Track Name: Stephen Hawley - I Can
I Can

The first step is a glide
Cold air meets your face
The crowd cheers loud
Your heart starts to race
Steel on ice makes your blood flow fast
Bringing your heart to the start of a competition on glass
You are one of many
The chosen few
Who stuck to their dreams and witnessed their dreams come true

Money never mattered when the puck was dropped
When the money wasn't there
There are reasons you did not stop
Remember the games of childhood
Outside at the park
You would stay after the lights were out
Chasing shadows in the dark
Remember how you longed to stay up and watch every game?
How you knew every player by both number and name?
For many loved to watch
But none would watch the same
As the child who held the vision of
Seeing himself within the frame

Every game became a battle
Every player gave his best
But few would be chosen
For few can be blessed

So now there is no turning back
Even if it has ceased to be fun
Because millions want that chance to play
In that million
You're the one
Whose seat, blood, prayers and tears
Bring the boy to be a man
The boy who never said "I can't"
Who always said "I can".

-Stephen Hawley
