Wendy will you open your window tonight?
I've been searching for my shadow
and need rest until morning's light

Can you hear when my heart's beating?
Palpitating like a clock
for an hour or forever
tick tock, tick tock

please tell me one more story
it's something I do crave
one that I remember just like when...

Wendy I...

Up a thousand feet all fear forgot
where we don't age
our hearts just stop
you don't grow

I'm up, alone, the world, so blind
you are my northern star
and just as bright
take me home

I'm finally home

Ms. Darling will you take my hand?
or hook if that's you'd rather
and off to Neverland

it's easy to remember
how happy I am inside
I'll tell you another secret:
you're the reason I can fly

Oh Wendy I...

When you're a thousand feet
above the ground
you give my heart
something to be jealous about

And up above the world so high
you are
the brightest diamond
in my skies

Oh Wendy my
my heart still beats for you
knowing I...
should have grown old with you
