Lyrics

Dream

Written By: Raymond P. Feldman

THERE'S A TIME WHEN EACH AND EVERYONE
MUST LOOK AROUND AND SEE
BEYOND THE WORLD OF PAYMENT BOOKS
AND ALL THE JUNK THEY BRING

IMAGINE WHAT IT'S LIKE OUTSIDE THAT WORLD
REALIZE WHAT REALLY MATTERS TO YOURSELF
- AND DREAM

HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO SOAR ABOVE A MOUNTAIN IN YOUR MIND?
SET YOUR SIGHTS BEYOND THE FARTHEST PEAK AND NEVER LOOK BEHIND
TAKE A FLIGHT RIGHT THROUGH THE CLOUDS UP IN YOUR SKY
HIGH ENOUGH TO LOSE THE SIGHT OF THE DAILY GRIND
-AND DREAM........

TAKE IT TO THE TOP
TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT
DON'T EVER LOOK BEHIND
DON'T WASTE ANOTHER MINUTE
TIME TO SMELL THE ROSES
BEFORE THE SHOP CLOSES
TAKE ANOTHER CHANCE
DON'T MISS THE LAST DANCE
SEE THE SUN SHINING
FORGET ABOUT THE WHINING
MAKE EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD EXCITING
BE FREE
- AND DREAM

FORGET TO SMELL THE COFFEE IN THE MORNING FOR A CHANGE
IGNORE THE CALL FOR ACTION WHEN AN ARGUMENT'S ARRANGED
SET ASIDE SOME TIME TO WONDER IF IT'S GONNA' CHANGE THE THEME
TAKE ANOTHER FLIGHT TO NOWHERE IN YOUR MIND AND SET A SCENE
- AND DREAM

TAKE IT PAST THE TOP
GO BEYOND THE LIMIT
FORGET YOUR REARVIEW MIRROR
AND EVERYTHING THAT'S IN IT
MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN
FORGET YOUR FIRST REACTION
LOOK BEYOND THE PROBLEM
AND TAKE SOME REAL INACTION
USE A MENTAL IMAGE
TO PUT IT IN PERSPECTIVE
IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER
IN THE END IT MEANS NOTHIN'
YOU'RE FREE
-JUST DREAM
