When Will My Life Begin lyrics

Seven AM, the usual morning lineup
Start on the chores and sweep
till the floor's all clean
Polish and wax, do laundry and mop and shine up
Sweep again and by then, it's like 7:15.

And so I'll read a book or maybe two or three
I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery
I'll play guitar and knit
And cook and basically
Just wonder when will my life begin?

Then after lunch
it's puzzles and darts and baking
Paper mache, a bit of ballet and chess
Pottery and ventriloquy, candle-making
Then I'll stretch, maybe sketch,
Take a climb, sew a dress!

And I'll reread the books
If I have time to spare
I'll paint the walls some more,
I'm sure there's room somewhere.

And then I'll brush and brush,
and brush and brush my hair
Stuck in the same place I've always been.

And I'll keep wonderin' and wonderin'
And wonderin' and wonderin'
When will my life begin?

Tomorrow night
the lights will appear
Just like they do
on my birthday each year.
What is it like out there where they glow?
Now that I'm older,
Mother might just let me go.

Look at the world so close
And I'm halfway to it
Look at it all so big
Do I even dare
Look at me, there at last
I just have to do it
Should I? No
Here I go

Just smell the grass, the dirt
Just like I dreamed they'd be
Just feel that summer breeze
The way it's calling me
For, like, the first time ever
I'm completely free
I could go running and racing
And dancing and chasing
And leaping and bounding
Hair flying, heart pounding
And splashing and reeling
and finally feeling
That's when my life begins

I can't believe I did this!
