This song is about taking chances - risking life and not playing it safe, because without taking chances you'll never know what you can achieve. (thanks, Emma - Wesford, Ireland)

No, it wasn't We Shall Be Free. Jill is right...the video features a high school boy with Down Syndrome who decides not to participate in the school's Special Olympics but signs up for the regular event instead.

I don't remember where I read this, but: I remember this is about Garth's sister, who was in his band and is gay. He loved her, was proud of her and admired her strength in dealing with life.

the music video features a mentally challenged boy trying out for the athletic trackteam instead of the special team
