Fly Away

When she was a little girl
She believed in Santa
Yes she did
'cause she sat on his lap
And fed him cookies and innocence
And she could fly
Yes she could
With cardboard wings and magic dust
She danced in the forest with the pixies
And sailed the seas with Puff

I remember you, little one
You bounced on marshmallow and popcorn skies
But time has flown, little girl dreams float away
I now stand on the bricks of reality
Feet firmly planted in the shoes of adulthood
But sometimes, just sometimes
        I close my eyes
           Squeeze them shut
                Put on my cardboard wings
                     And fly away.
