The whole concept for "Hang On To The Dream" began with this song:

"Hang On to the Dream"
Words & Music by Christopher Ewing

What's this thought you've been trying to think?
That your dream's gone down the tubes,
failure on the brink.
Did you come this far just to give in?
Did you work this hard never meaning to win?

There was a time you knew you had what it took,
that you made the grade, 
that you had the look.
Now yourself you're deceiving by stopping believing.
You can't lose hope because of a slope.

Don't you ever give up,
you must still believe,
no matter how hard things seem
Dreams, dreams, dreams
Take it to the top,
and don't you stop.
No matter how hard things seem,
Hang On to the Dream

Dreams are just successes under construction 
and believing in yourself 
generates production.
Go build on your dream like you did once before,
believing in your heart that the time has come to soar!

Don't you ever give up,
you must still believe,
no matter how hard things seem
Dreams, dreams, dreams
Take it to the top,
and don't you stop.
No matter how hard things seem,
Hang On to the Dream!
