Once upon a time in a forest full of green
Lived a lonely caterpillar with a suitcase full of dreams
Birds would soar above him, the deer would just ride by
As he kept looking upward to the sky

"Oh, lonely caterpillar" said the gentle evening breeze
"Open up that suitcase, find out what it means To Reach For A Dream
Reach for a star, reach for the brightest thing you are
You'll be amazed by what you can be
Don't be afraid, Reach For A Dream"

So he climbed into the suitcase, finding wondrous visions there
He was singing with the evening breeze, dancing in mid air
And the colors all around him were the loveliest he'd seen
As he felt himself become part of the dream

Oh lonely caterpillar, you can follow what you feel
All the wonders that you're finding can be real
If you Reach For A Dream, reach for a star, reach for the brightest thing you are
You'll be amazed by what you can be
Don't be afraid, Reach For A Dream

He finally came out for all the world to see
On wings all lace with gold and ebony
Butterfly, butterfly, you can catch a butterfly
If you find him first before he hears the evening breeze

Whisper Reach For A Dream, reach for a star, reach for the brightest thing you are
You'll be amazed by what you can be
Don't be afraid, Reach For A Dream
