lyrics:

When I was a little girl
I swore that I would change the world
When I grew up
Nothing else would be enough

Back then it all seemed black and white
But these days I just can’t seem to find
The child in me, who always believed

I see it everyday
We settle for safe
And lose ourselves along the way

But if you don’t dream big what’s the use in dreaming
If you don’t have faith there’s nothing worth believing
It takes one hope to make the stars worth reaching for
So reach out for something more

Took a well perfected plan
For me to finally understand
That it’s not me
Faith is something I can see

I loose the reins and let em go
I broke the chains I fear
That had their hold on me too long
When all I felt was wrong

I’ve wiped my tears away
Now it’s time for a change
No I can’t waste another day

Cuz if you don’t dream big what’s the use in dreaming
If you don’t have faith there’s nothing worth believing
It takes one hope to make the stars worth reaching for

Yeah

So close your eyes and tell me what you see
Between what’s real and make believe
Here’s the path we’ve all been searching for
So reach out for something more

Than you ever could imagine then move
Don’t wait for it to happen
Life’s too short for not taking chances
The stars aren’t as far as they seem

But if you don’t dream big what’s the use in dreaming
If you don’t have faith there’s nothing worth believing
It takes one hope to make the stars worth reaching for

So close your eyes and tell me what you see
Between what’s real and make believe
Here’s the path we’ve all been searching for
So reach out for something more
For something more
So reach out for something more
