There must be lights - burning brighter – somewhere
Got to be birds - flying higher - in a sky - more blue
If I can dream - of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true?
There must be peace - and understanding – sometime
Strong winds of promise - that will blow away
All the doubt - and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear?
We're lost in a cloud - with too much rain
We're trapped in a world - that's troubled with pain
But as long as a man - has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul - and fly
Deep in my heart - there's a trembling – question
Still I am sure that the answer's - gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark --- there's a beckoning candle
And while I can think - While I can talk
While I can stand - While I can walk
While I can dream - Please let my dream - come true - whoa
Right now --Let it come true right now -- Oh yeah
