I've chased after rainbows, I've captured one or two
I've reached for the stars, I've even held a few
I've walked that lonesome valley, topped the mountains, soared the sky
I have laughed and I have cried, but I have always tried

I've always been a dreamer
And dreams are special things
Dreams are of no value if they're not equipped with wings
So secure yourself for climbing
Make ready for the flight
Don't let your chance go by, you'll make it if you try

So, try to be the first one up the mountain
And try to be the first to touch the sky
And try to be the one to make a difference
Try to put your fear and doubt aside
And try to make the most of every moment
'Cause if you never try you never will
So, try each day to try a little harder
And if you fall, get up and try again

Nothing is impossible if you can just believe
Don't live your life in shackles when faith can be the key
The winner's one that keeps determination in his eyes
Who's not afraid to fly and not afraid to try

So, try to be the first one up the mountain
And try to be the first to touch the sky
And try to count your blessings and keep counting
And try to soar where only eagles fly
And if you fail at first, just keep on trying
For you are not a failure in God's eyes
The first step is the one that's always hardest
But you won't amount to much if you don't try
So, spread your wings and let the magic happen
'Cause you'll never really know if you don't try

You gotta try
Come give it a try
You have to try

Oh, I know it ain't easy, who ever said it was?
Life is hard, same as it ever was
You have to try
When you think you can't do it, just try a little harder
Just dig a little deeper and go a little farther but try
You have to try

Whatever it is, you're gonna get through it
Let the spirit lead you, I know you can do it
Just try, just give it a try
Whenever you think you ain't gonna make it
Put a smile on your face, suck it up and fake it for awhile
At least you know you tried
Don't think I don't suffer, I know what I'm saying
When I get to that place, I start praying and I try
Lord knows I try if I try
