This is one of The (pronounced theee) King's best songs, which I only came to discovered recently after an American Idol gig that was recently performed. The song is wonderful and the lyrics are as good. Enjoy!
Elvis Presley - If I can Dream
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 cant my dream come true?
There must be peace and understanding ... sometime
Strong winds of promise ... that will blow away
All 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 wont that sun appear?
Were lost in a cloud
With too much rain
Were 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
And here's the duet Celine Dion sang with Elvis on American Idol. Not bad if you ask me.
