Dreamer

By
When I look around
I see smokers
Druggies
Haters
Gangs
and all I want to do
is help

we need a dreamer
to take away the pain
we need a dreamer
to cover us when it rains
we need a dreamer
to take us off the streets
we need a dreamer
'cuz without one we face defeat

when youre lonely or sad
youve got family and friends
for comfort when it gets bad
think of all the children
whove had that option taken away
its like being stolen from
only worse in every way

we need a dreamer
to take away the pain
we need a dreamer
to cover us when it rains
we need a dreamer
to take us off the streets
we need a dreamer
'cuz without one we face defeat

with economic crisis
starin us in the face
we know it cant get better
its puttin us to shame
we gotta get an official
who knows just what to do
we gotta get a leader
and a dreamer maybe too

we need a dreamer
to take away the pain
we need a dreamer
to cover us when it rains
we need a dreamer
to take us off the streets
we need a dreamer
'cuz without one we face defeat

look around you and you see
all the things that will effect me
when youre old and gone
your children will live on
do you think theyll want
a planet thats got problems

we need a dreamer
to take away the pain
we need a dreamer
to cover us when it rains
we need a dreamer
to take us off the streets
we need a dreamer
'cuz without one we face defeat

people say they believe
in the rights of unborn
theres just one thing to say
abortions a chore
what about the rights
of women worldwide
you look at them and sigh
and dont ask me why

we need a dreamer
to take away the pain
we need a dreamer
to cover us when it rains
we need a dreamer
to take us off the streets
we need a dreamer
'cuz without one we face defeat

think of all the homeless
who dont have a place to stay
think of all the people
who dont get any pay
these people we know
have to go food banks
to get some nutrition
so they can mmake it next day

we need a dreamer
to take away the pain
we need a dreamer
to cover us when it rains
we need a dreamer
to take us off the streets
we need a dreamer
'cuz without one we face defeat

This is so true.We do need a dreamer.My dad was homeless once upon a time.I know our economy is looking bad, so we do need a dreamer.I love songs and poems like this, because the author actually knows what they mean.They understand what is going on in this world.To you I say thanks for making this.It just inspired me more!I love it...keep waiting for our dreamer.We'll get one, one of these days.
