Every thought is a dream, rushing by in a stream, Bringing life to our kingdom of doing Take a ride in the sky, on our ship Fantasy All your dreams will come true, miles away Our voices will ring together until the twelfth of never, We all, will live now forever, as one Come to see, victory in a land called fantasy, Loving life, for you and me, to behold, to (through?) your soul in ecstasy You will find, other kind, that has been in search of you, Many lives has brought you to Recognize it’s your life, now in review And as you glide (fly?), in your stride with the wind, as you fly away Give a smile, from your lips, and say I am free, yes I’m free, now I’m on my way You will find, other kind, that has been in search of you, Many lives has brought you to Recognize it’s your life, now in review
