Dream Big by David Cook

This is my favorite new song from American Idol Season 7. It was written by Emily Shackleton and performed by David Cook during the American Idol Season 7 Grand Finale. Here’s the lyrics:

When I was a little boy.
I swore that I would change the world when I grew up.
Nothing else would be enough.

I see it everyday.
We settled for safe.
And lose ourselves along the way.

But if you don’t dream big,
What’s the use of dreaming?
If you don’t have faith,
There’s nothing worth believing.
It takes one look
To make the stars worth reaching for.
So reach out for something more.

It took a well perfected plan
For me to finally understand
That it’s not me.
Faith is something you can’t see.

I wiped my tears away.
Now its time for a change.
No I can’t waste another day.

‘Cause if you don’t dream big,
What’s the use of dreaming?
If you don’t have faith
There’s nothing worth believing.
It takes one look
To make the stars worth reaching for.

‘Cause if you don’t have faith,
What’s the use of dreaming?
If you don’t have faith
There’s nothing worth believing.
It takes one look.
To make the stars worth reaching for.
So reach out for something more.
