"The Climb" as written by and Jon Mabe Jessi Alexander....
I can almost see it
That dream Im dreamin, but
Theres a voice inside my head sayin
Youll never reach it
Every step Im taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking

But I gotta keep tryin
Gotta keep my head held high

Theres always gonna be another mountain
Im always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
That sometimes Im gonna have to lose
Aint about how fast I get there
Aint about whats waitin on the other side
Its a climb

The struggles Im facin
The chances Im takin
Sometimes might knock me down, but
No, Im not breaking
And I may not know it
But these are the moments that
Im gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going

And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

Theres always gonna be another mountain
Im always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
That sometimes Im gonna have to lose
Aint about how fast I get there
Aint about what's waitin on the other side
Its a climb
Yeah

Theres always gonna be another mountain
Im always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
That sometimes Im gonna have to lose
Aint about how fast I get there
Aint about what's waitin on the other side
Its a climb
Yeah yeah

Keep on movin
Keep climbin
Keep the faith, baby
Its all about, its all about the climb
Keep the faith
Keep your faith
Whoa, whoa

    General Commentill admit, im not a huge fan of the song, but i love the MEANING behind it. too many people today have mediocre jobs and things like that because they are afriad to fail, so they dont try. this song is trying to combat it. its saying how there will ALWAYS be battles in life. ya win some ya lose some. but ultimately, if you fight those battles you will be in a better place and feel good about yourself.
