lyrics

An open field to explore
A dream come true you can't ignore
It's time to venture outside
Sunny days and big blue sky
Time to wave the past goodbye
Let's get on up and ride

This is the first day of the rest of your life
Don't be deluded if distractions are rife
Just look up to the heavens in your time of strife
And sing it out loud:"The dream is alive!"


I got a ticket to ride
Off to the other side
Where the light shines brighter than the sun
And life will never be the same
Good love will be our fame
That'll be remembered when we're done

There's a burning in my soul
and a fire in my veins
There is hope on the horizon
there is freedom from the chains
Living comes down to giving,
and dying is to gain
Life can be more, when the dream is alive

Greater things have we to do
It may be crazy but it's true
A little bit of faith is all we need
For this dying world needs to know
That hope will rise and love will grow
And there is every reason to believe

There is peace for those in trouble
and comfort for those who fear
Grace abounds so freely
for those who will draw near
There's a life that can be lived
and it all begins right here
Yes I am living proof,
that the dream is alive
