"Dreamer (On My Own)" Originally Written 9/28/10, ©CMDonovann

Verse 1:

She stands on stage with her favorite star

He grins and says, "I know who you are"

She was so shy, but she's braver than most

She wakes from her dream feeling like a ghost

Verse 2:

She has some friends, but they'll never last

At school they ignore her as they pass

In class she actually pays attention

She's smart and reaches for perfection

Pre-chorus:

Someday she'll be great

Chorus:

The world was made by those who dared

to believe in their dreams

She thought no one ever cared

But nothing is as it seems

They all hated her way back when

Now they wish they had known

What that girl could be if she tried again

Now she's made it on her own

Verse 3:

He never listened to what they would say

He used to always get in their way

He wrote poems and songs about their cruelty

I guess it's too bad they didn't see

Pre-chorus:

Someday he'd be great

Chorus:

The world was made by those who dared

To believe in their dreams

He thought no one ever cared

But nothing is as it seems

They all hated him way back when

Now they wish they had known

What that boy could be if he tried again

Now he's made it on his own

Bridge:

Those dreamers who were all ignored

Became doers who took the floor

Who knew someday they'd be great

When they weren't even expected to graduate

Now you're all too late

Chorus:

The world is made by those who dare

To believe in what they dream

I thought no one ever cared

But I am not what I seem

You all hate me now and then

But someday you'll wish you'd known

What I could be if I try again

I can make it on my own

Chorus:

The world is made by those who dare

To believe in their dreams

You thought no one ever cared

But life isn't what it seems

They might hate you now and then

But someday they'll wish they'd known

What you could be if you try again

You can make it on your own

Outro:

You can make it, dreamer

Just keep dreaming
