  • Not so long ago we were so in phase
    You and I could never forget the days
    But then the fire seemed to flicker
    Cold wind came and it carried us away
    But we'll get back someday, baby

    The dream is still alive
    Look here in my eyes
    Can you see what I'm feeling?
    The dream is still alive
    The one of you and I
    And my heartache is healing
    I couldn't let it die
    No I knew it would survive
    The dream is still alive

    Not so long ago in a purple haze
    People dreamed out loud they were not afraid
    They stopped the war but not the dying
    Some got a little bit lost along the way
    But somehow we're here today (And we say..)

    The dream is still alive
    After all this time
    The flame keeps on burning
    The dream is still alive
    The one of you and I
    And my heartache is healing
    I couldn't let it die
    No I knew it would survive
    The dream is, the dream is still alive

    Oh yeah..
    The dream is still alive
    Look here in my eyes
    Can you see what I'm feeling
    The dream is still alive
    The one of you and I
    And my heartache is healing
    I couldn't let it die
    For all the times we tried
    The dream is still alive
