I hear you loud and clear
I hear that no one like me
Has ever done something like that
I hear that no one has ever done it! Period!
I hear that it is big and mighty
That it is scary and weighty

I hear you loud and clear
Because with every word you speak
My wings crack a little more
With every word you speak
I cower a little more on the inside

I hear you
I hear the contempt
But I also hear your fear
I hear you loud and clear
I hear that if I achieve the impossible
You will see that it is not impossible after all
And wonder why you didn’t dream as big!
I hear you loud and clear
And something in me hurts for you
I wish you’d see that there’s enough light for us all to sparkle

I hear you, I hear you
And I still hear you
Though from a distance
Even as I fly
Broken wings and all
Towards doing that which you said I could not do!
