Carey, Mariah - Right To Dream Lyrics




I lay awake sometimes
Scared to close my eyes
And I wonder where I left myself
And lost the will to fight

And the night melts into morning
Still it's cold beneath the sun
'Cause the fire in me is languishing
And I'm too frozen to run

And every once in a while
There's a distant glimmer of hope
I find somewhere deep inside
Someone strong still resides
And I know she's gonna be fine in time

'Cause, you see
I've got a lot to dream
There's more than this for me

An angel lands with broken wings
He warms me with his eyes
And the ice that's sheathed around my heart
Unravels as he smiles

See I grew up locked in sorrow
So I learn to block the pain
But I won't give up tomorrow
'Cause I've come to life again

And every once in a while
There's a distant glimmer of hope
I find somewhere deep inside
Someone strong still resides
And I know I'm gonna be fine, that's right

'Cause, for real
I've got a right to dream
There's more than this for me

But I keep goin' 'cause every once in a while
There's a distant glimmer of hope
I find somewhere deep inside
Someone strong still resides
And I know she's gonna be fine in time

'Cause, you see
I've got a right to dream
There's more than this for me

Carey, Mariah Right To Dream Comments
  1. Giorgi Maisuradze

    Love Mariah's songs. Even the saddest ones are full of hope.

  2. Dream High

    There are people who can sing really well but Mariah is just simply on another level. Not to mention her ability to touch people's hearts with her genius lyrics. Honestly speaking, the only songs that can make me cry are only hers.

  3. Jan Gutierrez

    i thought this isn't an original song of hers.

    xejelah

    It is. It was up for review for a possible nomination, but didn't make the cut in the end. She did do a cover of help me make it through the night.

    Jan Gutierrez

    @xejelah idk but i when i heard this song i already knew the lyrics so i thought this is a cover or something.

    AnoniemAmsterdam

    @xejelah it deserved a nomination at least. Underrated

  18. Luc Praslan

    She don't play guitar 👎👎

    Ed Armas

    Luc Praslan it’s called a movie. People often do things they don’t normally do in the real world

    Abhishek Gurung

    @Ed Armas 😂😂😂

    xejelah

    Yes, she does. This is live. She flew in Willy Nelson to teach her and help her get into the character for the Country girl she's playing. News reporters and Nashville was going nuts during her recording, they were surprised it was all live and demanded encores even when they stopped filming.

  19. Anto Anto

    Masterpiece !

  20. N G

    Is this a movie

  21. Clover Reiss

    2:46 I thought she's going to hit "but I keep on staying STAY THE NIIIIGHHHHHT"

    Stream With You By Mariah Carey.

    I know right 😂

  22. Queen Yihwa

    2:47 sounded like Stay the night high notes. The part when she was sangin' "And I keep on sayin'" G5 notes.

    Stream With You By Mariah Carey.

    I know right 😂

  23. Sandra Jovic

    Who else thought it was Sheryl Crow in the thumbnail?

  24. momo lovestar

    I love this her songs touch your soul I don't know what my life would be like without my Mariah Music its giving me Hope ,Peace,Joy its been my best friends at times

  25. Andre Marcos

    mariah carey.... country muito bom.

  26. Jason V.

    Could have easily competed for an Academy Award.

    Veronica E

    I agree....

  27. liat p:

    Omg why it's over? I need 10 more hours of this.

  28. makhzan abdullah

    a legend!!!!

  29. DEK TRAN

    terrible guitarist

    Jim Walden

    You do realize that nobody on stage was really playing right? It was all done to a track playing through the monitors on stage. Mariah Carey wasn't even singing. The guitarist that you hear was a studio guitarist.

    esteban rada

    It's for people like you that the shampoo have instructions .-.

    Jim Walden

    People like who???

    esteban rada

    @Jim Walden Dek Tran ofc I mean is obvios that she is not playing the guitar, that is how the movies work .-.

    xejelah

    @Jim Walden Yes, this was live. It was an acoustic set. This is an Indy movie, not a commercial film. They go for authenticity. She's singing live and playing live. Unless you're blind or deaf you can see/hear another guitarist there. She's not the only one playing. Nashville did an entire news segment on it.

  30. Mahesh Govindarajan

    One of her underrated songs

    Giorgi Maisuradze

    One of her HUNDREDS OF underrated songs

  31. baddie

    Is this from any movie?

    Zaya Heffenger

    It's called "Tennessee"

  32. Faisal Rifal

    What A Voice She's Still Got It, Nobody Can Deny That She Paved The Way For All The Girls Out There Untill These Freaking Days....

  33. Brian Elmer

    I lay awake sometimes
    Scared to close my eyes
    And I wonder where I left myself
    I lost the will to fly

    And the night melts into morning
    Still it's cold beneath the sun
    'Cause the fire in me's languishing
    And I'm too frozen to run

    Every once in a while
    There's a distant glimmer of hope
    I find
    Somewhere deep inside
    Someone strong still resides
    And I know she's gonna be fine
    In time
    'Cause you see
    I've got a lot to dream
    There's more than this for me

    An angel lands with broken wings
    Warms me with his eyes
    And the ice that sheaths around my heart
    Unravel as he smiles

    See I grew up locked in sorrow
    So I learned to block the pain
    But I won't give up tomorrow
    'Cause I've come to life again

    Every once in a while
    There's a distant glimmer of hope
    I find
    Somewhere deep inside
    Someone strong still resides
    And I know I'm gonna be fine
    That's right
    'Cause for real
    I've got a right to dream
    There's more than this for me

    But I keep on going 'cause

    Every once in a while
    There's a distant glimmer of hope
    I find
    Somewhere deep inside
    Someone strong still resides
    And I know she's gonna be fine
    In time
    'Cause you see
    I've got a right to dream
    There's more than this for me

  34. The Funny Side Up

    This touched my soul and made me cry. I couldn't help think of a lot of my friends who are undocumented and being really mistreated by the corrupt government. I dedicate this to all the dreamers in the USA. ❤️
