When I was a little girl, used to walk right down the dotted line.
Though with a lack of direction, the Mercator projection always made home seem so large at the time,
but you see now that I'm a little bit older now, I can realize the faults that I led.
So to finally strike my reality, I built this town inside my head.

Força da imaginação, vai lá
Al ém dos pés e do chão, chega lá,
O que a mão ainda não toca
Coração um dia alcança
Força da imaginação, vai lá

The town marked Agloe was a little bit dead,
just a patch of woods off side of the road.
So I built an empire off a glitch in the atlas
with I map you didn't have to decode.
And over the years the populace became attracted,
the imaginary city would grow.
Forgetting their lonliness, troubles, and fears,
only one road leads to Agloe so we go.

Uma cidade ao papel restrito
O manuscrito
Não circunscrito
vir a vida, ele existiu.

Embora, embora são,
uma força da imaginação.
