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 gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle

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, right now
Let it come true right now
Oh yeah

https://youtu.be/BLGddLhANWU (voice comparison and his religious quest)


You can actually visit his church but DO NOT mention “Elvis”.. “you should be there for the sermons and the religious aspect” That way you can still enjoy his beautiful tones and his service messages.

I absolutly agree Jackie!
But i'm not able to express it the way you did!
I'm German and it's difficult for me to express such deep feelings.
This song is just as heartbreaking as his performance and his
facial expressions.
And it stands for so much.
Pain, sorrow, hopelessness but hope as well.
The fear of the future.....so relevant in these days of Co19.
Let's hope that we will never loose the ability to dream.
We have a saying here in Germany.......the hope dies last!
Maybe you have a similar one......
Stay safe and take care!🌠
