Lyrics
Arrow To The Sun V1: Cast my wonder onto the Heavens Cold October, 1957 Is it just a trick of the eye Or pure science floating in the sky? Pre-Chorus: A fire was born in me that night One that would rage till the day I would die 1st Chorus: Straight like an arrow shot out to the Sun Carrying all my ambitions Preserving my sight and saving my lungs Blasting me out of this coal miners' town V2: Thirsting for knowledge but always unquenched Never dreamed college was waiting in the distance Pre-Chorus Just poor boys, undaunted on the shoulders of Giants A thousand failed launches But we remain Defiant 2nd Chorus: Straight like an arrow shot out to the Sun Carrying all my ambitions Preserving my sight and saving my lungs Only way out of this coal miners' town Bridge: National Science Fair would take us to new heights Foul play, in the air We still won by a mile 3rd Chorus: Straight like an arrow shot out to the Sun Carrying all my ambitions Preserving my sight and saving my lungs One way ticket to Houston OUTRO: He had always preached, "It's a waste of time Cut out the rockets, and work in the mine!" But on that day, I could see it in my fathers' eyes A look of great pride worth more to me than any prize Lyrics by Edward B. Millican / Music & Vocals Serious-Music © 2015 by Serious-Music
