We, had a dream that we could fly, high above.
And we, had a dream we just might be, strong enough.
To make it seem in our world that, we were kings
we could be anything, do anything.
Just believe, and someday we will find a way, make our way (yeah).

How long, I say how long.

Light all of their torches so they could see
we'd light up the sky if we were kings.
Light all of their torches so they could see
we'd light up the sky if we were kings.

Stay, here together and we'll be free, for a day.
Faith, be our only saving grace, light the way.
So we can seize the day, come tomorrow awake
and if Heaven can wait, just how long can it take.
I believe, we'll be kings every day you and me, I believe (yeah).

How long, I say not long.

Light all of their torches so they could see
we'd light up the sky if we were kings.

And we'll take it to that other place
to rise above and find a way.
To make it through another day
and light the way if we were kings.

Light all of their torches so they could see
we'd light up the sky if we were kings.
Light all of their torches so they could see
we'd light up the sky if we were kings.

We'd stand together if we we're free
we'd light up the sky, if we were kings.
