I Have A Dream - Abba

I like this song mainly because it made an affirmation about me - I have a dream. When I was still a kid, I had a very simple dream - to be happy. And as I age, I realize how complicated life could be in trying to be happy. I was just thinking about laughing all the time, wearing those smiles and affecting other people. That's how simple being happy is, really?

In reality, no matter how much we want to make others happy, or make ourselves happy, most of the time we end up rejected. It's just so hard to please other people and personally, I find it even harder to please my self. I find it hard to convince myself that I got what I wanted in life. I really don't see it. Other people would tell me, "You are good at what you do"... I am not convinced.

From my previous post, I said I make things Complicated most of the time. I still do. Nevetheless, as this song would also remind me, having a dream is just one thing. Coupling it with being satisfied in what we do is good enough. We really don't need to have a grand dream and expect to achieve them. What's the point of realizing that kind of dream when we are not happy after all?

Here is the lyrics:
I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail

I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me

I'll cross the stream - I have a dream
I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality
And my destination makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness still another mile

I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me

I'll cross the stream - I have a dream
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream
I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything

If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

Let's sing with it:
