about

This track was created by five Indigenous kids who were voted as the top vocalists in AIME's Got Game in 2014. The track was recorded in one day at Trackdown Studios, Entertainment Quarter. The kids worked with Sam McNeill of Song Division, along with Busby Marou, Kaylah Truth, Lionel Cole, Marcus Corowa, Mau Power, Microwave Jenny, Nooky and Philly to create something special.

lyrics

INTRO

When I get knocked down I’ll come back fighting
We all need someone to care
Everyone’s been hurt before but we’re still standing

VERSE 1

I have a dream to get to where we’re going
To believe and follow our hearts
Yeah you can’t stop us, this is who I want to be
Together as one we will stand strong

PRE-CHORUS

We’re here to inspire
We must always reach higher

CHORUS

It’s a New day open your eyes
Find Your Way
Reach for the sky
AIME HIGH
It’s New day open your eyes
Reach for the sky
AIME HIGH

VERSE 2

See the fire in my soul
Sparked by the passion I see
When I’m feeling down and out
I look to those before me

PRE-CHORUS

We’re here to inspire
We must always reach higher

CHORUS

It’s a New day open your eyes
Find Your Way
Reach for the sky
AIME HIGH
It’s New day open your eyes
Reach for the sky
AIME HIGH

RAP 1

Come on and listen
We got what you missin’
We speak from the heart that’s why they all listen
Changing the game we be making decisions
I rap with precision more bars than a prison
This country needs change ill make it my mission
Watch me succeed everything I envision
It starts with a dream that’s simple addition
Add that to my pride and theres no competition

RAP 2

It’s 2014 the game is changing
With the new way and culture, we’re rearrangin'
Respecting each other, man that’s amazing
The fire inside of us is alive and blazing
You may not believe, I’ll make it too the top, but I do
And one day I’ll be your boss
The divide has to stop with out generation
We got pride, we got passion, drive and dedication
With our skills, goals, and education, soon enough
You’ll see us running this nation

CHORUS

It’s a New day open your eyes
Find Your Way
Reach for the sky
AIME HIGH
It’s New day open your eyes
Find your way
Reach for the sky
AIME HIGH
