  • The higher you fly, the harder you fall
    The way that it goes, so they say
    No mountain's too high, no valley too low
    No river too wide on the way
    So you're gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
    Gonna make it on your own
    Write a song that everyone can sing along
    So you want to take a trip to the stars
    Can you find your way back home?
    You'll get your break, but don't you wait too long

    The harder you try, the lower you fall
    The way that it seems, so they say
    The mountain is high, the valley so low
    You're losing your dreams on the way

    So you're gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
    Gonna make it on your own
    Write a song that everyone can sing along
    So you want to take a trip to the stars
    Can you find your way back home?
    You'll get your break, but don't you wait too long

    Looking behind you
    All the bad times that you've had
    Looking before you
    Only good times?

    So you're gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
    Gonna make it on your own
    Write a song that everyone can sing along
    So you want to take a trip to the stars
    Can you find your way back home?
    You'll get your break, but don't you wait too long
    Now don't you wait too long
