They said I’m only young, they said I’m only stupid.
They said I can’t decide, for my love was planned by cupid.
I said I’ve been across the world, and sailed a thousand seas.
I said I’ve seen a dozen words, carved in the oldest trees.
They said I have only a little space, to fit my little mind.
They said It’s not a game of hide & seek, for I shall never find.
I said I haven’t breathed the wind that blows across their cheeks.
I said I’ve only felt the clouds at every mountain peak.
They said I’m inexperienced, naïve to believe so.
They said I’m far from realty, and to the lost I go.
I said I know little of life, for it has given me few.
I said I know it all through dreams, for they are always true.
They said dreaming is an act, only left for the fools.
They said I wasn’t sane enough, to follow all the rules.
I said I’ve found a path, of awe-alarming light.
I said I wasn’t blind enough, to run away in fright.
They said I’ve only little time, to discover what is right.
They said I’m not smart so far, and neither am I bright.
I said I’ve only been to the moon, once or maybe twice.
I said I’ve waved to all the stars, and they were awfully nice.

I said I’ve heard of happiness, as butterflies hear of spring.
They said it’s just a lie, what life can never bring.
