I've been trying to open the door
To the secret of my destiny
And every new road I think is the one
Seems to lead right back to me

I've looked for a way to be wiser
A way to be strong
Now I see the answer was hiding
In me all along

And I'm ready to fly over the sun like a rocket to heaven
And I'm ready to soar right through the sky
Never dreamed I'd find something to lift me so high
I've always had wings but I wasn't ready to fly

Restless, hopeless, and misunderstood
Like so many others I know
So busy tryin' to keep holdin' on
When I should've been letting go

I was given the gift to find it
The spirit inside me
But I never really imagined
All I could be

And I'm ready to fly over the sun like a rocket to heaven
And I'm ready to soar right through the sky
Never dreamed I'd find something to lift me so high
I've always had wings but I wasn't ready to fly

The answer to all of my wonder
Was right in my hands
Now it's time for me to discover
All that I am

And I'm ready to fly over the sun like a rocket to heaven
And I'm ready to soar right through the sky
Never dreamed I'd find something to lift me so high
I've always had wings but I wasn't ready to fly

I've always had wings, now I'm finally ready to fly
