Miley Cyrus – The Climb lyrics

I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there's a voice inside my head saying
"You'll never reach it"

Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking

But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb

The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I'm not breaking

I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going

And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

'Cause there's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah
There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Somebody's gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah!

Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It's all about, it's all about the climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa

    You misunderstand me. I do not hate Miley Cyrus. Not in any way. I am disgusted with her quick rise to fame.
    As I said, a girl her age should not be exposed to that much attention. I don't care who you are. Everyone makes mistakes, yes, but most of them are not in the spotlight. She needs to realize just how many girls look up to her. She doesn't seem to realize it.
    I know a girl who wants to be just like Miley Cyrus grows up. It saddens me, honestly.
    "she is a good singer great actor and good inspriation to all kids any age" This statement is completely false. She cannot act. The only person she plays is herself and she even messes that out. She is not a good singer, ask any critic. And as for being an inspiration. Not even close.
    Maybe the age difference isn't that big. But if he actually liked her, he would wait two years, till she's 18. Think about it. It's like a 13-year-old dating an 18-year-old. Wait till she's 18. It's not even that bothers me. It's the fact that he lives with her family.
    But I don't hate her. Not at all. I feel bad for her. Someday she's going to look back and regret a lot of what she has done. Or maybe she'll never grow up and never regret any of it, which quite honestly, is even sadder.
    ((And seriously, please, learn to use punctuation.))

    3 cheers for mutt244, who is apparently the only person on here who knows what they're talking about.
    I must admit, that I do like the lyrics to this song. The lyrics aren't bad. Her voice, however, is complete crap. It's a whiny, annoying voice that makes my head hurt every time.
    She only is with Disney because of her father. She has no talent. She isn't worthy of the honor to be a role model to young girls. She has proved this time and time again. Vanity Fair, Radiohead, and don't forget the 21-year-old underwear model whom she is currently dating, and who lives in their house.
    Cyrus pisses me off. She has no talent and she's not even a good role model. No girl her age should have that much attention that young. Turns them into spoiled little brats. Britney Spears, Lindsey Lohan, Olson twins. When Cyrus's career crashes and burns I'm going to be laughing, because I said it from the beginning. Yes. I know everyone is going to give this a thumbs-down. But think about it, do you want young girls following Miley's example. I certainly don't. I'd rather they look up to people like Taylor Swift or some of those other nice singers that have twice the maturity, not to mention talent, that Cyrus does.

    Okay, can people please do me a favor? Stop saying things like "she needs to write more songs like this", "she's expressing her feelings", "she's saying...-insert opinion here-"
    She isn't saying anything, she isn't expressing anything, she didn't write this song.
    Give the song writers some credit. They wrote an amazing song with amazing lyrics. It's a pity such horrible vocals had the honor of singing it.
    But please, stop giving Cyrus credit for the lyrics of this song when she had nothing to do with them.
    Thank you.

    How the hell is she a great role model? I know all you Mi-fans are going to jump on me, but come on! She's only famous cause her daddy knows people at Disney and he was once famous himself. She's ruining her reputation with scandals like the naked pictures. She's supposed to be Disney, for children. She's not supposed to be a playboy bunny. She's a minor going out with an adult. She's just doing this for the attention and I bet you anything she gets paid to do all these stupid stunts. She probably paid song writers to write this so it can make her look good. So it can outweigh the scandals and save her from another. That is just stupid. Think about it. Would anyone want their children to do this? Would you want your child to make these mistakes in front of the whole world? Would you want them to degrade themselves and live in regret? Miley Cyrus is definitely not a good role model.

    She isn't a very good singer and clearly not a very good song writer as she gets 'daddy' to write most of them if not all. She is a bad role model for kids children about 7 years old shouldnt be looking to someone who takes pictures of themselves like a skanky prostitute its stupid that people think she is amazing some of my best friends are much better singers than her and totalyy mor original. She should stick to being a nobody like she was to start with. She must be quiet bratty I mean she has 3 names not one why does the girl think shes so damn special coz I sure as hell don't!
