Charted: 14 32
  • Every man has a place
    In his heart there's a space
    And the world can't erase his fantasies
    Take a ride in the sky
    On our ship fantasies
    All your dreams will come true right away

    And we will live together
    Until the twelfth of never
    Our voices will ring forever as one

    Every thought is a dream
    Rushing by in a stream
    Bringing life to your kingdom of doing
    Take a ride in the sky
    On our ship fantasies
    All your dreams will come true miles away

    Our voices will ring together
    Until the twelfth of never
    We all will love together as one

    Come to see victory
    In a land called fantasy
    Loving life a new degree
    Bring your mind to everlasting liberty

    As one
    Come to see victory
    In a land called fantasy
    Loving life for you and me
    To behold to your soul is ecstasy
    You will find other kind
    That has been in search of you
    Many lives have brought you to
    Recognize it's your life now in review

    As you stay for the play
    Fantasy has in store for you
    A glowing light will see you through
    It's your day shining day
    All your dreams come true

    As you glide in your stride
    With the wind as you fly away
    Give a smile from your lips and say
    Are you free yes I'm free
    And I'm on my way

  • Anonymous from Palm Desert CaI thought it was about reincarnation. Just love Fantasy.
  • Shawn from MarylandThank you EWF for giving me a desire to play a instrument. Which taught me that the best part of playing music is it releases stress and anxiety.
  • Kate From L.a. from Ft. Lauderdale, FlThis has always been my favorite EW&F song and yes, it does not get enough air play on any station. My guess is that the inherent spiritual message within is what turns the DJ hacks off. WTF?
  • Mike from Santa BarbaraThis is my favorite song by Earth, Wind, and Fire.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhMy favorite EW&F song that doesn't get nearly enough airplay on the oldies radio. The breathless way this is sung, along with the cadence of the words and the melody all lift this song to beautiful heights. The words are then echoed as the song continues, and giving it a mild sense of urgency, making you want to listen to the words, to contemplate what they are saying, to find this fantasy world. The final, soaring high vocals at the end are exquisite. Hines Ward danced to this when competing on Dancing With The Stars in 2011 with his dancing professional partner, Kym Johnson. Being from Steelers Country, I'm a big Hines fan, and was thrilled when "Fantasy" was chosen for their Samba. Hines ended up winning the show that season and taking home the mirror ball trophy.
