Paul Young – Don't Dream It's Over lyrics

There is freedom within there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you never see the end of the road
While you're travelling with me
Hey now hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now hey now
When the world comes in
They come they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win
Now I'm towing my car there's a hole in the roof
My possesions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over the tv page
Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief
Hey now hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now hey now
When the world comes in
They come they come
To build a wall between us
Don't ever let they win

    Prior to my dad Kenneth passing on Dec 3rd 1988, he would let me drive his maroon Ford 150. His passion was music. He would get truck back to drive to work. He would leave it on my radio station. So he comes home from work one night jazzed with a cassette tape in hand. "Baby doll" he says you gotta hear this song I heard today. " It was Don't dream it's over. Now tonight 26 yrs later. Heard it. In pops was speaking to me through the lyrics. Love you pops.
