'There are no impossible dreams'

Children of Tomorrow - Theme Song

In 1998 Emily Laws and Yvonne Smedley composed ELSA's theme song, 'Children of Tomorrow'.

In 1999 Emily, Yvonne, 15 students and some family members travelled by coach to a professional studio in Wakefield to make the first recording of the track, incorporating a trip to Bradford's famous TV and Film Museum.

On December 1st an updated version of the song was recorded as part of our 2013 celebrations at Bluebird Recording Studio in St. Annes. It was a successful and enjoyable experience and covered extensively by the local press. The following students successfully 'won' places on the recording: Millie Stephens, Hollie Stephens, Matthew Hellewell, Madelaine Markham, Erin James, Conor James, Poppy Appleton, Emily Gardner, Grace Hammond, Molly Baldwin, Siobahn Cartmell, Molly Turley. 

THE LYRICS

We're looking up at the mountains

Were gazing down to the deep

When you are fearful of drowning

When you're road is too steep

When obstacles are in your way

However tough it seems

Never doubt the truth

There's no impossible dreams

CHORUS: We are the children of tomorrow

We're reaching for the stars, the highest heights

Believe in us the way we do

We want to share the dream with you

We are the future, the shining lights

We have been given a gift

We have been given a voice

We have been given the world

We have been given a choice

We're told that dreams just can't come true

The price is just too high

But though our feet may touch the ground

You're going to see us fly

We're holding onto dreaming

This is where it starts

We'll shine on through tomorrow cos

We're following our hearts
