lyrics

I used to dream I was an astronaut
Standing on the face of the moon.
But I've been reading about space a lot
And starting to revise my tune.
Cause I could do something never done before.
Yeah, I could build a city on Mars.
Or maybe I could even help design the ship
That will take us on a journey to the stars.
Yeah, I could be reaching for the stars!

Dream big!
The more you read
Dream big!
The more you succeed
Dream big!
Jump in and dig
Don't dream a little dream, dream big!

I used to dream I was a rock n roll star
With everybody cheering for me.
But I've been reading about the way things are
And thinking about the troubles I see.
I could do something with the songs I sing
Like putting a smile on a face.
And maybe if I reach enough hearts and minds
I'll make the world a more inviting place.
Yeah, I could make the world a better place!

Dream big!
The more you read
Dream big!
The more you succeed
Dream big!
Jump in and dig
Don't dream a little dream, dream big!

I want to be the greatest possible me.
I want to fill my cup.
Give me a dream, I'll take it to the extreme!
Pump it up, pump it up, pump it up, pump it up!

Dream big!
The more you know
Dream big!
The more it can grow
Dream big!
So jump in and dig
Don't dream a little dream, dream big!
