I Had A Dream lyrics

If you wanna lead, be a leader
If you wanna dream, be a dreamer
Climb to the top of that mountain and
Scream it
But remember when you get to the top
Everything you say is gonna matter
Everything you do is gonna add up
It's what you asked for so
Don't get mad when it's not what you thought

Careful now girl with them Jezebel ways
Crown on your head, but you're queen of cliches
Little one playing with the big boys now
Hope you're ready when it comes back around

I had a dream and we were born
A generation to behold
Lighting fires with our words
Instead of useless stuff that blurs
The lines of right and wrong.
Expression that lives on
An army with a song
That lingers when we're gone
I had a dream

If you wanna preach, be a preacher
If you wanna teach, be a teacher
Remember that the footprints you’re leaving will tell us all who you really are

It's too bad, you can't see what you're worth
Spreading your legs instead of using your words
Character is shown by the things that we do
The one thing you're never gonna hide is the truth

'cause anyone can tell when you're selling out
And anyone can fly when they're falling down

I had a dream and we were born
A generation to behold
Lighting fires with our words
Instead of useless stuff that blurs
The lines of right and wrong
Expression that lives on
An army with a song
That lingers when we're gone
I had a dream

I had a dream

I had a dream and we were born
A generation to behold
Lighting fires with our words
Instead of useless stuff that blurs
The lines of right and wrong 
Expression that lives on
An army with a song
That lingers when we're gone
I had a dream
