I'm reachin' for my dreams
And you're so quick to say what I can't do
You criticize my actions
But I don't see you standin' in my shoes


I'm goin' the wrong way, I'm doin' the wrong things
Every word just gives me fuel
So come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on


And tell me no
And I'll show you I can
And tell me no
And I'll dig my feet right in


And tell me no
Just tell me that I can't win
So come on, I'm sure I'll prove you wrong
Go on and go
Tell me no


For every step I take
You're right there trying to block my next move
And if you're making me feel bad
Then tell me then do you feel good


I'm just human, all I'm doin'
Is what my heart tells me I should
So come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on


And tell me no
And I'll show you I can
And tell me no
And I'll dig my feet right in


And tell me no
Just tell me that I can't win
So come on, I'm sure I'll prove you wrong
Go on and go
Tell me no


No, no, no, no, no, no, no
It motivates me more and more
And I think it's time they know
Give them something to look for
And I can't wait for the day
I can rub things in your face
I ain't gon' stop till I'm done
I'll reach the top, I'm number one
For every time you try and tell me no
I ain't listening, keep on keeping on


Tell me no
And I'll show you I can
And tell me no
And I'll dig my feet right in


Tell me no
Just tell me that I can't win
So come on, I'm sure I'll prove you wrong
Go on and go
Tell me no


Tell me no
And I'll show you I can
Tell me no
And I'll dig my feet right in


Tell me no
Just tell me that I can't win
So come on, I'm sure I'll prove you wrong
Go on and go
Tell me no


So come on, I'm sure I'll prove you wrong
Go on and go
Tell me no
