Lyrics

She stands alone waitin? for somethin?
Her head hangs low, lookin? for nothin?
To scared to reach, to scared to try
To see how high, she can fly

So what are you waiting for?
Just walk right through that door
The dreams you dare to keep
Will stay just in your sleep
Until you make them come true.

She looks inside, heart beatin? don?t run
And grabs her pride, listens to no one
She won?t look back to say what if
To take this chance, it can?t be missed

So what are you waiting for?
Just walk right through that door
The dreams you dare to keep
Will stay just in your sleep
Until you make them come true.

Then you?ll be dancin?, dancin?, dancin?,
You?ll be dancin? in the sun
And the world around you
Has only just begun

And you?ll be dancin?, dancin?, dancin?,
Girl you?re dancin? in the sun
And the world around you
Has only just begun, it?s just begun

She won?t be long, takin? that first step
To standin? strong, see what will be next
Prepared to fight, prepared to try
To reach up high, and touch the sky

So what are you waiting for?
Just walk right through that door
The dreams you dare to keep
Will stay just in your sleep
Until you make them come true.
