Author's Note: It's upbeat, I swear. Hope you enjoy it. It's sort of my take on "Alice in Wonderland" while keeping it in a context that relates to real life as well.

There's this girl

People think she's nuts

They think she must be high

But she just sees things differently

She's running through a maze

But she knows her way through

Going to make it to where she needs to be

She's checking her watch as it starts to get dark

She's passed the woods

She's made it through the night

She's figured out the riddle

And now she's reaching the garden

Where they're waiting to hear her speak

She starts to explain

Tell them why she's late

But no sound comes out

When she finally says it then think she's crazy

That she's a few cards shy of a full deck

But she's come too far to go back now

Even though that's what she thinks she wants to do

She's passed the woods

She's made it through the night

She's figured out the riddle

And now she's reaching the garden

Where they're waiting to hear her speak

They tell her that she's dreaming

There's no way what she's seeing is real

She tells them they'd see it too if they'd just open their eyes

They're checking their watches

It's getting late

Time's running out

She's passed the woods

She's made it through the night

She's figured out the riddle

And now she's reaching the garden

Where they're waiting to hear her speak

She's not crazy

She's not out of her mind

She's not dreaming

What she sees is real

It's just not the reality they can see
