"Reach" as written by Gloria M. Estefan and Diane Eve Warren....
Take a step in the right direction. Move ahead and never look
back. Reach is a song intended to encourage an audience that has lived a life void of grace and hope.

Can you feel it comin' down over your body?
Let the joy so holy (sight and dreams) whisper the promise.
One million crash tries. [You] spread your wings but you can't fly.
No one cares cause they all sit back and stare. The whole world applauds you.

Who will look into time when history cries?

I'm reachin' higher, heaven's gates are open wide... touch the sky.
It may take some time to forgive my mind. So tell me... when in this life?

Hear the voice call? You take a step and then you take a fall.
Water valleys guard the righteous on dry ground, following the white cloud.
So ride the boat up. I'm a worldwide flash flood.
My disbelief only causes me pain and grief. This was my last shot, my very last try.

Who will look into time when history cries?

I'm reachin' higher, heaven's gates are open wide... touch the sky.
It may take some time to forgive my mind so tell me... when in this life?

We run so far just to catch each other.
You reach so far, we've got to runaway.
Do you believe?

I'm reachin' higher, heaven's gates are open wide... touch the sky.
