Way back on the radio dial
The fire got lit inside a bright eyed child
Every note just wrapped around his soul
From steel guitars to Memphis all the way to rock and roll

Oh I can hear 'em playin
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
Oh I can hear 'em singing
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

Downtown is where I used to wander
Old enough to get there but too young to get inside
So I would stand out on the sidewalk
Listen to the music playin every Friday night

Oh I can hear 'em playin
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
Oh I can hear 'em singing
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

Some dreams stay with you forever
Drag you around and bring you back to where you were
Some dreams keep on getting better
Gotta keep believing if you wanna know for sure

Oh I can hear 'em playin
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
Oh I can hear 'em singing
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

Oh I can hear 'em playin
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
Oh I can hear 'em singing
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

Keep on dreaming

Don't let it break your heart

    Fulfilling your destiny, even if it's painful and you go down a lot of wrong roads or meet the wrong people along they way and life discourages you and somehow still realizing it'll all be worth it and you have no other choice but to find your correct path to your destiny

    To me, "even if it breaks your heart" means that you should keep following your dreams and doing what you want to in life even if its get hard, don't let anything stop you.

    No matter the consequences, no matter the possibility of failure, no matter the discouragement that you may face, you can always "hear 'em playing" as you become closer to your dream that you strive for. Walls are put up to test whether you are motivated enough to tear them down.

    This song means to me that even though in life you get stopped or help up even walls put up in your way you have to keep on walking knock the walls down if you put your heart to it you can do it
