I think the song also teaches and sends a message to the people on the other side of begining.<P>I think it tells parents, adults, wifes, husbands, employers, teachers, pastors, and other figures who find it hard to believe in people starting off to just let go.<P>I think it sends a message to the people dealing with people that are trying to make something of themselves.<P>I think it says to be easy on those with dreams.<P>I think it reminds those who are condeming people for their ambitions that<BR>HEY<BR>THAT USED TO BE YOU.<P>Overall it can speak to everyone who interacts with other people.N
