When I was a little boy
I swore that I would change the world when I grew up
Nothing else would be enough

I see it everyday
We settled for safe
And lose ourselves along the way

'Coz if you don't dream big what's the use of dreaming
If you don't have faith there's nothing worth believing
It takes one look to make the stars worth reaching for
So reach out for something more

Took a well perfected plan
For me to finally understand
But it's not me
Faith is something I can see

I've wiped my tears away now it's time for a change
No I can't waste another day

'Coz if you don't dream big what's the use of dreaming
If you don't have faith there's nothing worth believing
It takes one look to make the stars worth reaching for

'Coz if you don't dream big what's the use of dreaming
If you don't have faith there's nothing worth believing
It takes one look to make the stars worth reaching for
So reach out for something more

    Make your goals big. No one dreams about little insignificant things rather it is human nature to hope for the best. Dream big and change the world.

    I love this song it inspire`s people to go after what they believe in and i think that David Cook did that he made his biggest dream come true and he fought for it.

    he deserved more then anyone.
    Rock on DAVID COOK luv ya

    it may not be the winning song and DA may have chosen the better song that night (and sang it beautifully, too) but DC made this one into something. he said it right that there's no sense in dreaming if you'll settle for mediocre things. so if you dream, dream big and work hard for it...

    hey, you should check out "silver" of DC. it's sad.

    David Cook sang this so well! I am so glad he won, even though I was rooting for David Archuleta. Best wishes to both of them.
