Elvis Presley If I Can Dream Lyrics

Last updated: 06/13/2013 10:43:49 AM

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

the king | Reviewer: nuffy | 6/13/13

Big Elvis fan. He nailed this song. The passion in his voice the video of him in the white suit and his arms swing. I was reading where Elvis wanted a song about hope to end the show. Wow he got one.

GrePeace to the world | Reviewer: Mustapha | 6/7/13

Great singer of all times,he sings this song with passion I agree and you can see the message of peace that he is promoting to this world ,troubled with pain but as long as a man has the strengh to dream,he can fly where he is not mean to,what a power!! 7he promoted so much peace and love to so many may god bless his soul and god is giving him a lot of peace now,he was a very good example,his music will never die.

Replaying! | Reviewer: Dannyblast | 2/24/10

I really like this song, my favourite is
(Any day now), but this has got to be my second favourite Elvis Presley song. When ever I think of it or hear it I can't get the song out of my head, it just keeps going. I agree he puts so much emotion into it.


A World Wide Message | Reviewer: mama moss | 6/12/08

This song is phenomenal. It is a message of the dream of Peace and a world with less conflict. As for Elvis, oh, what can one say about EAP that hasn't been said already? This AWESOME Entertainer sings this song with so much passion and conviction that one can tell he REALLY believes the lyrics he is singing. LONG LIVE THE KING...Alive or dead...may you have YOUR peace.
