Lyrics & music by Cheryl B. Engelhardt & Toby Lightman (BMI). Vocal production: J Chris Griffin

lyrics

I’d be riding that wave but the ocean’s too loud
I carry that weight say don’t wait on me
you say “luck is gonna find you, wait and see”

I still hear you gently saying

I know that you’re scared but it’s all right
I promise that the world won’t bite
Life is what you make it look around
and be the one breaking ground
dreamer’s didn’t build this town
no dreamer’s didn’t build this town

You wake up in the morning rise and shine
with your tired hands and eyes like mine
You got a strength like I’ve never seen
Gave up wishing when you turned eighteen

I can hear you softly saying

For so long I wasn’t listening but I hear you now
It’s time to take all my dreams and all the could be’s and give them life
I owe it to you for pushing aside your dreams to make room for mine

I know that you’re scared but it’s all right
I promise that the world won’t bite
Life is what you make it look around
and be the one breaking ground
dreamer’s didn’t build this town
no dreamer’s didn’t build this town
