Elvis – If I Can Dream

Dream

If I Can Dream

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?
Oh why?

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, yeah.

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…
Right now.

Performed by
