Kina Grannis – Highlighted In Green lyrics

Clock unwinding, she had waited
Far too long, sky turning to the night
"Am I alone?" she contemplated
"Is this real? Is this right?"

If I tried to come back down
To where I can see it, there's no return
And I know should I be the one to fall
I might as well beat it

Step by step, she elevated
Climbing clouds and pulling with all her might
Closing her mind to the ill-fated
She sighed

Could this leap be overrated?
Could she prove she had control of her life?
She had for so long anticipated
This test of courage, this test of pride


And I, what I have found
Is that I am real
Free to be just the way I am
And if what I am
Is troublesome for you
Go on and ignore me
