Lyrics of The Dream

English, Croatian (Original)

I have a dreamA dream as beautiful as it is extremeI know it’s not as crazy as it may seemSo I don’t ever wanna give up on this dream
Open your heartAnd you'll arrive at where the dream has to startTo pull a world together out of the partsAnd turn this war into a hopeful work of art
We have lived the darkest nightWaiting for The dayNow the time for us is rightTo arise and say
I dream of loveYou dream of loveAngels of GodWe all dream of loveWe all dream of love
Svijetu nisi dužan tiNišta donijetiJedino si čovjek kad Možeš voljeti
Kao herojKao herojI moj i tvojLjubav je herojLjubav je heroj
