about

This song is written in support of a dear brother's march on Washington.
It takes teamwork to make a dream work.

I was imagining performing at an inauguration ceremony and or re election and I was dreaming about what I would say that I felt would be appropriate for such a monumental moment in my and the country's life. It's nice to bring out the nice tried and true RnB and rock pioneers but I would electrify the District with this one.. Dream big.. anything is possible. This song makes me feel colossal. Enjoy

lyrics

this ain't no illusion baybee It's time to be just who you are
get over yourself in style now let's make it happen
a new way of thinking is overdue now who asked you to pretend
if you're ready I mean really then don't hesitate to get up get up get up
let's get it in.

we've been waiting for you for this moment to arrive
we've been waiting for you feel the power touch the sky

what if we took that chance and dream big get out the box get it how you live?
get involved and we can get it all let's do it together
I want to see you shining like the beautiful stars you are
I know you're ready but you'll never know 'til you let go let Let's go
do it right now

chorus
let me know if you're ready to come up ready to touch the sky


I want to come up I want to touch the sky. You're so sky.

chorus
let me know if you're ready to come up ready to go
ready to come up Ready to touch the sky
