And a bus comes in on the hollywood freeway in the dark

A face catches sight of home, though at this spirited town

Such a beating of the heart and a hope deep down inside

They say the streets are paved with gold

But it sure looks kind of cold outside


Steppin on the sidewalk with the stars beneath her feet

Just a handful of tourists, is all shes bound to meet

So tough to find a room and it takes more than a day

And its not too nice and the price is high

Somehow she cant help but cry

In a world full of fantasies, reality can hurt

Its about the fiction, the odds wont go with her on


Chorus:

Dream street, dream street

Will it all come true? will it all just fade away

Dream street, dream street

Well, its hard to find and

It wont let hope escape from dream street


A year goes by, and the situation she cant stand

Came to be an actress, but a waitress is all she lands

Her colleague smiles at her through the wrinkles of her face

She came here too, with the self-same goals

She never got out of this place


She makes her mind up, shes gonna leave that very night

Its been so long now since shes felt that good inside

She calls the service line, theres a message in there for her

Shes gotta star in a movie part, suddenly its all worthwhile

Oh a little bit closer now, but really still too far

Is it always out of reach, that bright and shiny star of


Repeat chorus
