Sara Evans Born To Fly Lyrics

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.’

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

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
