Peace dream

[Ringo Starr]

Last night I had a peace dream
You know how real dreams can be
The world was a better place for you and me
Can’t you see?
No need for war no more
Better things we’re fighting for
No more hunger
No more pain
I hope I have that dream again
Can you imagine
All of this coming true?
It’s really up to all of us to do
Just like John Lennon said
In Amsterdam from his bed
“One day the world will wake up to see
The reality”
Last night I had a peace dream
You know how real dreams can be
The world was a better place for you and me
Can’t you see?
No need for war no more
Better things we’re fighting for
No more hunger
No more pain
I hope the dream comes true someday
So try to imagine
If we give peace a chance
All the world could be living in harmony
One day or dream could be reality
Reality
Last night I had a peace dream
You know how real dreams can be
The world was a better place for you and me
(Try to imagine)
No need for war no more
(Try to imagine)
Better things we’re fighting for
No more hunger
No more pain
We’ll make our dream come true someday.

Anúncios

Há quem diga que todas as noites são de sonhos.
Mas há também quem garanta que nem todas, só as de verão.
No fundo, isto não tem muita importância.
O que interessa mesmo não é a noite em si, são os sonhos.
Sonhos que o homem sonha sempre,
Em todos os lugares,
Em todas as épocas do ano,
Dormindo ou acordado.

[William Shakespeare]

Não sou nada.
Nunca serei nada.
Não posso querer ser nada.
À parte isso, tenho em mim todos os sonhos do mundo.

[trecho de “Tabacaria”, de Álvaro de Campos]

When you cannot dream, you cannot sleep, you cannot even see
Others already looked and they have seen what they want you to see
When you cannot breathe, you cannot weep, you cannot even speak
Others already have and they have spoken what they would like you to speak

[Everyone is guilty]

Os sonhadores, sonhando com os anjos

Os sonhadores, sonhando com os anjos

E lá, onde os sonhos formavam-se
para nós dois – sonhos não muito diferentes
iam ficando guardados.
Vimos o mesmo sonho, e havia força nele,
como a chegada da primavera.

1965
