"I'm Gonna Fly" as written by and Paul Brandt Jon Vezner....
Seven years old in my radio flyer
And cape tied around my neck
Top of Thompson's Hill
Billy said I was a liar
And now I'm scared half to death

Becky said Billy was dumb
I shouldn't listen to him
But I had something to prove
Ain't nobody gonna call me a chicken
Gotta do what you gotta do

I'm gonna fly
Defy space and gravity
I'm gonna fly
Billy, just you wait and see

I was just a kid
Barely eighteen years
And I couldn't wait to graduate
Confident, cocky and man it really got me
When I heard my daddy say

You oughta get some knowledge
You gotta go to college
Gotta make something of your life
But I had to do it my way
So I headed for the highway
And I followed those little white lines

I'm gonna fly
Defy space and gravity
I'm gonna fly
Makin' my own destiny

Well I crashed and I burned
But I don't regret it
You only fail if you don't try
Gonna brush off the ashes
And just forget it
I ain't perfect, yeah
But you can bet someday
I'm gonna get my wings and fly

I'm gonna fly
Defy space and gravity
I'm gonna fly
Yeah, you just got to believe
