    I wanted to make a song which helps people go for their dreams. Sometimes the dream seems bigger than what you think you are capable of. I think you should set your goals as high as possible and even if you don't make it all the way you can be surprised of what you are capable of.

    I would like to thank the following people

    Titus Maclaren

    Thanks for the time, energy, skills and passion for this song. Without you this song would not be what it is. Thanks for believing in the lyrics and message of the song even when times got tough in the filming and song recording.

    Thank you for your support over the last few years. It means a lot to have you on my team. Your film skills and friendship on the shoots has made each video awesome and also enjoyable to make.

    Lyrics

    Chorus

    If you reach for the stars
    And you bring back the moon
    Then you’re almost there
    Then you’re almost there
    So don’t give up

    Verse 1

    Let’s pretend that the world is great
    And everybody gets along and there is no hate
    And if you make a mistake you get a clean slate
    Every child is born with an awesome fate
    Now lets pretend we can recreate
    The world back into it’s original state
    No wars, no fears, nobodies irate
    And kids aren’t forced to work when they just turned eight
    Oh yeah, forget child poverty
    Children living lives to the contrary
    Kids are living free, they’re standing up tall
    Big smiles on their faces just to top it all off
    And let’s pretend that this stories true
    That what I just said, we can surely do
    If we reach for the stars but don’t get through
    We’re still changing a life if we’re touchin the moon

    Chorus

    Verse 2

    Okay, let’s pretend that you’ve got this dream
    And everybody tells you it’s too extreme
    They pull you down, and make you want a scream
    But instead you focus like a laser beam
    Now let’s pretend that you just can’t fail
    Your success will be measured on the Richter scale
    You think huge like a hump back whale
    So your dream is as certain as the daily mail
    Now let’s pretend that you reached your goal
    And you think about doing something bigger and bold
    Not everything you do is going to turn to gold
    But a worthy goal is worth your heart and soul
    Remember Rome wasn’t built in a day
    And just say you only make it halfway
    But the change you make just might save the day
    For someone in need so don’t back away

    Chorus

    Breakdown

    Don’t give up, never give up
    Don’t back up, never back up, never, never back up
    You gotta tear it up, you gotta burn it up now
    Did you know if you reach for the stars you just might touch the planet mars

    Chorus

    About Reach for the Stars

    I have been presenting and performing for school students across Australia over the last year on my "Rise Up and Make a Difference" tour. My main message is to see your youth as an advantage. See it as a strength and make a difference while you are young.

    Recently, I have finished each presentation with this song "Reach for the Stars." It helps the students realise that although their dreams may seem too big to achieve at this age, they should try anyway, because even if they only make it half way, they are still making a difference.

    I hope you all enjoy the song and the message. Show less
