About the song

Written in the context of a conversation where hopes, visions and dreams are acknowledged, as is the journey of challenges and hard work ahead. The encouragement given is that every mistake is only a chance to climb higher, and not to give up because the end is in sight.

We picture the world

As an endless well

Of hope, visions and dreams

For each day you wake

Both your eyes open

As one winning team

 

Don’t take that slip as another mistake

It’s a chance to climb higher than this

 

CHORUS

Now take away the limits

Cast aside the lines

Just run as fast as you can

The more that you dream

The nearer it seems

And the further you will get

Don’t stop believing

I know you’ve been trying

Your hard work goes somewhere

So don’t give up now

You’re almost there

It’s never the end

Only another mountain to climb

You’ve got all that you need

And the only thing left is to

Reach for the finish line

 

Just leap for the end now

Go on my friend

The rest of the road is yours

 

CHORUS

Now take away the limits

Cast aside the lines

Just run as fast as you can

The more that you dream

The nearer it seems

And the further you will get

Don’t stop believing

I know you’ve been trying

Your hard work goes somewhere

So don’t give up now

You’re almost there
