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

Chorus:
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

Chorus:
'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
!
Chorus:
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!

    This song is really good I love the song, but I really don't like Miley Cyrus. Before you Miley Cyrus lovers goes on swearing at me please listen. I don't like her because of the news I heard about her. (They are true I checked it up) Miley was posting up half naked pictures of herself and she had a miss carrage (sp). Also she made fun of Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez on YouTube. I would hate to have a friend like that. Even though I hate her I will not swear and yell at you. I am just stating my own opinion.

    Ladylady: Of course, people have a right to correct their mistakes. However I really don't see how she is doing that. She's not taking the chance to correct them. May I point out that her mistakes are out there in the spotlight for the world to see. Pretty soon, 16 year old girls are going think it's alright for them to put naked pictures of themselves on the internet just because Miley got away with it. Sure you can't control all actions of a teenager because we are the teenagers. You can however teach us to behave in a proper way.
    Please tell me why people ask that question? "Why are you like that?" Well because I am. I may be judgemental but I bring along proof and backup my opinions, what do you have but for the fact that you are a fan and the questions "Why are you like that?" and "Don't be so judgemental." Tell me why I shouldn't say Miley Cyrus isn't a good role model. If you have good backup maybe I'll change my mind. My opinions aren't set in stone.

    Ladylady: Of course she has a chance but she never takes it. And may I point out that her mistakes are out in the spotlight for the world to see. Pretty soon people are going to think it's fine for a 16 year old to be pulling these things. Sure the teenage years are a time of rebellion but rebellion shouldn't go so far as getting the world to notice you by pulling these stunts even if your daddy lets you.
    It's fine you think I'm judgemental.

    Keep reaching for that enormous dream no matter how difficult the road for you is. Keep believing that there are plenty of opportunities, chances and choices to choose from. But it's all in you to decide whether you want to keep on moving or not. It's not that it will never work, it's when you fail to attempt to keep on going that will stop yourself from reaching that enormous dream.

    I think that the meaning of this song is that it doesn't matter what your trying to achieve or when you achieve it but it's about how you achieve it like what you do to achieve it and that there's always going to be a challenge that your going to have to face to achieve that one thing that your striving for. Love you Miley you rock this is of practically the best song you've ever written.

    It's all about life, in life there's alway that mountain to climb you wont't make it with out a struggle it's not how fast you make it in life or if you're on the big high side it's all about your way up "THE CLIMB" what you learned during that struggle and surviving it there will be others saying, u'll never make but forget them and you keep dreaming, living and climbing.

    This song is telling us what we lose we gain again so in life some times you lose and some times you win but your not the only one their there is loads other people that lose and win them back and that is the meaning of life you lose it and then you get it back so please my message to you lot people out there is to don't get mad at anyone just because you lost it's not their fault its just the way life goes in this drama of life you might not know what is coming on your way so you can't blame people all the time so I would say to you that you climb the mountain and then you drop back off the mountain that's how life is so please don't give up.

    Miley is probably talking about don't let everyday pass you buy without any struggles. You are going to have struggles in your entire life. Up until the day that you die. You won't feel or you wont feel or experience struggles. No matter how hard your life may be, including the sturggles, just be aware that you have friends, and family there to help you along and not change the way that you are. I have a loving girlfriend and no matter what I'm going through, she's always there for me. I can call her anytime, and anywhere. Except when I'm at her house talking to her and other things. But that's not my point. I love her to death and just yesterday she said "Life's a climb, but the view is great". That is so true. I love that. She's knows what I'm going to say next because she care about me. Whenever I see her at school, we have a class together, she knows what's wrong and that's great because she's been there for me forever. Who cares what struggles you are experiencing right now, who cares, what the pain is. You will have a girlfriend/boyfriend, friends, and family ther e to support you no matter how tough the struggle is.

