(chorus: Rachel Layton)

Do you have a dream

Or an ambition

Every kid has one

Oh Oh

Don't stop believing

And look up at the sky

And reach for the stars

Oh Oh

(verse 1: Rapsta Chik)

I remember being back in the nineties

Knowing i was different

I knew I was somehow

Just didnt know how

And then I realised I was born to entertain

Even though with that career there is always a bit of pain

But I aint in it for the pain, I'm in it for the gain

I'm in it for my fans, in shine or rain

And all these haters tryna take me down

They just jealous of you

Because you got it and they don't

Lesson here is if you bein hated on

Don't let them get to you

Just reach for them

(chorus: Rachel Layton)

(verse 2: Tupac Shakur)

All the boys and the girls

All over the world

You got a dream

Then follow it

Don't let anyone bring you down

Don't let them take your shine

Everything will be okay if you shinin like a star

So reach up high kid

Reach up high

(reach up high kid, reach up high)

(chorus: Rapsta Chik and Rachel Layton)

(verse 3: Rapsta (Layton))

(ah,ah,ah) So what you got a gift (ah,ah,ah)

Why these haters gotta be so cruel (ah,ah,ah)

When the strike, just get back up (ah,ah,ah)

Instead of ending life, make a new one

(chorus: Rapsta Chik)

(chorus 2: Rachel Layton)

We are gifted

So reach for the stars

Reach for the stars

I know you have a dream

And an ambition

Every kid has one

Oh oh (oh, oh, oh, oh)

Music VideoEdit

The video was released on May 31, 2014. It began with Rapsta Chik walking down a road rapping with Laytons vocals heard in the background. Rapsta Chik stops and looks up at the sky during Tupac's verse. During the third verse she leaves a flower at a grave, the name on the grave is not seen so it can only be assumed it was Tupac's grave. The video fades out as Rapsta Chik walks back down the road.
