Reaching for the stars
I can't steal them they're not ours
Sits right in your hand and shines
You say reach for these
It's not easy on my knees
The way you offer me to climb

I've been entertaining yesterday
Past and present they're all mine
I don't need a gift from yesterday
I don't need a gift that shines

Kiss the book and say
You can have them if you pay but
What you hold today looks bright
Reaching for the sky won't bring them nearer if you try
Shining up above

Now I kiss the book and say
You'll touch the stars one day
It's a big tall wish to fly
It's a big tall wish to fly

I've been entertaining yesterday
past and present they're all mine
I don't need a gift from yesterday
I don't need a gift that shines
I don't need a gift that shines
