You've walked a thousand miles, got a billion more to go

Trying to keep up while letting all those tears flow

Feeling so tired and fatigued you can't take it in anymore

But you can't give up for you're sure you can soar

No shortcuts taken, only long painful roads to choose from

For those roads are the ones that shape who you become

Taking shortcuts means taking the easy road there

But going down sooner leaving you with situations you can't bear

Look up to the skies and you will see the stars above,

All the strength provided by your family and friends' unending love

Never leaving your side unlike all those who pass by

Will be there for you when you smile and when you cry

Keep holding on to what you've dreamed of all this time

Never give up, your heart will be free and sublime

If you keep going on with fiery determination in your eyes

Then you'll see your dreams coming true and you yourself will fly.
