Just a day,
Just an ordinary day
Just tryin to get by
Just a boy
Just an ordinary boy
But he was looking to the sky
And as he asked if I would come along
I started to realise
That every day he finds
Just what he's looking for
Like a shooting star he shines


Now he said take my hand,
Live while you can
Don't you see your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand


And as he spoke, he spoke ordinary words
Although they did not feel
For I felt what I had not felt before
And you'd swear those words couldn't heal
And as I looked up into those eyes
His vision borrows mine
And I know he's no stranger,
For I feel I've held him for all of time


And he said take my hand
Live while you can
Don't you see your dreams right in the palm of your hand (Oh)
In the palm of your hand


Please come with me
See what I see
Touch the stars for time will not flee
Time will not flee
Can't you see


Just a dream, just an ordinary dream
As I wake in bed
And the boy, that ordinary boy
Or was it all in my head
Did he ask if I would come along
It all seemed so real
But as I looked to the door
I saw that boy standing there with a deal
And he said take my hand
Live while you can,
Don't you see your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand (oh)
In the palm of your hand (oh)
In the palm of your hand


Just a day, just an ordinary day
Just tryin to get by
Just a boy Just an ordinary boy
But he was lookin to the sky...
