lyrics

Why do they build mountains so high
Why do they build rivers so wide
Why do they put skies above our heads so high that we can’t reach them
Why do they build valleys so low
Maybe they don’t tell us because they don’t know
And what’s the deal with gravity it’s heavy and it keeps me from flying

I won’t wait forever for these answers
I won’t sell my soul to know the truth
But if man could walk on water then I’m sure with a little practice
His heart could learn to fly

So why do they build river so wide
Why do they build mountains so hight
Well just cause I don’t know doesn’t mean that I’m not gonna try to climb them
I’m gonna climb them
And reach my fingers up into the clouds
And try to fly
I’m gonna fly
Just watch me
Fly, Fly, Fly

‘Cause this heart has had wings since before the civil war
Built on the strength of generations’ revolutions
And if man could walk on water then I’m sure with a little practice
His heart could learn to fly
You just have to try

To climb those mountains no matter how high
To cross those rivers no matter how wide
To lend a hand although you’re hurting deep inside
And be that person that you want to be before you die
Because we all die

Maybe that’s why they build the mountains so high
Why they build the rivers so wide
And why they put the skies above our heads so we can practice flying

Yes you can fly
Fly, fly, So practice your flying
