Lyrics of The dream

I have a dream
A dream as beautiful as it is extreme
I know it’s not as crazy as it may seem
So I don’t ever wanna give up on this dream
Open your heart
And you’ll arrive with where the dream has to start
To pull a world together out of the parts
And turn this war into a hopeful work of art

We have lived the darkest night
Waiting for the days
Now the time for us is right
To arise and say

I dream of love
You dream of love
Angels of God
We all dream of love
I dream of love
You dream of love
Angels of God
We all dream of love

Svijetu nisi dužan ti
Ništa donijeti
Jedino si čovjek kad
Možeš voljeti

Kao heroj, kao heroj
I molitva, ljubav je heroj
Kao heroj, kao heroj
I molitva, ljubav je heroj
