Just thought I'd add the lyrics to this song, since July 4 is this Friday and some are seeking songs to sing for Independence Day. This song is not patriotic in the chauvinistic sense, but I think it's a good song for a patriotic program. It's one of my favorite Elvis songs.
IF I CAN DREAM (Elvis Presley, 1968
(words & music by W.Earl Brown)
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?
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 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's 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,
