This song is dedicated to everyone who ever had a dream & sacrificed all to make it a reality. Mine was to become a songwriter & start an awesome band in L.A. someday. Dreams DO come true after all!!


Verse 1 - Armed with all the means I will engage upon my plans.
Armed with all I need I move as swiftly as I can.
Soon I will arrive with all my dreams held in my head.
I’m down to face the day. I will be fast upon my way.
I’m so Large!!
Verse 2 - Armed with all I’ve learned I move & stay against the grain.
Armed with all I’ve seen I rise above the aeroplane.
Soon I will arise. I will amuse & entertain.
I’m down to make the grade out on the path where dreams were laid.
Chorus 1 – As the winter fades my grey skies blaze to everglades.
As the winners fall I stay emblazed in why I came.
Bridge – Show me the way. Tell me all of my dreams won’t fade.
Show me the wave. Let me ride my way to outer space.
Chorus 2 – As the winter fades my grey skies blaze to everglades.
As the winners fall I stay emblazed in why I came.
Show me the Way.
I’m Solar!!
