Disney’s Song —“WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR”
Written by Leigh Harline and Ned Washington, sums up perfectly what can happen when we try The—SHHH—Secrets…

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
