Songs of Choices and Dreams

There is a secret I should keep
Someone else wants to know
what will I choose to do
A whispered word so small and thin
Turn into feathers in the wind
It may or may not be true
Will broken promises to friends
Make me lonely in the end
Or am I loved and trusted well
Because of stories I don’t tell

Laugh or cry quit or try in this life I’m going through every day another fork in the road that will take me somewhere new
And every step makes the person I will be
I have dreams in my heart and I try to hear their voices
When I make my choices
There is a child who needs my time
To read a story, sing a rhyme
What will I choose to do
Every day I run around
I hardly have the chance to dress it down
But what is he going through
Will the boy become a man
Who will wonder if I understand
Who he is, what he needs,
So much of this is up to me
Laugh or cry, quit or try, in this life I’m going through every day another fork in the road that will take me somewhere new
And every step makes the person I will be
I have dreams in my heart and I try to hear their voices
When I make my choices
Everywhere I choose to go
Touches someone I don’t even know
Just like waves in the sea that finally touch the shore
And every chance I choose to take is another way my heart could break
But I can’t stand still anymore
Laugh or cry, quit or try, in this life I’m going through every day
another fork in the road that will take me somewhere new
And every step makes the person I will be
I have dreams in my heart and I try to hear their voices
When I make my choices
I have dreams in my heart and I try to hear their voices
When I make my choices
