I Had a Dream


A great man had a dream
Ending in a murder scene
And I’m not such a man
Never been so brave or grand

But little one
I had a dream
About a nation that became

A dazzling sky
The heroes of youth

A burning ache
Resurrecting Truth

My dreamy one
I had a dream
About a nation that became

A guiding hand
Wipes the greed away

A whistle blown
Digs corruption’s grave

My dreamy one
I had a dream
About a nation that became

A jasmine wind
Turns the air so sweet

A cleansing spring
Washes stained elites

Oh, little one
I had a dream
About a nation that became

A brilliant star
‘Bove a poor man’s house

A treasure chest
Let the magic out

My dreamy one
I had a dream
Oh, dreamy one, Oh, dreamy one
I had a dream

This shadow of a man
Had a dream he can’t forget
A shadow with a dream
A nation changed, a nation blessed

And let us sing

Lux et Veritas…Victoria
Let’s make our dreams come true

Lux et Veritas…Victoria
And the dream begins with you

Oh, dreamy one
I had a dream
A nation changed, a nation blessed

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
