I'm ready with my back to the wind And I will fly higher than I ever have been I'll follow all my dreams My destiny is waiting for me I am on my way Heading for a sunny blue sky And all my past worries, I will leave them behind Now it is time for the beginning of a brighter day It's a brighter day There was a time when I was lost and alone I couldn't find what I was wanting the most Looking around for anybody else To show the way I wondered how the light could ever break through When I had built the highest wall around me Then I soon realized it was up to my heart To spread my wings and fly again So here I go, I have got my back to the wind And I will fly higher than I ever have been I'll follow all my dreams My destiny is waiting for me I am on my way Heading for a sunny blue sky And all my past worries, I will leave them behind Now it is time for the beginning of a brighter day It's a brighter day
