Intro: Ab Ab Bbm Eb

Verse:
Ab
Little boy, when you speak
Ab
I can't help but kiss your cheeks
Bbm
I love the way you grab my hands
Eb
And tell me all about your plans

Verse:
Ab
Rocket high, comets fly
Ab
You and I could take a ride
Bbm
And fly away to Neverland
Eb
And give our best to Peter Pan

Chorus:
           Db
When you reach for the stars
           Bbm
Don't forget who you are
                    Fm                                Eb
And please don't turn around and grow up way too fast
           Db      
See the sand in my grasp
           Bbm
From the first to the last
           Fm                          Eb
Every grain becomes a memory of the past
     Db              Bbm
Oh, life's an hourglass
Eb                  Ab
Life's an hourglass

Verse -same as first-:
Story's read, prayer is said
Close your eyes sleepyhead
While angels linger in your dreams
And hold you in their feathered wings
Just like you, I was small
Not that long ago at all
I wish you all the happiness
That God gives freely if you ask

Chorus:
           Db
When you reach for the stars
           Bbm
Don't forget who you are
                    Fm                                Eb
And please don't turn around and grow up way too fast
           Db      
See the sand in my grasp
           Bbm
From the first to the last
           Fm                          Eb
Every grain becomes a memory of the past
     Db              Bbm
Oh, life's an hourglass
Eb                  Ab
Life's an hourglass
