All the colors and no one to pick.
All I see are colors, leaves, and sticks.
The water is green and pretty as can be.
The fish is swimming under the sea.
Beauty, beauty, is all I see.
I wish I could stay here and be so free.
I see red, orange, yellow, and green leaves.
I can just wish all of my beliefs.
I feel so free, I feel so wide,
It’s because of what I’ve seen outside.
I am the princess, waiting to be saved,
Ever since I’ve seen what’s outside.
All I smell is fresh air.
I wish you could be here to share.
I’ve never seen such beauty in my life.
I wish I would stay here all my life.
