Lyrics:One of those days
that just comes and goes
it's not so special
she watches the
birds
that rest on a ledge
outside her room
the wallpaper old and faded
a
crack in the window pane
the radio just keeps playing
playing that same old song.


She smiles to herself
"they think that i'm strange...
...they say I'm a
dreamer
...but I don't complain,
though I don't have much
to call my own."

and she's not a movie star, no
and she's not a beauty queen
she'll tell you it
doesn't matter
'cause she's not the only one
she says,

"I know a place

where I keep the best of things
I'm not gonna wait
for my piece of heaven.

Where there's a road
it leads to the promised land
I just turn the key
the
key to the
...kingdom..."

she stares at the page
of a new magazine, the
morning papers
she walks into town
and catches a show
if she can find the time

and she's not a movie star, no
and she's not a beauty queen
she'll tell you it
doesn't matter
'cause she's not the only one.
she says,

"I know a place

where I keep the best of things
I'm not gonna wait
for my piece of heaven

where there's a road
it leads to the promised land
I just turn the key
the
key to the
...kingdom..."
