Morning sunlight on her face
As he wakes her with a kiss
She's been everything he wanted

They were married as high school sweethearts
Never dreamed it'd be like this
Finding nothing for them comes easy

Trying hard just to make a living
Seems life won't give them a break
Well as long as they've got each other
Ooh, they'll find a way

There's a better life
Waiting out there somewhere
They gotta learn to fly
Need to spread their wings to soar
There's a better life
They'll find it together (keep holding on)
She shows him rainbows every time he sees her smile

They've been more than lovers
There's no mountain they can't climb
Can't stop dreaming dreams together

Gotta rise above the crossroads
Beyond the streets they were born
To a place where prayers are answered
And battles are won

There's a better life
Waiting out there somewhere
They gotta learn to fly
Need to spread their wings to soar
There's a better life
They'll find it together
They keep holding on
It only makes them strong
They wanna learn to fly

Gotta arise above the crossroads
Beyond the streets they were born
To a place where prayers are answered
And battles are won

There's a better life
Waiting out there somewhere
They gotta learn to fly
Need to spread their wings to soar
There's a better life
They'll find it together (keep holding on)
She shows him rainbows every time he sees her smile

There's a better life
(Waiting somewhere)
They gotta learn to fly

    General CommentDeen has an incredible voice, I've listened to him sing the likes of Faithfully, Who's Crying Now and Open Arms, and it's freaky how much he sounds like Steve Perry.
