  • 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 Writer/s: Benny Goran Bror Andersson, Bjoern K. Ulvaeus

  • Reuben from AmsterdamA few years ago I commented that I have a dream had a 'high annoyance level' to me. Years later I indeed surrender to ABBA and admit: it is a sweet song bringing back memories of when I was nine years old.
  • Siahara Shyne Carter from United StatesNo bias but I think Weslife did it best! with Compliment to the Original singer too I also like the Orginal but WESTLIFE is already stuck in my head that they sing this I never heard any of the names below, Thats all I know
  • Larry from Coral Springs, FlNo,Cyberpope. Only Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Anderson did. But Nana Mouskouri sang it well.

  • Philip from Manchester, United KingdomThe choir backing Abba at the Bingley Hall (Stafford, England) Concerts in 1979 were from St. Winifreds School in Stockport, England. This choir went on to record "There's no one quite like Grandma" which reached number 1 in the UK. The choir also featured actress Sally Lindsay who played Pub Landlady Shelley in Coronation Street, the world's longest continuing TV drama series (or "Soap")

  • Jane from Austin, Txreuben, i secretly think you like this song. LOL

    i think this is one of their best songs.
  • Reuben from Amsterdam, NetherlandsI like a lot of Abba songs, but this has a high annoyance level to me, caused by the melody that refuses to leave my head and the moralistic lyrics.
  • Alefiyah from Muscat, Othersuch a sweet and nice song, just love it!
  • Cyberpope from Richmond, CanadaDidn't Nana Mouskouri write this one?
    How come songfacts.com has no facts or songs for Nana Mouskouri?
