When I was a little guy, my daddy told me
"Mister don't ever try to climb too high
'Cause it's the fall that gets ya
And some dreams can never come true
They'll never come true"

Well, I heard every word he said
But I don't guess I listened
But every time I banged my head
Against the wall or system

Yeah, some dreams don't ever come true
Don't ever come true, but some dreams do

If you just hang on and your heart is true
And your hope is strong
Well, just because you've been around
And had your poor heart broken
That's no excuse for lyin' there
Before the last word's spoken

'Cause some dreams don't ever come true
Don't ever come true, aw, but some dreams do

When you're feelin' low
And you think you're through
That's when you will know
Yeah, when you wish upon a star
Buddy, don't you miss it, catch it 'fore it falls too far
Keep it with your secrets

'Cause some dreams don't ever come true
Don't ever come true, don't ever come true
But some dreams do
