Who would've thought the boy could fly?
Instead of escape he chose to try to teach the rest of us.
He told us of diamonds in the sky.
'Cause only the dreamer knows that life is not the world you see.

It gets better than this,
Imagination exists.

'Cause you're not alone.
You carried the weight of us all.
You're not alone anymore.
Still trying to bring us home.
Remember the hero.
The boy that could reach to your soul,
And you're not alone anymore.

Who would've thought the boy could fly?
He took on the darkness of his mind where we won’t dare to go.
He's keeping the optimist alive.
'Cause only the dreamer knows that life is not the world you see.

It gets better than this,
Imagination exists.

'Cause you’re not alone.
You carried the weight of us all.
You're not alone anymore.
Remember the hero.
The boy that could reach to your soul,
And you’re not alone anymore.
Still trying to bring us home.
It get's better than this,
Imagination exists.
So much better, better than this.

'Cause you're not alone.
You carried the weight of us all.
You're not alone anymore.
Remember the hero.
The boy that could reach out for your soul,
And you're not alone anymore.
Still trying to bring us home.

How would have thought the boy could fly?

    My InterpretationI'm not sure what Rubylux's meaning is, but for me it's about someone in your life that everyone had underestimated and how that person had surprised everyone by going beyond everyone's expectations and by being a positive force in their life. About how they inspired others by their actions. I also get a more of a past tense vibe from this song, meaning maybe this person died or left after some heroic action.
