Shooting stars light up the night

lightbirds dance across the floor

some of us enjoy their light

while others wish for more

life's rhythms change with time and space

we cannot hide from their dance

sometimes we only choose the place

to take another chance

 

          Is it crazy to think

          that after all the wars

          that chances can be taken

          and explored?

 

          Is it crazy to think

          that after all the scars

          that chances can be taken

          to become like shooting stars?

 

Can you be strong

and still be tender

can you take control

and still surrender

the wings of night spread 'cross the room

and we are freed

from our captive cocoons

to fly

to fly on light

to fly

to fly the night

to fly

to fly and to remember

we are lightbirds

we are lightbirds

we are lightbirds

  

 

Lightbirds

 

Can you be strong

and still be tender

can you take control

and still surrender

the wings of night spread 'cross the room

and we are freed

from our captive cocoons

to fly

to fly on light

to fly

to fly the night  

to fly

to fly and to remember

we are lightbirds
