Just a day, just an ordinary day
Just trying 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 realize
That every day he finds just what he's looking for
And like a shooting star he shines
And he said

Take my hand
Live while you can
If we walk now we will
Divide and conquer this land

And as he spoke, he spoke ordinary words
Although they did not feel now
For I felt what I had not felt before
And you'd swear those words could 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, now
And if we walk now we will
Divide and conquer this land
Divide and conquer this land
Divide and conquer this land

Please come with me
See what I see
Touch the stars for time will not flee
Time will not flee
And you must be
Oh
Just a dream, just an ordinary dream
As I wake in bed
And the boy, that ordinary boy
Oh was it all in my head?
Didn't 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 hands
Live while you can
And if we walk now we will
Divide and conquer this land
Divide and conquer this land
Divide and conquer this land

Just a day, just an ordinary day
Just trying to get by
Just a boy, just an ordinary boy
But he was looking to the sky
