Lyrics

Follow your dreams, follow your heart
Follow your dreams, follow your heart
Follow your dreams, follow your heart
Follow your dreams, follow your heart

When the world seems so lost in itself
and you feel that life is not so easy on you
Don't forget that you're not by yourself
For together we can make this world a better place

Give it a chance (There's time to save this planet now)
Give us a hand
Find the way to help Mother Earth (It is not too late to give her a chance)
Help make her proud (We can work a way to building up a new future)

Twinkling stars are watching us
The twinkling stars are watching from above (Keeping an eye on us)

What we do today can make another difference (Open your heart and your mind)
What we do today can make another difference (To the world now)
[Make a difference]
What we do today can make another difference (Open your heart and your mind)
What we do today can make another difference (To the world, do it now)

Together we can build a better world
Together we can make it better now
Together we can build a better world now
Together we can make it better now
Together we can build a better world
Together we can make it better now
Together we can build a better world Now's the time
Together we can make it better

Follow your dreams, follow your heart
Follow your dreams, follow your heart
Follow your dreams, follow your heart
Follow your dreams, yes you can
Follow your dreams, follow your heart
Follow your dreams, follow your heart
Follow your dreams, follow your heart
Follow your dreams

Follow your dreams!

Trivia

Make A Difference's banner.
  • According to wac, the original version of Make A Difference originally featured him doing the chorus of the song. This was later changed to sound closer to a song like たまゆら.
    • He also mentions that at one point Make A Difference would have featured a cappella vocals. This was later ruled out due to the sheer difficulty of implementing them into a music game.
  • Make A Difference was revived in beatmania IIDX 16 EMPRESS with a new Single HYPER chart, as well as a brand-new Single ANOTHER chart. The NORMAL charts and Double HYPER chart were unchanged.
  • Make A Difference received a Double ANOTHER chart in beatmania IIDX 16 EMPRESS + PREMIUM BEST. This chart was carried over to the arcade releases in beatmania IIDX 18 Resort Anthem.
    • It also received a new BEGINNER chart in beatmania IIDX 16 EMPRESS + PREMIUM BEST.
  • As of beatmania IIDX 20 tricoro, Make A Difference has its own dedicated video from the DanceDanceRevolution series, slightly extended to match the beatmania IIDX audio.
    • It's also currently the only song sung by Noriko Fukushima in any BEMANI arcade series, as well as her only non-cover/remix song where she didn't write the lyrics.
