lyrics

We stay up dreaming late at night
Looking at pictures that just might
Comprise the life that we're building
They say we're too young and poor
And that our dreams are nothing more
Than throwing paper airplanes at the ceiling

Ay, Wo-ah, Wo-ah-oh, Ay

I heard there's a god above
And that he dreamt up life and love
And nothing held him back until he saw it
So tell me what am I to do
Just stand in line or break the rules
I'll take my honey's hand and we'll go flying

Cuz' we never hear what they say
We'll pack our bags and drive until we find another day
We're all alone but it's okay
Whenever we get lost we'll come across another way

Come on love don't be afraid
We'll spread our wings and find some shade
Then rest our backs against a skyscraper
All the rest will point and talk
While you and me go take a walk
And prove to them our dreams are more than paper

And it's true
I was made to be with you
And there's nothing in the world that we can't do
So darlin' lay with me
As we fall asleep
They can watch us dream tonight
Just close your eyes
Every little thing will be alright
