Born To Fly (American Idol Performance)

Born To Fly (American Idol Performance)

Lauren Alaina

I've been telling my dreams to the scarecrow
About the places that I'd like to see
I say, "Friend do you think I'll ever get there?"
Oh, but he just stands there smilin' back at me

So I confessed my sins to the preacher
About the love I've been prayin' to find
Is there a brown-eyed boy in my future, yeah
And he says, "Girl, you've got nothin' but time"

But how do you wait for heaven?
And who has that much time?
And how do you keep your feet on the ground
When you know you were born
You were born to fly

My daddy he is grounded like the oak tree
My momma she is steady as the sun
Oh, you know I love my folks
But I keep starin' down the road
Just lookin' for my one chance to run

'Cause I will soar away like a blackbird
I will blow in the wind like a seed
I will plant my heart in the garden of my dreams
I will grow up where I wander wild and free

But how do you wait for heaven?
And who has that much time?
And how do you keep your feet on the ground
When you know, you were born
You were born, yeah eeh yeah, you were born to fly

How do you wait for heaven?
And who has that much time?
And how do you keep your feet on the ground
When you know, when you know you were born to fly
You were born to fly
You were born to fly
