From the recording Back To The Top (from "Indian Summer")
Written as the only song in the play, representing the protagonist's perspective on life.
I once tasted my dream And let it slip right from my hand The best feeling I ever had And I gotta get it back again They call me one hit wonder and two time loserAnd I'm gonna make 'em stop I'm gonna do whatever it takes To climb Back To The Top
I've been caught in crime and done my time Now I'm trying to catch up I'm running as fast as I can But that's not fast enough Like a prison yard it's every man for himself I'm just another crab in the pot I'm gonna do whatever it takes To climb Back To The Top
I know I'm a star, that's all I can see And nobody can take my dream away from me
They say patience is a virtue But the world don't work like that If you've got what I want or get in my way You better watch your back 'Cause I'll pray to God or the Devil Whichever one suits my cause I'm gonna do whatever it takes To climb Back To The Top Yeah I'm gonna do whatever it takes To climb Back To The Top
