She looks up at big brother
She looks up at the sky
"You can't even reach the stars
So how in the world will I?"
He kneels down by his sister
And drops his voice down low
"Do you want to hear a secret?
But only you and I can know"
Her eyes and teeth show big and white
And she holds out her little pinky
"Tell me! Tell me! I wanna hear!
And I promise you can trust me!"
He chuckles and puts on a grin
And sets her on his knee
"Okay so first you have to know
That the stars spoke right to me
Before you were even born
Shooting stars fell down towards me
They told me something really special-
That anyone can touch them if they reach
They said it may be hard
But can happen if you try
They said you don't need to be tall
In order to touch the sky
They taught me how and said I'd show you
One day-- I guess that's today
So close your eyes and dream real big
Soon you'll be in outer space."
