Me'shell Ndegeocello – Open Your Eyes, You Can Fly (Featuring Vanessa Williams) lyrics

Put a period in your life
And make a fresh start
Exercise your mind and open up your heart
Think of all the things you may want to do
And throw out your old clothes
That make you dreary
And dress up in something new

Focus on your future
And stop turning to look back
Pack your bags and board a train
Travel on a different track

Don't be afraid to take the chance
To make a different turn
Just imagine all that lays ahead
And the opportunities to learn

Step out in front and pick up the pace
Smooth the wrinkles in your brow
And put a smile on your face

Never be afraid to love
Never be afraid to just be
Just cast away the chains of doubt
Have the courage to be free

Don't cloud your eyes with other's lies
See only what you want to see
Just duplicate this simple truth
Have the courage to be free

Open your eyes, you can fly
Open your eyes, you can fly
You can fly

Never be afraid to love, no, no, no, no, no
Never be afraid to just be
Cast away the chains of doubt
Have the courage to be free


Fly away

You can't wait for other's
To applaud what you do
So just congratulate yourself
And start something new
