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 every day
We settle for safe
And lose ourselves along the way

But if we don't ream big
What's the use in dreaming
If you don't have faith
there's nothing worth believing
It takes wild hope
To make the stars worth reaching for
So reach out for something more

Took a while to perfect a plan
For me to finally understand
That it's not me
Faith is something you can't see
I loose the reins and let them go
I broke the chains of 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

But if we don't dream big
What's the use in dreaming
If you don't have faith
There's nothing worth believing
It takes wild 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

Than you could ever 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

If we don't dream big
What's the use in dreaming
If you don't have faith
There's nothing worth believing
It takes wild 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
