I built a castle in the sky and I'm on my way there
I think the trees are smiling at me as I climb in the air
silver twilight time the ground below is stretching
journey's farther than it seemed
kept the devil at bay
words reforming on the bright white page
in between make believe and destiny.

Out of the corner of my eyes the forest changes on me
all of the flowers and the trees are not where they used to be
nothing’s written in the stars
cause I can move them with my fingers
string around the moon
bend time in a rainbow
and slide down until I'm far below
in between make believe and destiny.

bring the thunder bring the lightning bring the rain
bring the floods bring the strongest hurricane
bring the earthquake bring the darkness bring the pain
cause my blood is sunlight running through my Veins.
