Lyrics

I?ll Be A Kite
All rights reserved 2003 ┬ęKay Harris and Molly Pauken

This fast track is over-rated
Got to take care of my soul
?Cause I am fading
Ready to jump ship
Tell my mates that I am waiting
For that next trip, out of here
Might be the best way
To find
What it takes to find myself again
So lets begin to climb
Out of somewhere
If this all starts to make since to me

I think today I?ll be a Kite
With a vapor trail
Just like a big balloon
With a floating tail
Somewhere out of my head
I?ll write my name across the sky

All Night Long I, All Night Long I?ll be reaching for the sun
All Night Long I, All Night Long I?ll be reaching for the sun

I?ve got Godiva Chocalate
I?ve got a dictionary
I?ve got a notebook
Ready to be filled with my
Deep quips, my childish meandering
I can?t help this
Everytime I turn around
I find
Running through my head
And waiting for the right melody
To climb
Out of somewhere
If this all starts to make since to me

I think today I?ll be a Kite
With a vapor trail
Just like a big balloon
With a floating tail
Somewhere out of my head
I?ll write my name across the sky

All Night Long I, All Night Long I?ll be reaching for the sun
All Night Long I, All Night Long I?ll be reaching for the sun
