"If I Could Fly" as written by and J. Gilliam D. Austin....
A thousand people on the street,
The rain is trying to drown my feet.
The cold bites into every bone.

The solemn faces pass me by,
The grave veneer on buried smiles.
A crowded train to take me home.

If I close my eyes a minute,
See a world within a minute.
Stand alone and grow my wings to take me high.

If I could fly,
See the world beneath me,
Feel as though I'm set free.
Oh, if I could fly.

A simple smile can change a day,
An understanding look can say
"I know exactly how you feel".

But we have learned to build our walls
So very strong and very tall
For fear of what the world might steal.

If I close my eyes a minute,
See a world within a minute.
Stand alone and grow my wings to take me high.

If I could fly,
See the world beneath me,
Feel as though I'm set free.
Oh, if I could fly.

If I could fly,
See the world beneath me,
Feel as though I'm set free.
Oh, if I could fly.
