Don't Dream It's Over
Crowded House 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'll never see the end of the road
While you're traveling 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 possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

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 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 release

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

Don't let them win (hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now)
Hey now, hey now
Don't let them win (they come, they come)
Don't let them win (hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now)

Paul McCartney said this is the one song he wish he wrote.

Prince Blake

I could imagine Paul writing a song say, like "Sailing" then realizing it would be better to give it away to an artist like Amy Winehouse who could turn up the heat several notches, maybe give it a new chorus, add a bridge and voila, her hit song, "You Know I'm No Good"

Hattie Lott

It's a ride, like life. Powerful tune.

I just wanna say hi to all the Gen X'ers whose childhoods were in the 80s. Hey. We're in our 40s now it feels so weird 😫 but I wouldn't trade our childhood years for anything!!! Best cartoons, best toys, cassette tapes...

@Warren Chambers I'm so sorry, and although whatever happened will always stay with you it definitely does not define you. Don't let it defy you either. I pray that you find inner peace and happiness. I'm almost sixty-two and this is not the world I grew up in. I feel your pain in many ways although maybe not for the same reasons. You stay strong, walk tall and hold your head up. We are all worth it; you need to see it in yourself. Never give up.

84 was hell. But before that I had a home and a warm glowing vision of what the world was turns out it I was wrong very wrong. It's tough on a 10 yr old to see the ugly truth. Been so long ago now but still haunts me.
