Impossible is not a word, it's just a reason for someone not to try.


Shes a daydreamer shes not good for much. All she does is dream of what she could become. What she doesn't realize is without doin anything now. It'll all start crumbling down.





Chorus: Its a long way down when you're high up in the clouds. Its a painful fall when you're dreamin you've got it all. Its a slowly fading memory when you open your eyes and finally see. Its a long way down.







Now shes 23 starin out the window dreamin about tomorrow. She was just a girl but now shes grown. To scared to try to achieve what she wants. So she pretends shes the movie star shes watchin now. She pretends shes the singer on the radio right now. Her life is goin by fast she hasn't realized it yet the lesson that is. (repeat chorus)







She cant stop cryin now cause shes seen the truth. But she knows shes got somethin to prove. So she'll make that dream come true. (repeat chorus)

I really loved in the ending how she began to turn her pain into stregnth and was able to overcome what she was going through. Really inspiring. Keep up the good work :)

This is a very good song! I like how in the end she was able to make her dream come true and use all of her hurt emotions in a positive way.

I like this a lot. Even though there isn't music, you can imagine if there was. Really good.

Thanks :) I didnt actually sing it but I figured it out in my head... singing it would be kind of soft and slow then at the chorus loud and not slow but not fast. And instrumental it would be a mix of acoustic guitar and piano then at the chorus add in a electric guitar,,,, I have a lot of time to think about melody.  LOL

Thanks! Sure I'll check out your work. The tune is kind of in between slow and fast so I guess Moderate and mostly guitar and piano. If you want to know anything else about the tune feel free to ask.

Amazing! Love the lyrics! I was actually singing this to myself, goes to show that this could be a real song! Have you tried singing it and finding a melody/harmony?
