"Corner Of The Sky" as written by and Stephen Schwartz....
Everything has its season
Everything has its time
Show me a reason
And I'll soon show you a rhyme

Cats sit on the window sill
Children sit in the show
Why do I feel I don't fit in
Anywhere I go

Rivers belong where they can ramble
Eagles belong where they can fly
I've got to be where my spirit can run free
Gotta find my corner, of the sky

Every man his daydreams
Every man has his goal
People like the way dreams have of
Sticking to the soul

Rain comes after thunder
Winter comes after fall
Sometimes I think I'm not after
Anything at all

So many men seem destined
To settle for something small
But I, I won't rest
'Til I know I have it all
So don't ask where I'm going
Just listen when I'm gone
Far away you'll hear me singing
Softly to the dawn

Oh, rivers belong where they can ramble,
Oh, eagles belong where they can fly
I've got to be where my spirit can run free, yeah
Gotta find my corner, ooh of the sky, yeah (of the sky, yeah)
Rivers belong where they can ramble
Oh, eagles belong where they can fly (high)
Oh, I've got to be where my spirit can run free
Gotta find my corner
Gotta find my corner, yes I do
Gotta find my corner
Gotta find my corner of the sky, sky
Gotta find my corner of the sky, sky

    General CommentI think this songs makes the Statement, that yes there are lots of places for people to fit in, albeit rigit and conforming and places for people who want to just go through life nice and easy and not achieve any thing great , and that there will always be places for these people, however
    Rivers belong where they can ramble
    Eagles belong where they can fly
    I've got to be, where my spirit can run free
    Got to find my corner ,Of the Sky.
    In this verse which is constantly repeated throughout the Song, it makes the Statement, That Eagles belong where they can fly and soar and achieve great things, That Rivers belong where they can Ramble, , meaning they can go not in a defined or constructed path, they can go where ever they want and the message in this Song is, that yes, you can create your own path, your own place in the world but it is up to you to find that path, that spot and you can be free whilst doing it. . What a great song,
