Just a heads up Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson both recorded this song. It was written by Katy Perry. I really like both versions, so I featured both of them in this post.
To me, this song is about chasing after your dreams no matter how small the chances you have of exceeding it. You still chase after your dream no matter what.
It’s like in football, when the quarterback has to throw the go ahead, or tying touchdown for the game across the field. Yes, it might not be very likely, but there is still a chance of it happening.
We shouldn’t give up our dreams, or no longer pursue them, because there are challenging. We should chase our dreams, because that it what we are meant to do with our lives. If we don’t go after our goals we will more than likely regret not going after it.
“It’s a long shot, but I say why not-Katy Perry, Long Shot
If I say forget it, I know that I’ll regret it
It’s a long shot just to beat the odds
The chance is we won’t make it
But I know if I don’t take it, there’s no chance
‘Cause you’re the best I’ve got
So take a long shot”
