So dark the night when he traveled without sight
Through the trees and the clouds
Searching for a bough to rest his tired head
From the flight which he just led

She wants to be that way
Oh, to be that way
She wants to be

Below the tree lay a sight for no one to see
A broken heart in two, and a child's mood that is so blue
Tearstained cheeks
Take a peek at the vision up above
Hovering over her like a dove

She wants to be that way
Oh, to be that way
She wants to be

So cold the air as it flutters and fluffs his hair
And he yearns to find that dawn's just on its way
To bring a bright new day
And she turns to see all of the veins in the leaves

She wants to be that way
Oh, to be that way
She wants to be

The stains on her cheeks
Sparkle in the moonbeam, she speaks
And she wipes her knees
And opens her eyes to see
The scrape was already healing
The whole time she was appealing

She wants to be that way
Oh, to be that way
She wants to be
