Michael Ball – If I Can Dream lyrics

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in the 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 are 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 trouble with pain
As long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and climb

Deep in my heart there's a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer's gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark
There's a beckoning candle here
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
If I can dream right now
I say, if I can dream
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Let it come true
Right now