    This song describes life--'the climb' is the journey we take through life, and it's all about enjoying the journey, each day as we live it. Life throws out road blocks on a regular basis, and we need to be strong enough to make 'the climb'. But we also need to look for the good things during this climb.
    We need to take time to see the beauty of the 'mountain' we are climbing. A child's laughter, the smell of a beautiful flower, the sound of the wind in the trees, the sunrise (which gives new hope to every day), a warm hug from a loved one.
    Hang in there everybody--live in the moment and enjoy 'The Climb' each day, enjoy life's journey.

    Miley isn't my role model or anything but I love this song. I know she didn't write it, but I believe that she sang it beautifully. I can really realte to this song and this has inspired me to begin a new life for myself by always trying my best and realizing that nobody can be perfect. I also love this song because the next to last song of my last dance of 6th grade was this, and my chrush (who I'm practically in love with) finally asked me to dance. Everything was perf! I looked great, and all my friends were dancing around me. I still remember how he smelt, and what I felt like. I wish I could relive that night over and over. Evrytime I hear this song it brings tears to my eyes, and I remeber my best memory of the 6th grade. I may onlt be 11, but I know great songs when I hear them, and this is defenitly a good song. Love this song!, and I hope it leaves asuch a great memory for all of you as it did for me.

    and I love this song. Me and my friend saw it in theatres and we were wondering when it would play because they kept on saying "The Climb" so when it came. It came unexpectadly. This song also reminds me of my figure skating because I just got an injury doing my doubles and when I'm able to go back. I'm going back and trying again and not stoping. Letting nothing get in my way. Even if I fall. I will get up and try again!

    This song mean that you should never give up and keep climbing and believe in yourself. "There's always going to be another mountain" but you have to struggle for your dreams!. No matter how fast you get there. Just Keep Trying. Keep your Faith (like the song says). When you get to the end, you'll realize that all that you did worth. At the end you'll be happy and satisfied. Just follow your dreams, don't let it go. Is better consider the possibilities now than in 10 year later.
    I Love This song. ! It means all for me, it's my inspiration to keep trying and make my dream a reality.

    Oii 'droppedmebrain', miley cyrus isn't my favorite she may not be perfect, but bet ya she can sing 2000x better then you can, her sound is unquie, he voice is beautiful and if you hate her so much why do you go to her 'predictable' shows aye.
    Anyway, this song has so much emotion in it, I feel its me singing when I hear it. Same as everyone else, I really like my bestfriend and obvisously he doesn't know but I'm starting to get the courgage to tell him even though it could wreck our friendship, even though were friends with previledges; if you know what I mean.

    Why do you guys make such a fuss about it, she is an amazing singer, actress and just leave it alone. She has a great talent and if she read these it could "Knock her down", so back off. What if you were like her and in her position, and people were saying these things about you. I don't know her or have ever met her but I know what it feels like when people say crap about you and I bet you do to. So what the heck Listen to the golden rule " Treat others the way you want to be treated"

    Every good thing that you do in life will benefit you and others, but isn't always as easy as it looks. To me, the climb is a reminder that happiness and success for everyone comes with a tricky price that can take work, but no matter how difficult things are, you can't give up.
    (hence the climb, meaning every thing leads up to a better life for everyone, especially those in need).

    Hi guys I used to hate miley cyrus I think you might have seen my comments a little far back, but now I love her. I realized its just her personality I don't like, not her singing or acting or watev. Shes sort of a bad role model to kids but her singing is gr8 especially this song! Its so cool!
    It inspires everyone who might be going some rough patches in life, it tells them to mkeep trying and never give up. And however hard life is you gotta keep ur head held high. I cry when I hear this song its so soft then goes all pop and amazin. Please vote up because now I like miley. I would also like to apologize sincerely to Loveebabix3, because I totally trashed her 4 likin miley and I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry to all you innocent people I hurt and made sad and if miley read any of this I'm sorry 4 trashin her. :)

    They call her "Miley" because she always smiled. Her given name is. Destiny hope cyrus. A. K. A. "Smiley Miley" You should try it, it doesn't hurt. Maybe you wouldn't be so nasty. When are" your friends "going to be" in concert"? (the ones who are better singers than Miley). Ahhh that's what I thought. No record deals right? Why do people have to be so nasty. They are usually unhappy with themselves. (p. S. Musicfreak96 are you and pepper101 related?)

