She Might Change The World (For Allison)

She’s starting small
But she’ll hit the big time
Crawling coast to coast
Then jetting around the sun

So much to learn
So much to get to know
If it’s not written down
She’ll have to learn as she goes

One day smiling at shadows
Another reaching for the ring
The next step could be anything
Anything

If she’s a quiet kind of force
A behind-the-scenes girl
Or if her reach is wide and amplified
She might change the world

She’s starting small
Like chickens and eggs
Some who’ve seen them
Say she has chicken legs

But she’s kicking hard
Then she’ll climb a stair
Then she’s off and running
To who the hell knows where

One day reaching for the keyhole
Another slamming the door
The next step could lead anywhere
Anywhere

If she’s a quiet kind of force
A behind-the-scenes girl
Or if her reach is wide and amplified
She might change the world.
