"Light of a Thousand Smiles" as written by and James M. Peterik....
When I would concentrate with all my might
I could imagine, I would imagine
That I was standing in the spotlight

And if I close my eyes very tight
A crystal vision, a premonition
Would find me shining underneath those hot lights

And I'd daydream in school with far away eyes
Living the words of the radio songs
Making my plans someday to take the stage
With a rock and roll band

And I would play in the light of a thousand smiles
(And the sound would be heard for a thousand miles)
Spreading through the towns and fields of America, America

And I would demonstrate, every night
My plan of action, the crowd reaction
I'd have 'em standing, in the front row

With my air guitar and only my imagination
We'd rock the nation the main attraction
In the rock and roll show

And I'd daydream in school with far away eyes
Living the words of the radio songs
Making my plans someday to take the stage
With a rock and roll band

And I would play in the light of a thousand smiles
(And the sound would be heard for a thousand miles)
Spreading through the towns and fields of America, America

And time goes by some grew weary
It's hard to keep that dream alive
Oh, alive

But love and music, keeps me goin'
I know that somehow I'll survive
Ooh, I'll survive

And I'd daydream in school with far away eyes
Living the words of the radio songs
Making my plans someday to take the stage
With a rock and roll band

And I would play in the light of a thousand smiles
Spreading through the towns, spreading through the fields
Taking to the streets of America

Spreading through the towns, spreading through the fields
Taking to the streets of America
Spreading through the towns, spreading through the fields
Taking to the streets of America
