Lyrics
My son was only three when he looked up at me He said Daddy I had a dream last night I was lying in my bed and there beside my head A puppy dog was playing in the light He looked up at me and clearly as can be He said I'm yours to love and hold I am only small, but I am growing tall Do people still dream when they get old. Just the other day I heard a woman say When I win the lottery I'll tell you what I'll do I'll have a new car, a swimming pool out in the yard And, oh yes, I'll buy one for you too I can feel my lucky day is surely on the way And then she walked off in the cold With a quickened pace and a smile upon her face People still dream when they get old. You've gotta have a dream, something to believe in Something onto which you can hold A dream will see you thru when you're down and feeling blue People still dream when they get old. Sometimes I lie awake in my bed and take Account of the blessings I have known I count them one by one and before the night is done I see how much mercy I've been shown How could I ask for more and what is this life for There are people who are hungry and are cold And I dream of a day when love will find a way People still dream when they get old. And I dream of a world where every boy and girl Can grow up in peace and harmony And I dream of a time when the crippled and the blind Can walk on their own and can see And I dream of a place where color, creed and race Will not be the measure of the love we hold And when I turn out the light I dream this every night Yes, people still dream when they get old.
