In Conclusion...
A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true
*Dong* Oh that clock *Dong*
Oh kill joy *Dong*
I hear you, get up you say, time to start another day, even he orders me around

Well there's one thing they can't order me to stop dreaming and maybe someday...
*Chorus repeats*
That's just gonna have to wait a while
Ain't got time for messing around
And it's not my style
This old town can slow you down
People taking the easy way
But I know exactly where I'm going
Getting closer and closer every day

I remember Daddy told me: “Fairytales can come true
You gotta make 'em happen, it all depends on you"
So I work real hard each and every day
Now things for sure are going my way
Just doing what I do
Look out boys, I'm coming through

There's been trials and tribulations
You know I've had my share
But I've climbed the mountain, I've crossed the river
And I'm almost there, I'm almost there
I'm almost there!
All those days watching from the windows
All those years
outside looking in
All that time never even knowing
Just how blind I've been
Now I'm here, blinking in the starlight
Now I'm here,
suddenly I see
Standing here, it's all so clear
I'm where I'm meant to be
And at last I see the light
it's like the fog has lifted
And at last
I see the light
it's like the sky is new
And it's warm and real and bright
the world has somehow shifted

All at once
everything looks different
Now that
I see you
Look at me, I will never pass for a perfect bride, or a perfect daughter
Can it be, I'm not meant to play this part?
Now I see, That if I were truly to be myself, it would break my family's heart
Who is that girl I see, staring straight back at me
Why is my reflection someone I don't know?
Somehow I cannot hide who I am, though I tried
When will my reflection show who I am inside
when will my reflection show who I am inside
- Examine artifact
- Isolate metaphors
- Sort metaphors
- vehicle/tenor
- Explanation of artifact
Flippin' your fins, you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumping, dancing
Strolling along down a - what's that word again?

Up where they walk, up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin' free - wish I could be
Part of that world
What would I give if I could live out of these waters?

What would I pay to spend a day warm on the sand?
Bet'cha on land they understand
That they don't reprimand their daughters
Proper women sick of swimmin'
Ready to stand
