"No! Mom I want to do gymnastics!" I shouted at my mother Renee' "And I want to sing.!"

"Those aren't practical things!" My dad answered,

"How can you say that?! Don't you think that I can do this?!" I shouted heartbroken, they wouldn't let me live my dream no matter how much I begged. I finally gave up and let out an aggrivated shriek. I was going to college soon, I needed to make my own decisions but I had no money. Maybe if I , perfect I could apply for a scholar ship but what college would I go to?! (I completely made this college up), I got on my lap top and surfed the 's when I found it, University...

" University," I whispered. They were giving out scholarships too! I quickly sat to work on my keyboard. It had all the stops. You could even play the drums, or any other type of instruments, on it and then blended it together.I took out my note book....WHat would I call it? A rhthym flowed through my head.

My eyes are open wide
By the way I made it through the day
I watch the world outside
By the way I'm leaving out today

Perfect. The rest of the song came naturally. I began playing and mixing, I was so glad it was the Summer! I've been working for three straight days.

I let it play...so what was I waiting for.

My eyes are open wide
By the way I made it through the day
I watch the world outside
By the way I'm leaving out today

I just saw Haley's Comet, she waved
Said, "Why are you always running in place?"
Even the man in the moon disappeared
Somewhere in the stratosphere

Tell my mother, tell my father I've done the best I can
To make them realize this is my life, I hope they understand
I'm not angry, I'm just saying
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

Please don't cry one tear for me
I'm not afraid of what I have to say
This is my one and only voice
So listen close, it's only for today

I just saw Haley's Comet, she waved
Said, "Why are you always running in place?"
Even the man in the moon disappeared
Somewhere in the stratosphere"

Tell my mother, tell my father I've done the best I can
To make them realize this is my life, I hope they understand
I'm not angry, I'm just saying
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

Here is my chance
This is my chance

Tell my mother, tell my father I've done the best I can
To make them realize this is my life, I hope they understand
I'm not angry, I'm just saying
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

I recorded the tape put it the small box along with a home video of me at one of my gymnastic competitions and soon it was on its way to Untiversity.
