"Born To Fly" as written by Marcus Hummon, Sara Evans and Darrell Scott....
I've been tellin' my dreams to the scarecrow
About the places that I'd like to see
I say 'friend, do you think I'll ever get there?'
Aww, but he just stands there smilin' back at me

So I confess my sins to the preacher
About the love I'd been prayin' to find
Is there a brown-eyed boy in my future, yeah
He says 'girl, you got nothin' but time.'

(But) (Oh) (So) how do you wait for heaven
And who has that much time
And how do you keep your feet on the ground
When you know
That you were born, (you were born, yeah), you were born to fly

My daddy he is grounded like the oak tree
My momma she is as steady as the sun
Oh, you know I love my folks, but I keep starin' down the road,
Just lookin' for my one chance to run

Hey, 'cause I will soar away like the blackbird
I will blow in the wind like a seed
I will plant my heart in the garden of my dreams
And I will grow up where I want, wild and free

(But) (Oh) (So) how do you wait for heaven
And who has that much time
And how do you keep your feet on the ground
When you know
That you were born, (you were born, yeah), you were born to fly

    General CommentMy 2nd favorite country song of all time. I always hated adults telling me I had nothing but time when I was younger. Homogenous adult response to the anxious juvenile interrogative.

    General Commentthis is why I admire country songs..i relate to the singer in the song, its like she wants more out of life than what people around her give to her or in the way they try to think better for her in that she can't get much out of life til the future, but anybody knows time flies and the future is really now!
    ya know what i mean?
    So I say life is too short so fuck anybody who ever tells you that you can't live your dream, their just too close for comfort and if your heart is in it, you can do anything!

    General CommentThis is one of the first songs I could really relate to. I've always been ready to leave home, but it seems that people always told me 'you'll have time for that later' when it was what I wanted at that particular time. And, basically all that she says here is true of me. I love my parents to death, but I just absolutely can't wait until I'm out on my own.
