  • I close my eyes and I can see
    The world that's waiting up for me
    That I call my own
    Through the dark, through the door
    Through where no one's been before
    But it feels like home

    They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
    They can say, they can say I've lost my mind
    I don't care, I don't care, so call me crazy
    We can live in a world that we design

    'Cause every night I lie in bed
    The brightest colors fill my head
    A million dreams are keeping me awake
    I think of what the world could be
    A vision of the one I see
    A million dreams is all it's gonna take
    A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

    There's a house we can build
    Every room inside is filled
    With things from far away
    The special things I compile
    Each one there to make you smile
    On a rainy day

    They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
    They can say, they can say we've lost our minds
    I don't care, I don't care if they call us crazy
    Runaway to a world that we design

    Every night I lie in bed
    The brightest colors fill my head
    A million dreams are keeping me awake
    I think of what the world could be
    A vision of the one I see
    A million dreams is all it's gonna take
    A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

    However big, however small
    Let me be part of it all
    Share your dreams with me
    You may be right, you may be wrong
    But say that you'll bring me along
    To the world you see
    To the world I close my eyes to see
    I close my eyes to see

    Every night I lie in bed
    The brightest colors fill my head
    A million dreams are keeping me awake
    A million dreams, a million dreams
    I think of what the world could be
    A vision of the one I see
    A million dreams is all it's gonna take
    A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

    For the world we're gonna make Writer/s: Benj Pasek, Justin Paul
