I’ve a hundred thousand dreams, and just only one life to live.
Oh Lord, I need a life to spare, can you please give?
Is it only an extra life that you need, the kind Lord asked me
I beg for my love to share my life and live my dreams with me.
The Lord smiled and asked me to come sit by
Tell me your dreams, now don’t cry
What is it that you want to share with him?
Be happy and tell me, don’t look so grim
Oh! Where do I start, and what all do I tell??
I smiled at God, as the tears still fell
I want to be a part of his laughter and tears
Share his joys, his dreams, his hopes and his fears
I want to hold hands with him on the beach
Climb mountains so high where the stars I can reach
Cross the fields and watch the birds fly so high
Laugh and love under the wide open sky
Snuggled in his arms watch movies at night
Hear music and songs under a starry night
Talk to him a hundred million things
Give my thoughts and dreams wide wings
Hug him close after a long and hard day
I would love him so much, oh what can I say
Lord do you know, he would speak with his eyes
Have you seen him do that, it’s really so nice.
We would fight and be annoyed with one another
But then would love and make-up like no other
We would face the rough and smooth alike together
When we had each other, why look further?
I can listen to his silences for hours and days
For even in quiet there’s a lot he says
Oh Lord please give me just one more life to live
See Oh Lord… there’s so much I can give.
The Lord smiled at me as I wiped my eyes
Let me check my child whether I have extra lives
I will give you one to live your dreams through
And of course the one you love, so true
I laughed and hugged the Lord like a friend
What a great way for the day to end
Let me wait for the time when my dreams come true
Let me wait for the time I will live with you.
