Thank your lucky stars
No matter where they are
'Cause it's possible
This is only a dream
And you might wake up someplace far away
A place where you're still young
Oh wait, this is a dream

Hesitate, always lost
Shouldn't I count the cost
Of being born not number one
I was born a trucker's son
I was born a... a trucker's son

If it were possible
I would jump in a frame
Change the family name
Oh, if it were only true

I'd wake up somewhere,
Someplace far away
Where there's forever fun
Oh wait, it's the same dream

Hesitate, always lost
Shouldn't I count the cost
Of being born not number one
I was born a trucker's son
A trucker's son

I was born a trucker's son
I was born a... a trucker's son

A trucker's son

Oh wait, this is a dream

    My InterpretationBeing Jason Martin is a believer in Jesus Christ, it comes out in a lot of his songs. I believe this one is no different.

    "Thank your lucky stars
    No matter where they are
    'Cause it's possible
    This is only a dream
    And you might wake up someplace far away
    A place where you're still young
    Oh wait, this is a dream"

    This sounds like a call to really examine the meaning of life, because everyone will die someday and "wake up" face to face with the creator of the universe (a place far away). He keeps saying throughout the song "this is a dream" due to the fact this life is but a vapor. This life will end quickly and we will wake up to the eternal reality when we die.

    "Hesitate, ALL IS lost
    Shouldn't I count the cost
    Of being born not number one?
    I was born a trucker's son
    I was born a... a trucker's son"

    I believe the chorus means that if you don't make a decision about who your God and savior is, you will by default go to hell. Therefore all is lost if you hesitate. Counting the cost of living life for others instead of you, and vice versa. Living for yourself will only send you to hell. He states how he was born a trucker's son, most likely stating how he isn't the (truck) driver of his life, but the son. More than likely a reference to Jason Martin's faith in Jesus Christ.

    "If it were possible
    I would jump in a frame
    Change the family name
    Oh, if it were only true"

    Most likely referring to the fall of Adam and Eve, and Jason Martin's desire to remove sin from the human race.

    "I'd wake up somewhere,
    Someplace far away
    Where there's forever fun
    Oh wait, it's the same dream"

    Here we find Jason going back to his point before, pointing out how there is a place where everyone longs for. A place of forever fun (heaven). When he says "it's the same dream," he is reinforcing the fact the place exists, and it isn't actually just a dream, but a reality.

    In the end, the song looks like a call to "Wake up" spiritually.
