You 
Going through this stage 
It's a restless age 
Young and insecure 
Still 
There are doubts to fade 
Moments to be made 
And one of them is yours 

On the wire 
Balancing your dreams 
Hoping ends will meet their means 
But you feel alone 
Uninspired 
Well does it help you to 
Know that I believe in you 
You're an angel waiting for wings
