Us! Celebrating the Power of Friendship

You jump? I'll fly.
I fall? You'll catch me.
Is there a place for dreaming where teddy bears are kings? Where friends are the best rulers of time and simple things?
Is there a place for hiding from the worries of the day? To never have to question if I'm walking the right way?
Is there a place of wonder where dreams are held so high? That could I reach further my heart would touch the sky?
There is a place where dreams are born and thrive in safety, fair. Where awe's alive in every breath ... our friendship takes us there.
Well, there you are ...
... One day when I wasn't looking you became my friend.
And there you go flying another rainbow show. It's been one of the best surprises of my life ... there you were!
When I least suspected I turned around and found a friend.
Stand often in the company of dreamers ...
They tickle your common sense and believe you can achieve things which appear impossible.
