If I Can Dream

artist: Elvis Presley 1968

by: elvis presley
songwriter: Walter Earl Brown

There must be lights burning
brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher
in a 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 of 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 troubled with pain
But as long as a man
has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly

Deep in my heart there's
a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer,
answer's gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark,
there's a beckoning candle, yeah
And 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, oh
Right now, let it
come true right now
Oh yeah
