Lyrics

These lyrics come directly from a handwritten lyrics sheet from Andrew Horowitz himself. Thus, making them 100% accurate for the first time several years after the album was initially released, as he never provided lyrics beforehand.

I once knew a girl who had daises for fingers
Grew lollipops straight from her hair
She traveled by pony and never looked lonely
My friends she'd insist without care

Called all her family spoke mostly harmony
Seemed to have it figured out
Painted in rainbows and shades only she knows
Around her ideas came to sprout

And now that we are older she still haunts me
Through dark and warm she always wears a smile
So for you, my friend, a song, to say
I'm still inspired by you

I asked her how one could be positive and hopeful 
When everything falls apart
Life isn't fair she said make it a fair she said 
Always be prepared she said to sing

Love is invented and wars are prevented 
And you can do anything
Chin up and be up for that's what I'll be 
When we're eighty years young we'll be here you'll see

And now that we are older she still haunts me
Through dark and warm she always wears a smile
So for you, my friend, a song, to say
I'm still inspired by you

Somewhere in the world she plants trails of jelly beans, 
Some leave them be and some take
In her eyes she makes no mistake, 
It's now a better place

When one finally whisked her away from the rest, 
She pointed out we all continue to spin
Around and around 'til we lift off the ground, 
For what would she be without us

And now that we are older she still haunts me
Through dark and warm she always wears a smile
So for you, my friend, a song, to say
I'm still inspired by you
I'm still inspired by you
I'm still inspired by you
