lyrics

Tried so hard to explain
The way things are and how quick they can change
But you never listened you just turned your head
Never even heard a single word that he said
While it's true now that I'm not a saint
I felt pain when you live to hate
Said it before and I'll say it again
Leave me alone man or treat me like a friend

I had a dream last night
Everybody's laughing and everything was alright
Still some hope in sight, that was last night

I had a dream last night
Nobody's crying, nobody's frightened
Still some hope in sight, that was last night

Well if it seems like I sound like the rest
We're trying hard not to be too depressed
Once they take everything I've left, it's so easy
So if you're dreaming I hhope that you do
Wish for the best and hope that it comes true
Who knows what they'll leave when they're through

I had a dream last night
Everybody's laughing and everything was alright
Still some hope in sight, that was last night

I had a dream last night
Nobody's crying, nobody's frightened
Still some hope in sight, that was last night

Their signature songs Looking For Lewis And Clark and I Had A Dream have never left the airwaves. ... more
