While choosing the next song to play for the 7pm Cheer last evening, we previewed “I Have a Dream” by the Swedish “supergroup” ABBA. It could not have been a better choice. I checked Lyric Interpretations.com about the song’s meaning, which is generally about coping. One anonymous individual interpreted the lyrics as beautiful, uplifting and encouraging:


“We’re going to get through this Coronavirus. We have a dream, a song to sing and we will cope. I believe in Angels! We all have a dream and we will cross the stream.”

The lyrics:


I have a dream, a song to sing

To help me cope with anything

If you see the wonder of a fairy tale

You can take the future even if you fail

I believe in angels

Something good in everything I see

I believe in angels

When I know the time is right for me

I’ll cross the stream, I have a dream

I have a dream, a fantasy

To help me through reality

And my destination makes it worth the while

Pushing through the darkness still another mile

I believe in angels

Something good in everything I see

I believe in angels

When I know the time is right for me

I’ll cross the stream, I have a dream

I’ll cross the stream, I have a dream

I have a dream, a song to sing

I printed the lyrics for neighbors to remember the words. Because we all need to dream.
