lyrics

we the dream
each of us in our own way
you and me
each of us will have our day
yes we believed in all good things to those who wait

so over and over
we trusted in vain
while they were playing their blameless shell game
waiting like job, for the winds of our change
our saving grace

for the lucky ones
for the bold and the free and
for the lucky ones
for you and for me and
for the lucky ones
for the soul of the dream and
for the lucky ones
for the right to believe it

we achieved our tired our poor through golden doors
they deceived and turned those doors to teeming shores

over and over
like children they play
taking whatever they want til the day
mommy and daddy stand up and they say
no not this way

for the lucky ones
for the bold and the free and
for the lucky ones
for you and for me and
for the lucky ones
for the soul of the dream and
for the lucky ones
for the right to believe it

over and over
like children they play
taking whatever they want til the day
mommy and daddy stand up and they say
no not this way

for the lucky ones
for the bold and the free and
for the lucky ones
for you and for me and
for the lucky ones
for the soul of the dream and
for the lucky ones
for the right to believe
what we gave away
all for the love of the lucky ones
we were led astray
looking as though we were having fun no
for the lucky ones
for the bold and the free and
for the lucky ones
for you and for me and
for the lucky ones
