You know deep inside your heart..
Your soul..
Your mind..
That is something greater you deserve to find..

Something beyond the everyday..
Life we all lead..
Something beyond the norm..
Something great indeed..

You can feel it..
You can taste it..
Its so close..
you could grasp it..
But yet it seems so far away..

You wish you could see it..
Wish it was already here..
But yet you hold on..
Waiting for something better to come along..

But yet it seems so distant..
This gift of fate..
Don't much longer can you hold in..
How much longer must you wait?

For this gift of destiny?
This gift of fate,,
I am sure this something to which every dreamer can relate..
Lets hope our dreams come true before it's too late..

Before are done on this earth..
Before are time is through..
Surely this dream must come true..
Because I know d*mn well I have paid my dues..

You know you were destined for something greater..
Of that there is no doubt..
But as I wait patiently..
I want to scream..
I want to shout..

For this dream to finally come though..
For somethin greater for me an you..
For a life of proserity..
For a dream come true..
