2. Transformation (3:13)
[Violin: Ben Mathot]

[Teacher:]
I don’t mean to interfere, but I see quite a change in you
The distant gaze has disappeared
The brilliant light behind your eyes is shining through

[Prodigy:]
You’re right, it’s strange
It all seems different now
The mist has cleared, I’m finally awake
But it’s hard to change
I want to live but I don’t know how
I need someone to help me find my way

[Teacher:]
You can count on me
I’m glad to have such a mind to teach
Life doesn’t have to be a mystery
You can live my dream
And scale the heights I could never reach
We can play a part changing history
Our time is here!

I have to say, it’s unusual
Such a transformation, overnight!
I wouldn’t have thought it was possible
I don’t want to scare you, but it can’t be right!

[Prodigy:]
Well I don’t mind, cause I feel so much stronger now
For the first time the world is making sense

[Teacher:]
I’ll be your guide
It’s time to live and I’ll show you how
A world of endless wonder lies ahead!
