Da-da, da-da
Da-da-da, da-da-da-da...

Da-da, da-da
Da-da-da, da-da-da-da...

Shipwreck in a sea of faces;
There's a dreamy world up there
Dear friends in higher places,
Carry me away from here

Travel light, let the sun eclipse you
'Cause your flight is about to leave
And there's more to this brave adventure
Than you'd ever believe...

Bird's-eye view;
Awake the stars 'cause they're all around you
Wide eyes will always brighten the blue
Chase your dreams
And remember me, sweet bravery
'Cause after all those wings will take you up so high...
So bid the forest floor good-bye as you race the wind and
Take to the sky...

(You take to the sky)
Da-da, da-da
Da-da-da, da-da-da-da...


On the heels of war and wonder,
There's a stormy world up there
You can't whisper above the thunder,
But you can fly anywhere

Purple burst of paper birds
This picture paints a thousand words
So take a breathe of myth and mystery
And don't look back

Bird's-eye view;
Awake the stars 'cause they're all around you
Wide eyes will always brighten the blue
Chase your dreams
And remember me, sweet bravery
'Cause after all those wings will take you up so high...
So bid the forest floor good-bye as you race the wind and
Take to the sky...

(Take to the sky...)

There's a realm above the trees
(Where the lost are finally found)
So touch your feathers to the breeze...
(And leave the ground)

Bird's-eye view;
Awake the stars 'cause they're all around you
Wide eyes will always brighten the blue
Chase your dreams
And remember me, sweet bravery
'Cause after all those wings will take you up so high...
So bid the forest floor good-bye as you race the wind and
Take to the sky...

You take to the sky...

(You take to the sky...)
Da-da, da-da
Da-da-da, da-da-da-da...

You take to the sky...