    Awesome! Its so powerful! Dynamic! O, I believe that everybody could relate to this song because in life, you know, we are all travelers. So then of course we have our own journey. And a mountain would not be absent. There are times we run because the steps are downwards, but we're always put into situations which we feel it so complicated, in that case, we need to strive harder. We should keep on going. We should not give up,. Its a part of living. If you gave up, you're dead! Its the climb. A very nice inspirational song.

    Since I like Miley Cyrus so much this is how I feel about this so awesome song. I thought it taught me a lesson and that is to never give up and even if you think it is really hard still don't give up. I am really happy that this is even a song. I like all of Miley 's other songs but this is my favorite song out of all the other songs in the hole entire world. From Savana Carapellatti.

    This song has so much meaning and it is so true. To me it means that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and I can relate to this song really well. I think it is also saying that all your bad experiences and bad times makes you who you are gives you a different outlook on life and if you've had a bad experience afterwards sometimes things that never bothered you before affect you so much more which is kinda going with what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

    This song is about moving on with your life, no matter what happens. People may hurt you, tragedies may turn your world upside down, but the only way to get through it is to persevere through all the pain and heartache. It will all get better eventually, and all you have to do is believe that you'll get through it. And, no matter how dismal the situation is, you'll get through it.

    Hey Falloutboyrocker, there actually is a need to call her Trashygirl cuz I'm sorta disgusted at saying her fake name. Yes miley is a fake name her real name is Destiny Hope (no idea why her parents called her that). You might think she's pretty good but she isn't actually. Plus I think its nice that you apologise to Alicecute cuz ur comment was pretty mean.
    P. S. If you wanna thumbsdown me go ahead cuz I bet you think I'm mean, and I bet you wont think Fall Out Boy is so cool when you know they tried to copy a Michael Jackson song. =P no offense of corse. Hahaha.

    Velvetropes, how can you say that Darknessrains is a big fag? She is just saying her opinion.
    I think you are the big fag here. You are darn right you can't do anything to Miley haters, so shut up!
    Her songs stink. So bad. The only good one is 7 Things and even I think its pretty harsh. Darknessrains is right. Miley's vocals are so squeaky and croaky. Ugh. How is she so famous? She is a bad role model, she is in bad relationships, she is a bad actress, she is a bad singer.
    I think I have made my point.
    So I don't have anything against you, velvetropes, but if you keep critisizing us miley haters or acting so cool and calm, I will have something against you.
    Something big.

    This is a really great song. But miley cyrus should not expose hersef in other videos. She was a young girl who was dressing like a grown up or something would. Her dad should have paid more attention to what she was doing and the way she was dressed. When I was looking at pictures of her, all I could see is pictures of herseld wearing a bra, and underwear. It even showed others I'm not saying. Even smoking. I love that girl but she was acting more like a child then a teen. Now that she is over the agae of 18, let her do whatever she wants. I love this young girl no matter what. I am 17 but I sure would never dress like her.

    Miley cyrus is just a normal teenage girl living life. Why can't you miley haters understand that? She's growing up now and if she makes choices that is bad for her, then too bad for us because there is no way that we can change her mind. I love miley cyrus. And I always will. She's a girl, I'm a girl and we will both grow up some day. Let her live her life and I will live mine. And to all of you who want to be mean to miley, talk about her, say she's a bad role model, say you hate her, or say she's gonna soon go down the wrong path, I have one thing to say to you. Kiss my butt!

    Shes so young to get the true meaning of this song. This is life. Life is always about climbing that mountain and its not easy we have a hard time and a struggle just looking at it before us, much less tackle it. I love the way the song is sang or sung. I have topped a few mountains in my life most have been mole hills but I see a few mountains here and there as I climb, I sure hope one day as I make it to the top Jesus will be there to say good job well and faithful servant, no more mountains!

