Never been like all the others, you're one of a kind
I know you're feelin' like you wanna break free, it's a sign
Just wanna fly above it all, see where you can land
Know that you can do it on your own 'cause you can
Know that you can conquer all with a plan
Forget about the negatives buried in the sand
Yeah, never forget this is your life
Your path, your dream, this is your fight
Victory, you'll see, you'll be alright
Get through the darkness, on the other end is pure light

When I close my eyes I can see me flying home
High above the clouds
Swear I won't look back if I get the chance
Oh… I won't come back around
If I make it out this town, yeah…
Gotta make it out this town, yeah…
I'm gonna make it out this town, yeah…
I'm gonna roll the dice, and take a risk tonight
Gotta make it out this town

[Verse 2: Eve]
Have you ever felt alone like the whole world was missin'?
And when you prayed it seemed like no one was listenin'
You try to keep the faith and keep on livin'
But when you strugglin', the future looks distant
All your hopes seem to be just pipe dreams
And you really gotta wonder what your life means
That's when you gotta pick yourself up out the dust
Make a change and find a place in your heart to trust
You ain't always gotta take the first call to dough
In this life, only you can represent yourself
Never let your circumstances hold you back
You were born free, never gotta feel trapped
In the pursuit of happiness, you're gonna feel pain
But the only way to win is to stay in the game
The naysayers, they goon' try and embarrass ya
But I've learned that the struggle builds character


[Bridge: Eve]
Put your hands in the air now!
If you feel it let me hear you loud!
Put your hands in the air now!
Yeah, if ain't nobody gonna hold you down
Yeah, come on, come on...
