Closer to my dreams
It's coming over me

I'm getting higher
Closer to my dreams
I'm getting higher, and higher
Feel it in my sleep
Sometimes it feels like I'll never go pass here
Sometimes it feel like I'm stock forever, ever

But I'm going higher
Closer to my dreams
I'm Going higher and higher
I can almost reach

Sometimes you just have to let it go
Leaving all my fears to burn and die
Push the all away so I can move on
Closer to my dreams

Feel it all over my being
In my being
Close your eyes and seek what you believe

I'm moving higher
I'm going higher and higher
Closer to my dreams
Higher and higher

I'm moving upward and onward and beyond all that I could see
Stretching out my arms so I can reach
I'm so close
It's like I can just reach

I can feel my dreams
Closer to my dreams
I'm moving closer to my dreams
Sometimes it feel like you'll never grow and change
But you never choose to walk away

    General CommentTo me this is about striving to reach your goals... moving on, letting all the issues and drama from the past go, and just going after what you wish for. The last two lines mean the most to me, because in life it does feel sometimes as if things are never going to change... but when you want something bad enough, then you'd never choose to walk away from it... The important thing is that you let go of the weight of the past and fly free

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs of all time. It's like daydreaming in a song. I love the lyrics, the melody, everything about it. When I listen to this and close my eyes it's like floating through happiness. There's a sense of calm elation. I love the song and how it makes me feel.