    Well. Basicallly the meaning of the song is about always trying to accomplish your dreams, no matter how hard it'll be or how far you'll have to go to do it, it's about being strong and knowing that eventually you'll succeed.
    About never giving up and trying your hardest, no matter how long it takes. (:
    It's an amazing song and it doesn't matter whether she writ the song or not, to be honest, the thing that matters is how she sings it. And to be honest, she does an amazing job. (:

    Smiley13, thank you. Its good to know some one who is on my side: D
    people always express how they love Miley, well people who dislike her have a right to express that too. Not just for Miley, any other singer, Taylor, Selena or Demi. I love them girls, and if anyone disses them, well that's how they feel isn't it? I don't care if you like her or loathe her, or anyone its just fair that everyone should be able to express their opinion on people. Peaceout(yn).

    I think that these meaningful lyrics are completely spoiled by the artist. Miley Cyrus croons her way through this entire song. Even her retouched studio recording is nasal and ear-piercing; her live renditions border on nightmarish. I wish the songwriters and music producers had given this song to another artist. It could be simple but heartwarming, but thanks to a vocally untalented Miley Cyrus it is only a headache.

    Oh my? Such a potty mouth pepper101. News flash. Miley did'nt write this song neither did "her Daddy", look at "WRITER"located on the top of the page! Dah! What is so wrong with her being a role model? If you knew anything about her & her family you would know that they are all very supportive of one another,& love each other. What kind of role model would you make? Pottymouth. Take a good look and listen. You are jealous of the life she has worked hard for. You should try it!

    In life, hindrances, obstacles and failures can never be evaded and its presence will always be there no matter how hard we try to avoid it. It's a mere fact of life, people may bring you down with words but always remember that it's just a battle that must be face dauntlessly in order to overcome it. Just have faith and patience. Things can get rough but always remember once your up there, every load will be brought up from you and you will learn that it's all worth it.

    :( I dislike how much she's changed like it went from country to country/pop to almost all pop and I'm more of a country person I don't know y but I guess its in my blood because I have the lead singer of the road hammers in my family as a cousin. And do think how many people want to b her and can't like she was less famous when she was country but I personally belive she was better country. I don't get how so many people wan't to be her?

    I like this song out of all the hannah/miley songs becuase it explains that sonetimes you have to try hard enough to push ur self to suceed in live and you can't take everything for granite. =) I love you miley ur so awsome and I love all ur songs exspecially goodbye that's songs kinda explains my life becuase when I try to get a guy we get together then it all falls apart but my life is also like the climb. My whole life I've wanted to be on the stage and sing my heart out and show my talent to the world instead of trying to play the guitar and learning news song but for now that what I'm gonna start with lol love yall bye.

    I don't really "hate" Miley. But I don't like her either. She has her good points and bad. One of her bad points are being a bad role model to little kids. She also has good points though, such as this song. This song is very top notch, I just love the lyrics and I can really relate to it because some "situations" I went through during school(not like anyone cares xd). The point is no one should be saying their opinion in an outrageously harsh manor. It called being rude, most people might say I'm an idiot after I post this: P.
    Plus, I'm trying to type this as fast as I can so that my sister won't see because she is a "Miley Hater" and last time I said one thing nice about Miley, my sister didn't talk to me for a week. Oh, and by the way everyone.
    And all fans of Miley, you guys are fans and Miley-as you know- is a superstar. Superstars get tons of criticism everywhere! So some of these comments are just a examples. If it doesn't bother Miley, it shouldn't bother you.
    Just so we are clear I don't like her either, because I don't like a person unless I know that person and they know me. Very well. And I don't think I'm meeting Miley Cyrus anytime soon. Probably never. Xp.

