What If I Can Dream
If I Can Dream Elvis
"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 of 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 were hope keeps shining on everyone. Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear? Were lost in a cloud with to 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," these were words of a man who had a exemplary gift to perform and a passion for people.
Listening to The Essential Elvis Presley CD that was given as a gift the words of the song, "If I Can Dream" has so much passion, so much feeling , so much emotion. Elvis had seen the pain in the 70's but these words still ring true at this specific moment and time. There is sorrow and pain. Where is the Peace and understanding? I have witnessed the World becoming worse , I see it on the Internet everyday. People who you have never met look to torment and lash out at each other. They do not have any idea who you are, where you are from, what kind of person you are in the real World. They make assumptions not realizing that there is a person on the other side of the keyboard. A person that puts there pants, shoes, skirts, shirts or any other garment on the same way. The work, enjoy there family and there life but there is always someone out there who is trying to seek and destroy.
Elvis dreamed of a better place he didn't understand all of the suffering , it really hasn't changed much. Why can't we walk hand-in-hand? Why can't we get along? The words that were sang by Elvis made me realize that I to can dream and just like him so long as I am living, breathing and alive I to can redeem my soul and fly. we were not born to harm, but to love, when others hurt, forgive but do not allow others to taunt, harm , badger or cause you pain.
If you have Suspicious Minds, I just can't help believing that Kentucky rain will come out and you will shine. If you are a Devil In Disguise stop being so Moody Blue and Follow That Dream wherever that may dream may lead. Life is to short to get All Shook Up, please try not to step on other people's Blue Suede Shoes, maybe having A Little Less Conversation there would be Peace In The Valley.
As for me the Wonder Of You makes me believe that If I Can Dream , memories of Hurt only make me understand that the Big Boss Man is watching over me and you can bet that the Big Boss Man is watching over you too. I gotta follow that dream wherever that dream may lead, and you don't know me, but I can try to promise you a Pocket Full Of Rainbows.
