It was a song I wrote a long time ago:-

I came out of the darkness and danced in life's light
Like a moth round a candle frame
I never intended, attacked or defended
But I got burnt just the same.
I've sat in the circle, I've stood in the wings,
Never had a curtain call,
Sometimes I think it's just all a mistake,
Maybe I shouldn't be here at all.

But I'm still here scheming, I'll never stop dreaming,
I may not have got very far,
But I won't let you beat me, you'll never defeat me,
I'm gonna reach for the stars.

Now some men attack life as if it's a fight,
Or a contest that they have to win,
And I wouldn't mind going just a round or two myself,
Won't somebody please let me in.
Looking back down the lost years of my youth,
It seeems it was always the same,
I sat on the sidelines fielding stray balls,
With never a kick in the game.

But I'm still here scheming, I'll never stop dreaming,
I may not have got very far,
But I won't let you beat me, you'll never defeat me,
I'm gonna reach for the stars.

So God in your Heaven, look down on me now,
Here I stand, I'm afraid and alone,
I took just one breath in the Valley Of Death,
Now I can't find my way home.
I've danced with the moonbeams and slept with the sun,
And some people say I'm no good,
But I'm not asking you for monuments or fame,
Just a footprint to show where I stood.

When I was here scheming, I never stopped dreaming,
I may not have got very far,
But I won't let you beat me, you'll never defeat me,
One day I'll look down from the stars.
One day I'll look down from the stars.
