"I Have A Dream" as written by Benny Goran Bror Andersson and Bjoern K. Ulvaeus....
I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream, I have a dream

I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality
And my destination makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness still another mile
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream, I have a dream
I'll cross the stream, I have a dream

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream, I have a dream
I'll cross the stream, I have a dream

    My InterpretationI'm sure this song has a much deeper meaning than most people seem to think.
    If you believe in angels, it follows that you believe in life after death. Crossing the stream is a euphemism for dying, like 'crossing over', 'going over to the other side', etc. It comes from Greek mythology - the river Styx. ('Stream' rhymes with 'dream', but 'river' doesn't!)
    Also several hymns talk about 'the narrow stream that divides us', or a similar phrase.
    Spiritual people also talk about the way that in our dreams we sometimes travel to the spirit world and meet our loved ones that have gone ahead of us. But, like the effect of the river Styx, we mostly forget what has happened when we awake, just as we forget our life in spirit when we incarnate on earth.
    I believe that we die when the time is right for us, be it sooner or later. Our soul knows when this is, but our physical self doesn't - usually. Hope this helps.
