Young child with dreams  Dream ev'ry dream on your own
When children play
 Seems like you end up alone 
Papa says he'd love to be with you
If he had the time
So you turn on the only friend you can find
 There in your mind

Shilo, when I was young 
I used to call you name
When no one else would come
Shilo, you always came
And we'd play

 Young girl with fire
 Something said she understood 
I wanted to fly
She made me feel like I could 

Held my hand out, and I let her take me
 Blind as a child 
All I saw was the way that she made me smile 
She made me smile 

Shilo, when I was young 
I used to call you name
When no one else would come
Shilo, you always came
And you'd stay

Had a dream, and it filled me with wonder 
She had other plans
"Got to go, and I know that you'll understand"
I understand 

Shilo, when I was young 
I used to call you name
When no one else would come
Shilo, you always came
Come today
