When you’ve taken that first step there’s no turning back.
‘nd there will be a long road ahead of you so make sure you pack.
Now you’ll never make it to the top until you take the risk.
Until you take that first step and believe within yourself.
When the fire inside you goes away you’ll know loneliness
and what it feels like to be turned away; to be second best.
So you’ve got to reach into your soul and let the fire grow again.
Risk the only thing you’ve got left to hold on to
and let the cuts mend.
‘Cause it’s the trip up the mountain that counts in the end.
That’s where you’ll find the good times,
that’s where you’ll find true friends.
Baby it’s the trip up the mountain takes all that you’ve got.
If you want to make it to the top and claim your rightful spot,
you’ve got to give it your all and climb the highest you can.
Andwhen the others fall, lend a helping hand.
‘Cause even though the top of the mountain,
is what you’re aimin for; I tell ya it’s the trip up the mountain,
that counts for so much more…..
