The things that keep me up at night .. and tosses
My soul around as I see society focused on losses
Instead of seeing things in terms of dreams unfulfilled
To be pushed hard for, chased, pursued and willed
No, life isn’t some glamorous scene out of Hollywood
Then again, have you seen Hollywood and understood
Real life is more than some pretense and painted illusion
If you think that, let me help you out of your sad confusion
Look around you and tell me, sisters and brothers, what do you see?
Quit with all that gloom and let’s reach out for its potentiality
Oh you tell me don’t you that that was a different day and age?
And me, I won’t even begin to pretend that I am some sort of sage
But, I do know that as our country and us come at this present age
It is we dreamers who believe in hope and the future who set the stage…
