I have chased after rainbows
I've captured one or two
I've reached for the stars
I've even held a few
I've walked that lonesome valley
Topped the mountains, soared the sky
I've laughed and I have cried
But I have always tried

I've always been a dreamer
And dreams are special things
But dreams are of no value
If they're not equipped with wings
So secure yourself for climbing
Make ready for the flight
Don't let your chance go by
You'll make it if you try

So try to be the first one up the mountain
And try to be the first to touch the sky
And try to be one that make a difference
Try to put your fear and doubt aside

And try to make the most of every moment
'Cause if you never try you never win
So try each day to try a little harder
And if you fall, get up and try again

Nothing is impossible
If you can just believe
Don't live your life in shackles
When faith can be the key
The winner's one that keeps determination in his eyes
Who's not afraid to fly and not afraid to try

So try to be the first one up that mountain
And try to be the first to touch the sky
And try to count your blessings and keep counting
And try to soar where only eagles fly

And if you fail at first just keep on trying
For you are not a failure in God's eyes
The first step is the one that's always hardest
But you won't amount too much if you won't try
So spread your wings and let the magic happen
'Cause you'll never really know if you don't try

You gotta try
Come give it a try
You have to try
I know it ain't easy, who ever said it was
Life is hard, same as it ever was
You have to try (You have to try)

When you think you can't do it just try a little harder
Just dig a little deeper and go a little further but try (try)
You have to try (try)

What every it is you're gonna get through it
Let the spirit lead you I know you can do it
Just try (try) 
Just give it a try
And whenever you think you ain't gonna make
Put a smile on your face, suck it up and take it for a while (give it a try)
At least you know you tried (give it a try)

Don't think that I don't suffer
I know what I'm saying
When I get to that place where I start praying
And I try
Lord knows I try
Yes I try
