LYRIC



She cleans the bar
Walks out the door
Starts her car and drives away
Her tomorrows feel like yesterdays
And she can’t break away.

She gets to her room
She can finally breathe
With all the sketches on the wall
Pastel, watercolor, she can do it all
Just waiting for the day
She knows there’ll be a day when she can

Fly away from this ol’ life, away from 9 to 5
She knows that she’s not far away.
Her father says
Don’t go chasing dreams
A steady job will never let you down
These fantasies don’t ever come around
And dreams don’t pay the bills.

But what he doesn’t know is
She doesn’t have a choice
She was made to paint a masterpiece.
She knows a good thing won’t come easily
Waiting for the day when she can

Fly away from this ol’ life, away from 9 to 5
She knows that she’s not far away.
So she holds on when no one else believes
When no one else can see
The light inside keeps shining on.
Bridge
Don’t you bring her down, don’t say give it up
Honestly she can’t hear you anyway
Don’t you bring her down, don’t say give it up
Lift your eyes and soon you’ll see her

Fly away from this ol’ life, away from 9 to 5
She knows that she’s not far away.
So she holds on when no one else believes
When no one else can see
The light inside keeps shining on.
