Sometimes all our dreams
Can seem quite absurd
And you have to go solo
Away from the herd

Sometimes you just have to
Plug your ears
And say la la la
To all of their fears

Sometimes they might wonder
Just who you’ve become
As you show your true colors
Like a rainbow undone

And sometimes you’ll find
In spite of all this
Such joy beyond words
And a life full of bliss
