Hold On To Your Dream

from by Oakes & Smith



When no one is listening
Although you shout
And no one can understand
A single thing that comes out of your mouth

When no one can see you
For what you are
And no one has the vision
To see what you’re trying to become

They will try to pull it all to pieces
Make you think you're crazy
Don’t go down so easy
You know there’s a reason

To hold on to your dream
Hold it up like a lamplight
Through the pain of this hard-earned birth
Through this rock-hardened earth

You know you're on to something
Something they will not see
But it's your reason for being here
It's your reason to be
So, dreamer, hold on to your dream

They say you'll never get to
What you’ve already found
And everyone will tell you
That you got to get your feet on the ground

But there's a missing insight
Making people go blind
O, they won't slow down and turn around
And look at what they are leaving behind
