Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Tell me when I wished on a star
Tell me what I did when I was young
Tell me when I knew and cared not
When I believed I could possess the ever sky

Tell me when I believed the stories
Each one that glimmered and shone in magic
A flitting image spoke many words,
Words that whispered what I hear no more

Tell me when I heard the bell
When I rode the train on Christmas Eve,
And met the ghost and the giver of gifts
When the charm was real, when the dream was real

Tell me when I felt the magic
When I waited at my bed and watched the clock
Wishing that my eleventh birthday
Would bring my own Hagrid and a wand to keep

Tell me when I believed something more to this world
When I believed in beyond the covered wardrobe
When I heard the dream, the train, the bell
When I knew something beyond what my parents saw

Something I would sit at my window for
And wish upon a star

I watched the Polar Express a few nights ago... Felt nostalgia for the days when I was seven and believed it, hoping I could meet Santa on Christmas Eve...
