[Verse 1]
This is the beginning,
Of a new lease on life.
This freedom, this passion,
Is how we survive.
Only got one life, one chance
To show what I got,
And nothing will ever take this from me.
You can never take this from me!

[Chorus]
Whatever happened to just wanting to live your dream,
When no one cared about the cover of a magazine?
This is the price I pay for the life I’ve made.
But I’m always finding a way to stand up,
Can’t you hear the sound of
A thousand screaming voices,
Eager to watch you succeed?
Give them something real to believe.

[Verse 2]
You’ll try everything,
To sell your soul for a quick buck,
So look at it this way,
Tried to control my life,
But I’ve got something to say.
Your words, they make me sick,
Mind-blown by all the constant bullshit.
Go back to your pathetic life and let me be!

[Chorus]
Whatever happened to just wanting to live your dream,
When no one cared about the cover of a magazine?
This is the price I pay for the life I’ve made.
But I’m always finding a way to stand up,
Can’t you hear the sound of
A thousand screaming voices,
Eager to watch you succeed?
Give them something real to believe.

[Hook]
This is a song for the times I’ve failed,
This is a song for the times I got it right.
Maybe I’m just a boy with a dream,
But my dreams are becoming a reality.
This is a song for the times you’ve failed,
This is a song for the times you got it right.
Maybe you’re just someone with a dream,
But your dreams are so close you just have to believe it.

[Bridge]
Stand up, can’t you hear the sound of a thousand screaming voices?

[Chorus]
Whatever happened to just wanting to live your dream,
When no one cared about the cover of a magazine?
This is the price I pay for the life I’ve made.
But I’m always finding a way to stand up,
Can’t you hear the sound of
A thousand screaming voices,
Eager to watch you succeed?
Give them something real to believe.
