about

A friend once told me this song reminds her of a Shel Silverstein poem.

lyrics

We could see the sun
When we were young and raw
And it looked so small
Now we know that it’s not
Well our deception was strong
And we got big and tall

So we made our plans
And like warriors we fought
And thought we’d conquer them all
We might be the ones
Who catch us all the stars
And make some big big plans

We might grow to like
The things about ourselves
We thought we’d always hate
And think up all the lines
That nobody ever wrote
And we could write them all

We might be the ones
Who catch us all the stars
And make some big big plans
We might be the ones
Who make the mothers scream and shout
And clap their hands
We might be the ones
Who gots us something to say
To our one million fans
We might be the ones
Who catch us all the stars
And make some big big plans

We might grow to like
The things about ourselves
We thought we’d always hate
And think up all the lines
That nobody ever wrote
And we could write them all

We live for what they say
And when they’re not around
They say things that are so absurd
We still might be the ones
Who say extraordinary things
And use some big big words
