When I was born
No silver spoon in my hand
No trumpet blew
No bells rang out in the land
Nobody said life would be easy
Nobody promised me an island in the sun
For all my life
I've walked as tall as I can
Among the crowd
A small invisible man
I wasn't born to be a hero
I have to make the dream become reality
I know that somewhere there must be
A golden key
And/Give me a reason to believe
There is freedom in the air
And it's easier to be/breathe
A golden key
That will open any door
And the truth that lies within
Is no secret anymore
I fill my shoes
And walk wherever they go
A man of straw
For every wind that may blow
I have to take control of my life
I want the world to see
A different side of me
Unlock these chains and set me free
A golden key
To a castle in the air
And a heaven here on earth
Will be waiting for me there
A golden key
To the place I want to be
On an island in the sun
And the hero would be me
Don't want to live my life in silence
One taste of paradise
Is all there has to be
Is all there has to be
Set me free
A golden key
To a castle in the air
And a heaven here on earth
Will be waiting for me there
A golden key
To the place I want to be
On an island in the sun
And the hero would be me
A golden key
That would open any door
And the gold that lies behind
Will be mine forevermore
A golden key
And my life would be complete
With a crown upon my head
And the whole world at my feet
A golden key...
