Dream Big 75

A new day has dawned, and I awake to the alarm going off by the bed

I reach over to smack it, as the cat then attacks it, and I'm not free of the noise in my head

Soft purring lulls me back to sleep, to dream of a future I wish I could see

But the thoughts in my mind won't leave me be

I cannot admit defeat, I've been at this too long

To fight for what I want, but I'm not that strong

Will it all be worth it? I know I must try

For what I believe in, it's do or die

I can't live without it, and it's not what it seems

And I have nothing left, only my dreams

The courtship of the day never leads me to greatness, and I'm trying my best

It's a nine to five struggle, and I never rest

If only I could get my chance, and make my way

My heart wouldn't suffer, and my head wouldn't say...

I can't keep living like I've never lived

I can't keep hoping, and life never gives

I can't go on like this anymore

I just want the keys to unlock this door

The clock on the wall keeps ticking away, and staring at it won't make it fly by

The break room is filled with lost dreams of others who never tried

If only the day would move along faster

If only I had the power I'd be a time master

The long day has ended, and the wait is over, five o'clock is here and I'm heading home

I keep telling myself that I won't be back, and I'd rather go to Europe to roam

Where my heart wants adventure to live life on my own

And finally escape an existence where I feel alone

I don't want to live like I've never lived

I don't want to hope, and life never gives

I don't want to go on like this anymore

I just want the keys to unlock this door

My world sometimes feels like it's crashing down

I try to wake up from the nightmare that keeps me bound

If only I could face my fears

If only I could stop these tears

I cannot admit defeat I've been at this too long

To fight for what I want, but I'm not that strong

Will it all be worth it? I know I must try

For what I believe in, it's do or die

I can't live without it, but it's not what it seems

And I have nothing left, but only my dreams

The past holds no ties, but it tells us the truth

Those painful lessons of our youth

Now it's up to us to change who we are

And move on if we want to go far

Now that my story has come to an end

I'll share this advice to you my friend

It may only seem like you're buried alive

But you do what you must to survive

I cannot admit defeat, I've been at this too long

To fight for what I want, but I'm not that strong

Will it all be worth it? I know I must try

For what I believe in, it's do or die

I can't live without it, but it's not what it seems

And I have nothing left, but only my dreams

No one can take away the ache in your heart

Protect what is yours to never part

Hold on to hope and believe

And know that someday you will achieve

So hold on to life before it passes on

Live life to the fullest and be strong

If life has you buried then reach up and dig

And never forget to always dream big
