Lyrics

The willow tree swayed and the clouds rolled away

I lay on my back in the breeze

And whispered my plans to the mud on my hands

And the bruises that covered my knees

I was a child I was reckless and wild

Fearless and free and profound

I flew through the world like a Cannonball Girl

Safe with no feet on the ground

 

The world it did spin, casting time to the wind

And I struggled and failed and held tight

To my faith and my truth, the ideals of youth

To the path that I hoped would be right

A young woman-child I was reckless and wild

Fearless and free and profound

I flew through the world like a Cannonball Girl

Searching for my solid ground

 

And you were a plan that I told to those clouds

A promise I made and refused to put down

So long before you were here laughing out loud

I could feel you…

I could feel you…

 

I watch your sweet face, every hair out of place

As you dance to the drummer you hear

And your perfect heart is my best work of art

You make everything else disappear

And you are my child; you’re so reckless and wild

Fearless and free and profound

You’ll fly through the world like a Cannonball Girl

Safe with no feet on the ground

Go and fly through the world like a Cannonball Girl

Safe with no feet on the ground
