The path before me burns bright as a sunflower,
Joy spreading out to the sun,
I can see all before me.
I know my path
Not even my shadow’s afraid!

Bridges scar the yellow path,
Their actions black with soot
They burned bright once upon a time,
But there was no manual for keeping their flame,
And they turned dark.

I’ll build myself bridges to cover them
All I need is instructions, and a little help,
I’ll turn the path bright yellow again
And since it’s so yellow already,
It won’t be hard!
