Introduction: 
This song is my very first song ever written completely in english. I had been trying to do so without success in the past, as I wanted it to have an interesting topic (different from what I have written in spanish) some kind of brit pop + trova music structure and my personal touch on the lyrics. I’m satisfied with the outcome but you are the final judge.

Topic:
The topic of this song is to talk about the reasons of why a dreamer might choose to keep working to reach his/her goals, even when they might seem idealistic or unrealistic to some.

Approach: 
This song is written in first person form, and it aludes to dreamers from all ages and nations. It’s written in a general way, so that the actual goals or actions do not leave any dreamer out. It also states some dreamer paradoxes as believing one is “The Chosen One” when there are thousands others who do so as well, and when if the mission or destiny is only assumed by one person, the goal is unachievable.

Music:
Acoustic Guitar and voice, simple because of time constrains. I hope you enjoy it.

Lyrics:
Trying to get away to a higher place
To try a better taste than this world’s got to offer
Found out I’m The Chosen One
But just another One
It’s nothing special being special
But I made a decision I thought was best for me
I might not look so promising but I gave away my life
‘Cause just by trying I know that I become a better man
I know I’ll get to the end ’cause I’m the most stubborn of all
And even if at last I never get to change the World
Something will be better than before
Trying to get away from life’s routine
Found a pal called pain
Helps make things less predictable
Found out I was made for this
To take some faith and dreams
And try to turn them into better things
Because I made a decision I thought was best for the rest
I might not look so promising but I gave away my life
‘Cause just by trying I know that I become a better man
I know I’ll get to the end ’cause I’m the most stubborn of all
And even if at last I never get to change the World
Something will be better than before
