"The Dream" as written by Melvin Joe Sparkman, Marcus Deon Allen and Shaffer Smith....
(Harley Allen/Clive Westlake)

The plan I never had a lot but I had plans
They took me down the road to where I am
I know now I'd do it all again

The dream was always just a step ahead of me
Too far to touch but close enough to see
There was always somewhere else I had to be
The dream, there's nothing more important than the dream
Without one nothing matters much it seems
It always keeps me goin where the winds of doubts are blowin
What always keeps me goin is the dream

The song it takes too many years to write the song
Where every word is just where it belongs
You wonder why on earth it takes so long
You shine if only for the very shortest time
The latest thing in melody and rhyme
And in the end you'd give up your last dime for

The dream was always just a step ahead of me
Too far to touch but close enough to see
There was always somewhere else I had to be
The dream, there's nothing more important than the dream
Without one nothing matters much it seems
It always keeps me goin where the winds of doubts are blowin
What always keeps me goin is the dream

Oh, it always keeps me goin
When the winds of doubt are blowin
What always keeps me goin is the dream
