"Dreaming" as written by Karen Ann Poole, James Dearness Hogarth, Michelle Lena Mcerlaine and Terence James Martin....
Check it out, 1, 2, hey yo, hey yo
I came a long way since back in the day
From a teenager trying to make a rap in this way
Ever since I was a kid I had something to say
Rocking mics was a dream I didn't care about pay
I sacrificed late nights and going out with my friends
Just to stay home alone with my pad and my pen
Had my eyes on my prize, my mind on my goal
As I carved these rhymes out with my hear and my soul
I didn't have a CD; all I had was a tape
On the dole through my flow was my only escape
From a world where they didn't want to see my prevail
Didn't want to see me take it all
They'd rather see me fail

Its like ...
I was down and out
Struggling
Wondered how I'm gonna make it through
I got a dream (I got a dream)
Holding old (I'm gonna hold on)
I can't let go 'cause I gotta make it come true

Hey yo
I got a dream to make it big in New York
Give up the drugs and alcohol
I didn't want to distort
My vision to be living life to the full
And I wouldn't of made it if it wasn't for you
You picked me up every time that I fell
When I was going through hell you told me that I would prevail
You said I had exactly what it took to be great
That I was young and in the future would a man I would make
Its like you saw something in me I couldn't see
You said I would succeed and be anything I wanted to be
I'm 23 and I just want to be me
want to be free
want to be everything I can be
But I don't have many choices
Can't afford to be wrong
All I do is try to stay true to the words of my song
Just don't hesitate and wait too long
'cause like a dream when you wake up its gone ... its gone

I was down and out
Struggling
Wondered how I'm gonna make it through (I had no money in my pockets)
I got a dream (all I had was a pad and a pen)
Holding old (that's all I ever needed)
I can't let go 'cause I gotta make it come true

Hey yo
It was a sunny day and we were feeling high
Jamming the song underneath the baby blue sky
Thinking 'bout in the time when we were so poor
'Member the kids used to laugh at the clothes we wore
We always knew one day that things were gonna change
And from that day I was never gonna be the same
I went to sleep that night; I dreamt I touched the sky
And ever since I've been trying to keep my dream alive
So when you see this Scribe, dropping the Ill'ed rhyme
To find how I'm living mine in this day and time
I'm working 9 to 5; I'm slaving over beats
Its hard work living the dream I hardly ever sleep
I'm in the rhythm deep, Yo just trying to do my thing
Its funny when you shine and people hate to see the gleam
No matter what they say keep on doing what you do
And don't give up 'cause only you can make that dream come true

Its like...
I was down and out (I was way out)
Struggling
Wondered how I'm gonna make it through
I got a dream
Holding old
I can't let go 'cause I gotta make it come true

I was down and out ...
Wonder how ...
I got a dream ...
I won't let go 'cause I got ...

    General Commentgood lyrics, pretty straight forward, its about wanting 2 acheive dreams... i like how he says it all so literally its affective in telling the story, its good when artists strip back the lyrics to the essentials every now and then cos it makes u really listen... good song

    General CommentSCRIBE ROCKS!!! It's a pity that not a lot of New Zealand bands get international recognition... we have some really great music, you know.

    This song is about working to reach your dreams and make them come true.
