A Place

Rainy day dreams and castles in the air Can't be found by stepping onto rainbows And I will never catch a star as it races from the sky Heaven seems so far away, yet I could bring it closer if I tried And, if I stand tall, I might one day touch the moon For I know there's a place as beautiful as my heart imagines And some day, love will take me there. Behind the sky is a place just waiting there for me.

A place of rainy day dreams And castles in the air
