Pearl

You remind me of me
when I was your age
Like a bat out of hell
But still in a cage
up and down you’re looking for some kinda key

You’ve got passion to burn
your motor’s prime
you’ve got so much to learn
in so little time
dusk till dawn your looking for some one to be

Keep your eyes on the moon
you’re gonna get there real soon.

But along the way put in the hours
along the way smell the flowers you see so carefully
hold your heart close to you
and let it go for someone true when your ready
and you will be
so don’t mind the wait, now, girl
cause I know you’re gonna be a pearl

And after a while the passion fades
and you’ll get cut by sharper blades
have no fear you’ll have thicker skin
And you’ll back up and hit rewind
a higher calling you will find
have no doubt you’ll know just where to begin

so close your eyes make the leap
you’ve got so much to reap

But along the way put in the hours
along the way smell the flowers you see so carefully
hold your heart close to you
and let it go for someone true when your ready
and you will be
so don’t mind the wait, now, girl
cause I know you’re gonna be a pearl

some things won’t have a place in your heart
and you should let them go
for those with which you never want to part
their gonna need the room to grow

so while heaven waits you’ll go through hell
but the flames will only crack the shell
and you’ll be so polished you’ll shine

Keep your eyes on the moon
you’re gonna get there so very, very soon
and while you wait the world might come to you, you never know

But along the way put in the hours
along the way smell the flowers you see so carefully
hold your heart close to you
and let it go for someone true when your ready
and you will be
so don’t mind the wait, now, girl
cause I know you’re gonna be a pearl
