I got a dream for the world
Peace in the rivers and everywhere
Bridges of steel and love and cities that smile
Gray empty faces walk by
And hands try to hide all the lonlieness
Lighting a cigarette to blow time away

Lost in the noise, lonely as a wind
People on sidewalks with no place to go
Can they learn to understand
The world of love that I'm dreaming
The world of love

And I, I said I got a sack full of dreams
Streets full of laughter and toy ballons
And people with hearts that care
Who listen for love wanting the same
Wanting to care wanting to share
All my dreams for the world
Can they learn to
Understand the world of love
That I'm dreaming
The world of love

Wanting the same
Wanting to care
Wanting to share
All my dreams for the world
Can they learn, can they learn
Can they learn to understand
The world of love peace, peace, happiness
Love and kindness
This is my sack full of dreams
