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 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 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, right now
Let it come true right now
Oh yeah
