Performance Dedicated to the Clients and Caregivers at Laura Baker Services

Laura Baker Services Association - Thu, 05/30/2019 - 10:28am

The song “What I Might Be” was written by Paul Krause for the Laura Baker Services Association choir in 2010 around the time of our capital campaign.

Recently the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Northfield Choir and some of the children joined together to sing this song which was video recorded with a  dedication to clients and staff of LBSA.

To view the performance: CLICK HERE

What I Might Be

When I’m alone and in my room,

I sit and dream

Of all the things I’d like to be.

Teacher, astronaut, a dancer in the dark

A chance to see what I might be.

Every time you show

Someone how to grow

Help them come to know

Their life’s a miracle, then they will

Have the hope to say

Dreams come true some day

They will find a way

I feel it happening, so I sing….

Of all the things I’d like to be outside this room

Of races run, of mountains climbed

You give me hope to be the person I can be

You open doors that free my mind

Every time you show

Someone how to grow

Help them come to know

Their life’s a miracle, then they will

Have the hope to say

Dreams come true some day

They will find a way

I feel it happening, so I sing….

And when at last I find my way into the world

I’ll think of you and what you said

You opened me and showed me all the things inside

You gave your love and set me free.

Every time you show

Someone how to grow

Help them come to know

Their life’s a miracle, then they will

Have the hope to say

Dreams come true some day

They will find a way

I feel it happening, so I sing….
