Hot on the heels of the lyric reveal of their song, ‘Teenage Runaway’, Jedward have released the words for another track from their upcoming fourth album, ‘Voice Of A Rebel’. The second song, ‘Respect Your Dreams’, comes ahead of their UK tour, which starts with two nights at the historic Manchester venue, The Factory, 10 and 11 May.
With lyrics such as
“Go follow your heart don’t you be afraid
Laugh the pressure off
Give yourself the space to grow”
…’Respect Your Dreams’ is as much a mantra for the twins themselves as it is for those listening to the song – truly inspirational and relatable. Like previous song, ‘Teenage Runaway’, which they explained was about trusting your own instincts and following your own path, and not “letting society wash your colour out”, ‘Respect Your Dreams’ is a song of empowerment, and aims to instil courage in those who might feel downtrodden or unworthy.
Sharing across social media, the Dublin duo said that the song is about
“Inspiration and making sure people don’t forget about their dreams, and give time to what you love.”
“It’s nice to remind ourselves that we all just need to keep going, and this song has a great energy about it.”
“We all need to protect ourselves and thoughts from those people that aren’t worth it! Because if you are always open, people will bring you down.”
The lyrics, which are written in full on a post on Jedward’s Instagram account, are a celebration of people choosing to live their lives as themselves: a philosophy which the greater community should embrace.

Respect Your Dreams Give me a glimpse of bravery Do what you gotta do forget reality Bring on a brand new chapter Go follow your heart don’t you be afraid Laugh the pressure off Give yourself the space to grow Step out from the dark shadows Throw your fears aside today Step into the light free your soul Respect Your Dreams Go live your life Don’t write yourself off Put up a fight oh Protect your heart from those who hate Respect Your Dreams it’s not too late Can you tell me where is the dreamer that I once knew who wouldn’t give up who had the right attitude now I see you’re living in a daze I’ll do all I can to help you through this faze Celebrate yourself why be someone else wash away regrets this life ain’t over yet Quit flirting with the fear oh don’t you disappear just know you’re worthy of it all I know you’ll conquer the demons inside your head through the highs and lows I know you’ll find yourself so don’t you let the bad vibes spread i wish you all the best By John and Edward Grimes Jedward
‘Voice Of A Rebel’ will be Jedward’s fourth album. They recently signed a five year recording contract with Universal Music. No date as yet has been given for its release.
