no boundaries is the song of american idol season 8. it was written by kara dioguardi, cathy dennis, and mitch allan. this song is the first single for the winner kris allen and runner-up adam lambert.

it’s another typical pop/rock song, nothing much to talk about. kris allen’s version is kinda ordinary, well, i can expect something like this from kelly clarkson. adam lambert’s version does sound so much better. both versions were produced by emanuel kiriakou.

seconds, hours, so many days
you know what you want
but how long can you wait?
every moment lasts forever
if you feel you’ve lost your way
what if your chances are already gone
started believing that i could be wrong
but you give me one good reason
to fight and never walk away
so here i am still holding on

every step you climb another mountain
every breath it’s harder to breathe
you’ll make it through the pain
weather the hurricanes
to get to that one thing

when you think the road is going nowhere
just when you’ve almost gave up on your dreams
they take you by the hand
and show you that you can
there are no boundaries
there are no boundaries

i fought to the limit to stand on the edge
what if today is as good as it gets
don’t know what the future’s heading
but nothing’s gonna bring me down
i’ve jumped every bridge and i’ve run every line
i’ve risked being safe but i always knew why
i always knew why
so here i am still holding on

every step you climb another mountain
every breath it’s harder to breathe
you’ll make it through the pain
weather the hurricanes to get to that one thing
when you think the road is going nowhere
just when you almost gave up on your dreams
they take you by the hand and show you that you can

you can go higher
you can go deeper
there are no boundaries
above and beneath you
break every rule ’cause there’s nothing
between you and your dreams
