please, don't cry
you're just not you without that smile
and yes, i know that growing up is hard for you
but you're not alone
cuz i'm still trying to leave neverland too

when everything is said and done
and every acquaintance has come and gone
whatever adventure unfolds for you next
i pray you find courage to take the first step

cuz everybody's heard this old routine
second star to the right, straight on til morning
but you're not just anybody,
no, not to me
you can be anything
just spread your wings
and leave neverland behind

of course you'll have days
where you wanna give up
days where you'll stand up
and say 'that's enough'
as long as you remember to look up when you're down
things you thought impossible
whatever you've lost will be found.

beautiful dreams are waiting for you
and all that you have here is coming with you...
beautiful dreams are waiting for you
and all that you have here... you'll never lose.