    Life's a climb. It's doesn't depend on what is your goal or aim or how quickly you accomplish it. The point of the climb of life is how you live it. It's the experience you have while living it. "Ain't about how fast I get there, ain't about what's waiting on the other side... it's the climb."
    This is probably Miley's best song. I'm not really a fan of Miley. She sure can be shitty sometimes but I don't dislike her. She doesn't have the best voice but it's cool, she can sing. =) This song is really fit to Miley's voice. And her movie was fun and kinda sad. Just watched it now. ;) She usually is bad in acting in her show, but in the movie she did okay. =)

    I absolutely love this song, when I saw the movie on this scene it gave me chills. It means that no matter what happens, you have to keep trying to make your dreams come true, it's like a metaphor 'Climb' means 'Life' you have to keep moving, 'cuz all the things that happen to you, are part of who you are, you have to believe in yourself most of all.

    I thing that's a cool song. I like miley because she can rock and is cool. All the people think that wen you like miley you like hannah montana too. But that is not rights. Because hannah montana has differents songs and miley cyrus too. Hannah montana is just a moovie for small kids but miley cyrus is a real person with feelings and style. I personally like miley cyrus the real peprson with cool songs and style.

    I never liked Miley Cyrus But this song is great, the words are true, like is a uphill battle even if you get knocked down get right back up an try again, Look are what she has been through, Yea she sent pictures to her Boyfriend in her own privacy, Her business no one elses leave her alone, How would you like it if people talked about your life everyday, You wouldn't, So stop talking about her's. Miley Girl this song rocked out I am buying this Cd when it come's out along with the movie. Keep ur head up and Stay strong just like ur song say's. Keep Faith.

    Omg to be totally honest I'm not a miley fan not for any big reason but this song is soo good, I think shes 16 or something and darn she is so talented. This song is about reaching for your dream and follwing it no matter who may try to stop you or the number of mountains you have to go over.
    Things can push you back down and you may have to start all over again but as miley says keep your faith. Believe. And you will reach it, its a slow process but stay strong and keep going. This song is an inspiration, the lyrics are great, it cheers me up so I put it on repeat. Bye guys .

    Omg 'Darkness Rains" its sad that all you can do is put down well think that you are putting down the little girls love for miley but don't get me wrong yeah the pics and everything was not cool but everybody makes mistakes and you did to so get over it she is a good singer great actor and good inspriation to all kids any age and she didn't get the acting bussiness just because her dad she got it because she got their attention it took her 10 tries just to start the acting bussiness with disney and worked on many other tv shows before than and her bf seriously she is 16 he is 21 yeah big age diff but I think she is mature enough to make the right choices so get over your miley/hannah hating self don't try and make her look like she is a horrible role model.

    Hey people stop being brainwashed. I see all you Miley-Obsessors are still losers. You are voting me thumbsdown. See if I care. Do I care?
    No.
    So you losers, forget about this cow called Miley Cyrus and get a life, okay? I'm saying this because I care. Oh yeah, I actually don't care if you idiots waste your life listening to crappy junk by a crappy so-called singer. Did any of you notice that she sucks?
    No.
    And I don't give a damn if you liked my comment or not, because I'm an independent person with a brain, a life, and a better taste in music than you. You Miley-Obsessors, however, are brainless, tone-deaf frogs, okay? Yeah, vote me down, but before you do, get a load of this.
    You all suck as much as the pig named Miley cyrus.

    Darknessrains just a big fag, everybody has different tastes of music. I mean, what can you do when people just loves Miley so much? You can't stop them right? If she was a horrible vocalist, why'd she be so famous and has so many fans? You can't blame the fans either. That's just it, she has loads of fans and you can't deny this fact. And obviously she must be given some credit for singing this song, I mean, she sang it right?
    So please get a life and if you're a Miley hater or whatever, I can' do anything, but just to tell you, her songs are great and no point critisising her here, you can't get every Miley fan to hate her, can you?
    Just get over it, Miley's great vocalist and the lyrics of this song's meaningful.
