Never Too Old to Dream?

February 8, 2015 § Leave a comment

While checking in this morning on Facebook, I came across a post from a family member who was having a rough day. The job was taking it out of her, as she put it, “draining the life” out of her.

Work is a necessary part of life – some might say a necessary evil. However, it should never rule ones life or keep one from pursuing one’s goals or dreams.

After reading her post and some of the comments, I came up with this song. Thanks to Myscha for the inspiration.

Dream Big

She dragged herself home from another shift down at the mall
60 hours a week without that much to show
She could not remember the last time she laughed out loud
Felt that she’d hit bottom with no place to go

Looked at her reflection in the mirror
All at once, things became crystal clear
Swore to herself that come tomorrow
She would start living without fear

Work will make you old if you let it
Best thing you can do is let it go and just forget it
Tomorrow brings another chance to make a brand new start
So dream big –
And listen to your heart

He had put in 20 years with 20 more to go
All to get that gold watch at the very end
Felt like he was going through the motions day to day
No chance for redemption up around the bend

He looked at the stranger staring back at him
And wondered how he ever got so old
Knew inside that he would have to make a change
To reclaim the soul that he had sold

Work will make you old if you let it
Best thing you can do is let it go and just forget it
Tomorrow brings another chance to make a brand new start
So dream big –
And listen to your heart

(instrumental:)

Dreams are the fire that burns inside us
Get us through each day and help to guide us
They are the wings that help each of us to fly
Once the dreams stop you begin to die

Work will make you old if you let it
Best thing you can do is let it go and just forget it
Tomorrow brings another chance to make a brand new start
So dream big –
And listen to your heart
