If I Can Dream
Elvis Presley Lyrics


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
Oh, please let my dream
Come true
Right now
Let it come true right now
Oh yeah

I'm well aware of when it's Austin singing.
Lol
You have no clue.
"Fever" is elvis's actual voice.
Austin sings "are you lonesome tonight" on the piano.
When he's lying down practicing lines for "if I can dream", "trouble" early on
"Bsby let's play house"
etc....
But it's mostly elvis.
"Fever" "I'm comin home"
Viva las Vegas"
"A little less conversation"
All elvis.
In the beginning when Jimmie Rogers Snow puts the record on the record player? That's elvis's actual voice on "that's all right"
Austin sings "hound dog" on the milton berle show.
But when he storms out of Graceland and turns on the car radio in his Cadillac?
That's elvis's actual voice on "hound dog".
I can immediately tell the difference, you obviously cannot.

You are laughably clueless.
It's not from the 68 special on. All during the movies, that's elvis's voice.
Viva las Vegas.
A little less conversation.
etc....
Earlier when elvis brings his mom and dad to Graceland for the first time, THAT'S elvis's actual voice on "I'm comin home"
That's elvis's actual voice on "fever"
You are extremely clueless.
I've studied the life, music and career of elvis presley longer than you've been alive. And you are embarrassing yourself greatly.
I know exactly what I am talking about, you on the other hand are completely and utterly clueless.

You are dead wrong.
Fever was not Austin.
That's elvis's voice
My god, you are incredibly stupid.
All during the early part of the film, it's elvis's actual voice we hear in the background. Director Baz Lurhman specifically chose a couple of songs that would be very easy for Austin to sing.
Trouble was one.
That's all right, was another.
But when Jimmie Rogers Snow puts on the record player, THAT'S elvis's voice.
It's only Austin when we see him in the studio at sun records.
Austin sings "baby let's play house".
But every time we hear songs in the background, like "fever", that's elvis presley singing.
My god you are completely clueless.

Reduced to tears by this.

I love Elvis , His voice is absolutely the best ever and in this song it's the epitome of "Nailed It" the way he projects that gritty yet man, I just can't describe it , I start everyday out with some Elvis upbeat songs and when I feel like I need that extra, I will end my days with some of his gospel music, He'll never be topped as someone put it Never

This has become one of my new favorite live performances. Wish I was alive to witness the phenomenon that was Elvis….while the movie was incredible, I’m sure it doesn’t capture the feeling of actually being there.
