Fairytales

Verse 1:

It ain't the
length of life, it's the depth of life, and life
can be a treasure, but only if you invest it right!
Quality over quantity... That's what they
tellin' me constantly, honest, see we

all got a dream right? A nice whip.
And nothin' but green lights cruisin' down the strip.
Bliss, but to some, dreams seem like nothing
more than a thought that unfolds while we sleep tight...

But why you stop dreaming when you woke up?
A dream is a season, for folks like us!
Every day people, with every day pursuits,
it ain't limited to rich men in suits, true!

You wanna know who you are? Well tell me what you're
committed to... and there's your answer, no limit dude.
If you've been given a dream, do as the ballers do...
Lace up, take that shot, and follow through

Chorus:

Every dream that's ever tried to
knock on my door, oh they're safe here
Tell 'em they're safe here
Cause every time they say I should stop dreamin', I tell 'em I won't
Cause I'm not chasin' fairytales

Verse 2:

Before I die, I wanna _______… You
fill in the blank, it ain't rhetorical, ain't no
metaphorical kind of time, the bottom line? To
live without a dream would be horrible! It's

something we can't afford to do, price tag is crazy,
like shoppin' at Gucci, when you should be at Macy's!
I see the blank, gotta fill it with
before I die, I wanna live, don't

live your life through someone else's eyes, and be a Dana
Harvey, you're mastered by disguise, oh lawd…
See I could write with a ball pen for coins, but
then you'd still be missing the "point", my point...

God is not a resource, He's THE source!
He provides every road so we can see the course.
Of course, we gotta take the steps though,
No point in a road being visible if you don't step forward

You can't steer a parked car, you can
try, but promise, you gonna sit there where you are
I'm darin' you to dream… Well very well…
Now go and show the world that dreams ain't fairytales

Chorus:

Every dream that's ever tried to
knock on my door, oh they're safe here
Tell 'em they're safe here
Cause every time they say I should stop dreamin', I tell 'em I won't
Cause I'm not chasin' fairytales
