Very little known fact... This song was part of a trio which incluedes Kiss of Love and When We Lie that were all written on the same day. I cannot really point to a solid reason, but heartbreak seems to add to creativity at times.

lyrics

Our Dreams

When we were growing up
We wanted to become
The special people
In this lonely, broken place

And after all the years have gone
Only a few of us
Ever reached our goals
Some of us are still trying hard

Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream
Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream

Our ambitions are sacred to us
They keep us moving forward in our lives
You don't have the right to make it die in us
You don't have the right to destroy

Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream
Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream

To the governments of the world
To greed, to anger
To war, to hatred
To racism, to religion
To disease, to destruction
To the bombs, to confusion
To reality, to the jealousy
To the governments of the world

Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream
Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream

That's all we wanted was to have our dream
That's all we wanted was to have our dream

Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream
Do you know?
That's all we wanted was to have our dream

That's all we wanted was to have our dream

Claude S. (1990)
