Candy Carpenter of The Band Wanted has been writing and fine tuning this song for the past 5 years. Based on her own personal experiences as a child, this song has been described as dark. However, Joshua Carpenter adds an upbeat flare to the song with a banjo type sound on the piano and bass, accompanied by Bob Baxter on the pedal steel and Candy providing a unique percussion sound on the spoons.
Running and dancin’ in the warm sunlight
Singing with such delight
She lights up with joy
With every person she meets
Momma tells her ‘bout the monsters outside
She shuts the shades and warns her to hide
Strangers are the ones to fear
Oh, But she knows
Teachers tell her she will never succeed
Day dreamin - no one knows what she sees
When she’s creating her dreams
the nightmares leave
But the evil lives just down the Hall!
They pretend it’s outside these walls!
This house is his cage
And momma’s keepin him safe,
We saw it all, and she knows....
Oh Fly away....fly away
dream all your dreams and forget all the pain
In your dreams you get to be you
and someday, your dreams will be truth,
And you’ll Know
