PROMISE: Listen, I had a dream and I don't dream often But I seen Martin with a million men in the streets marching It's new to me, it's usually me and gravity and I keep falling falling So I'm glad to be on my feet walking Huh, the block got hot, right before I thought he woulda got shot He dodged it, guess God wanted him to keep talking talking He said “I had a dream, but it wasn't for me Promise When I leave all this, I'm gonna need unique artists artists To grab the mic, and speak knowledge Wrap it tight, and reach targets in these markets" I agreed, he took me under his care Under his wing, treated me like one of his heirs Though I promised him not a thing 'Cause I can only be me, I'm not a king That's when I woke up, rose up to another ring Soaked up, trying to close up, back to sleep so I can have another dream CHORUS (x2) – YONATAN WATTS: I had a dream, I knew I could be all I could be But they keep on watching me Streets keep calling me Life ain't really all that it seems so I live in my dreams DAN-E-O: I had this weird perspective, my spot no one detected The man was militant, intelligent and introspective You could tell he commanded the crowd up from his podium Somehow his words, before he said 'em, I felt I was knowing 'em But I could hear somebody planning a violent assault Something to the effect of giving his rifle a call Can't wait 'til he stifle and fall, this will silence 'em all Revealing his evil unknowingly to a fly on the wall Got my back buzzing, knowing what the plot would be Flew by the man's ear, ensuring he'd take a swat at me At that moment, his motion made him painlessly twist Both the man's fist and the bullet simultaneously missed It would have been a wreck, it hit me that within a sec An insect had just interjected to prevent a death Woke up from the dream too early to witness the outcome Last thing I heard was “thank God that shot missed Malcolm!” CHORUS (x2) – YONATAN WATTS: I had a dream, I knew I could be all I could be But they keep on watching me Streets keep calling me Life ain't really all that it seems so I live in my dreams WORDSWORTH: My dream's now reality, means for my salary A star in the galaxy, a fiend's a fatality Toronto, Opera House screams from the balcony From Brooklyn, now I'm being see out in Calgary Had to fight fair to gain fame in the mainstream Made my career, represent what my name means Thought I was light years from being on the stage scene Eighteen, had nightmares while I daydreamed My man Sono seen greatness in me That people would later envy, made many fake be friendly Everyone sleepwalking but counting sheep's costing Time, wide awake don't sleep often When I do have my eyes shutted, I'm reminded About the demise of brothers that has the skies flooded It's real that dreams come true, you seeing me means I'm due Don't let 'em take your dream from you, I had a dream CHORUS (x2) – YONATAN WATTS: I had a dream, I knew I could be all I could be But they keep on watching me Streets keep calling me Life ain't really all that it seems so I live in my dreams
