I Have a Dream Lyrics

I have a dream, a song to sing, to help me cope, with anything. If you see the wonder, of a fairytale, you can take the future, even if you fail. I believe in angels, something good in everything I see, I believe in angels, when I know the time...

    To start with, one must understand what Albert Einstein meant when he said: "Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955).

    In "I have a Dream" the songwriters have properly divided the world into two main spheres, the real world, and the supernatural world where imagination and fantasy dwell with such beings as angels, who only become "real" to us in our dreams.

    In this song, these two worlds are divided by an imaginary "stream", but it is a stream that one can choose to cross at will, going from the real world into one's spiritual world, or into one's imagination "whenever the time is right to be in that sphere".

    It is on the spiritual side of the stream where the real powers of personal attitude will determine if we are having a wonderful time in this life, or whether we are living our life in a difficult way, filled with sadness, anger, or in any way that does not take a moment to see the wonder of all things!

    Assuming that the author's undefined "destination" is the universal human desire to enjoy a meaningful life, this song is also encouragement to not give up, but rather to continue on "Pushing through the darkness… still another mile" because the destination makes it all worthwhile.

    This is a beautiful song, and once seen in this light, it is not only beautiful, uplifting and encouraging as well.
