​If Dreams Had Wings

This song is by Dan Hill and appears on the album If Dreams Had Wings (1980).

You went to South America
Saw people starving in the streets
Just a kid from the suburbs
Trying to find out what life really means
Flew across the ocean
With your psychology degree
Travelled down the coastline
Hitching rides, collecting dreams

And if dreams had wings
You'd spend your whole life flying
If the sun meant hope
Light would shine on each horizon
But Paris seemed so dirty
You nearly drowned in all the rain
If dreams had wing
You'd be flying-flying away

Wired home for money
Somewhere in the south of Greece
Sang all night on some street corner
Till you were hassled by the police
Contemplated Africa
But there were just too many wars
Just a kid from the suburbs
No place to go anymore
No place left to dream anymore

And if dreams had wings
You'd spend your whole life flying
If the sun meant hope
Light would shine on each horizon
But Paris seemed so dirty
You nearly drowned in all the rain
If dreams had wings
You'd be flying-flying away

You went to South America
Saw people starving in the streets
