This is a kinda theme song for me, my 'Impossible Dream,' so to speak. From my younger years in the 60's until now, I have held onto - and will continue to hold onto - the belief that one day Love WILL reign supreme over all the evil and madness that seems to run amok on this Earth at this time; that Good will triumph over Evil in the end; that all injustice will end, and basically, as prophesied, that All Things will be made new.


I dreamed when I was young
Of a better world for all;
I tried to do my part,
And live as if to say
That love will reign one day.

They fought it from the start,
Said it could not be done,
That men would never change,
And there could be no way
That love would reign one day.

But I cannot accept,
Much less believe, we’re doomed to fail
So I fight on ‘til we prevail

I know some think me wrong;
“It’s foolish,” they may say;
“Listen: The evidence is strong:
The world has gone astray...”
But love WILL reign one day

They say “don’t be naïve;
They say, "Just open up your eyes…”
But I choose to believe
What all the prophets say
That Love will reign one day.

And I cannot accept,
Much less believe, we’re doomed to fail
So I fight on ‘til we prevail

I’m older and wiser now,
But this remains unchanged:
No matter what comes down,
What evil they create,
Or what they throw our way:

The light is sure to rise,
We’ll see it plain as day,
Shining in all eyes,
When Love has come to stay
