Jimmy Somerville – A Dream Gone Wrong lyrics

(butcher / somerville)

How high a mountain must I climb
To reach for air
To breath the air so clear so pure
Could blow my mind
In my mind there is a place
For everyone for every taste
But in this life reality can shoot you dead
For the colour of your face

We can't all believe in the lord on high
But it's our love that stops us crying
We can't change the fact
We are born to die
We can't all profess to know how or why
But keep on reaching don't stop trying

I've seen a poison river flow
A land where nothing grows
I've watched the men of fascist mind
Kill in the name of love
The futile war the human crime
The sacred scream just biding time
And who are we to take in vain
This precious world I'm full of shame

We can't run and hide as hard as we try
We can't all believe in the lord on high
But it's our love that stops us crying
We can't change the fact
We are born to die
We can't all profess to know how or why
But keep on reaching don't stop trying

If the dreams gone wrong
Let your heart be strong
If the dreams gone wrong

Don't let hope fade away

And who are we to take in vain
The precious world I'm full of shame

We can't run and hide as hard as we try
We can't all believe in the lord on high
But it's our love that stops us crying
We can't change the fact
We are born to die
We can't all profess to know how or why
But keep on reaching don't stop trying
