Reach High


It's time! It's time!
Everybody reach high
In the air 
Do it like you don't care
No matter your faults
Look at your wins
No matter if your caught
Take people for a spin

People want to laugh
People want to put down
You'll get the last laugh
People will be the rebound
Just reach high to the light
People will see you just despite
What you've done or will you'll be
Just reach high and do it for me

Have fun, don't run
Don't be afraid
There's no point for that
You'll look like a renegade
Say what you'll say 
Do what you feel
Today's not the day to play
Today's the day to be real

Have faith in yourself
Believe in what you do
Don't sit their and dwell
Learn your skills to be used
You are apart of life 
So embrace that part
Stand up to the light
and give yourself a head start

I'll stand by your side
I'll help you raise yourself high
I'll help you glide in the air
Will both stand side by side
Don't bring yourself down
Show then what you got
Be the one in front
Make sure you stay on top
