I always fallow that shining star, as I reach out for my dream,
But should it ever reach my grasp, then my life will end mid stream.
Dreams are meant to be just that, something out of reach.
If you can ever achieve your dream, then a true dream I must preach.

They say you must shoot for the stars, but at which one do you take your aim?
I say aim for the very next one, so your dream is just a step away.
As you step across the stars, in search of better dreams to tame,
Just think of all the things you’ll see, On your journey across the Milky Way.

Finding time is tough, when you work two jobs, just trying to make ends meet,
But somehow I do it, I find time to stop, and take in all these things.
At first it’s tough, to figure it out, but succeed and you’ll have a treat.
Soon enough, as you search for your star, you’ll see what your journey brings.

    Maybe, yeah, I think you’re right, but argument-wise, you’ve won.
