In the middle of the meadow I sit staring at my kite
A ball of string and a paper dream that I could not make fly
Then daddy pulled it to the sky, behind him as he ran
And said, "Girl don't be caught waiting on the wind"
The time comes when a young girl wants to leave the nest and fly
I stood there sad and proud and smiled through tears and said goodbye
I gave you boosts, I gave you wings and girl I understand
An eagle can't sit waiting on the wind
