I dreamed I walked in heaven, just the other night
There was so much beauty, so much light

Don't You Wish It Was True
 
 

I dreamed I walked in heaven just the other night
There was so much beauty, so much light
Don't you wish it was true
Don't you wish it was true

An angel took my hand, said you don't have to hurry
Got all the time in the world, don't worry
Don't you wish it was true
Lord, don't you wish it was true

But if tomorrow everybody was your friend
Anyone could take you in
No matter what or where you've been
But if tomorrow everybody had enough
The world wasn't quite so rough
Lord, don't you wish it was true

He said the world's gonna change and it's starting today
There'll be no more armies, no more hate
Don't you wish it was true
Ah, don't you wish it was true

And all the little children who live happily
There'll be singing and laughter, sweet harmony
Don't you wish it was true
Lord, Don't you wish it was true

But if tomorrow everybody under the sun
Was happy just living as one
No borders or battles to be won
But if tomorrow everybody was your friend
Happiness would never end
Lord, don't you wish it was true

Alright

But if tomorrow everybody under the sun
Was happy just to live as one
No borders or battles to be won
But if tomorrow everybody was your friend
Happiness would never end
Lord, don't you wish it was true

Lord, don't you wish it was true

Alright
What a beautiful day

Lyrics by John Fogerty.
