If Everyone's Dreams Fell From the Sky

Why can't dreams come true the minute you want them to?

Oh, I remember why.

It’s because if everyone’s dreams fell from the sky,
there wouldn’t be a reason why.

There wouldn’t be a reason for people to work hard.
There wouldn’t be a purpose for you to make your mark.

The magic of dreams would be ruined and dead.
The greatness of it all would go to your head.

And dreams wouldn’t exist like they do today.
The Creator behind them would surely feel betrayed.

Because, the purpose of dreams was for you to make them true,
by working hard, with all your might, and doing what you do.

And the people destined with this power
are the ones who work every hour.
The ones who work every hour
gain this special power;
to make their dreams come true and be among the only few
who have this will and this ability to inspire you.

I want to be one of those few.
I want to be able to inspire you.

And I remember why.

It’s because if everyone’s dreams fell from the sky,
there wouldn’t be a reason why.
