1. Dreams Part 1 (ESV)
Hold fast to dreams For if dreams die
2. Dreams Part 2 (ESV)
Life is a broken-winged bird That cannot fly.
3. Dreams Part 3 (ESV)
Hold fast to dreams For when dreams go
4. Dreams Part 4 (ESV)
Life is a barren field Frozen with snow.
5. All of Dreams (ESV)
Hold fast to dreams For if dreams die Life is a broken-winged bird That cannot fly. Hold fast to dreams For when dreams go Life is a barren field Frozen with snow.
6. Harlem Part 1 (ESV)
What happens to a dream deferred?
7. Harlem Part 2 (ESV)
Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?
8. Harlem Part 3 (ESV)
Or fester like a sore— And then run?
9. Harlem Part 4 (ESV)
Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over— like a syrupy sweet?
10. Harlem Part 5 (ESV)
Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode?
11. All of Harlem (ESV)
What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore— And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over— like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode?
