Diana Krall - Don't Dream It's Over Lyrics




There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you'll never see the end of the road
While you're travelling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicions but there's no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the t.v. Page

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only the shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

  24. Cheyenne Agnes

    Il y a de la liberté, il y a de la liberté sans
    Essayez d'attraper le déluge dans une tasse de papier
    Il y a une bataille à venir, de nombreuses batailles sont perdues
    Mais vous ne verrez jamais la fin de la route
    Pendant que vous voyagez avec moi

    Hé maintenant, salut maintenant, ne rêve pas, c'est fini
    Hé maintenant, hey maintenant, quand le monde entre en jeu
    Ils viennent, ils viennent construire un mur entre nous
    Nous savons qu'ils ne gagneront pas
    Maintenant, je remorque ma voiture, il y a un trou dans le toit

    Mes possessions me causent des soupçons, mais il n'y a pas de preuve
    Dans l'article aujourd'hui, des histoires de guerre et de déchets
    Mais vous tournez à droite vers la page T.V.

    Hé maintenant, salut maintenant, ne rêve pas, c'est fini
    Hé maintenant, hey maintenant, quand le monde entre en jeu
    Ils viennent, ils viennent construire un mur entre nous
    Nous savons qu'ils ne gagneront pas

    Maintenant, je me promène au rythme d'un tambour
    Et je comptais les étapes à la porte de votre cœur
    Seules les ombres devant nettoyer le toit
    Apprenez à connaître le sentiment de libération et de soulagement

    Hé maintenant, salut maintenant, ne rêve pas, c'est fini
    Hé maintenant, hey maintenant, quand le monde entre en jeu
    Ils viennent, ils viennent construire un mur entre nous
    Nous savons qu'ils ne gagneront pas

    Ne les laissez pas gagner
    Hé maintenant, hey maintenant
    Hé maintenant
    Hé maintenant, hey maintenant
    Ne les laissez pas gagner
    Hé maintenant, hey maintenant
    Ne les laissez pas gagner
    Hé maintenant, hey maintenant

  25. Viveros Tampico

    excelente sonido como gotas de vino, una voz maravillosa sutil y armoniosa. Ilove you Diana

  26. Seth Allen

    weak...........

  27. Midnightrambler3760

    Boring...she killed a great song..bitch!!

  28. cesar varram

    I´ve heard good things about Diana, but this makes me love her

  29. shm vls

    what's the song tell about ?

  30. Garland Dotson

    I like the original, but love the way Diana put her style, touch and made it her own. I play this twice a day.

  31. Anglomik

    Like her jazz work much better

  32. Marky Mark

    this is really good

  33. Hawaii Loves Art

    too cold and emotionless

  34. Camel Tanker

    Truth be told I'm not all that impressed with this album. What happened to the Jazz? She is sounding like a female version of Perry Como. Are we now to call her Ms. Relaxation?

    Adrienne Lee

    The arrangement is pushing her.. she loses her laid back feel.. the arranger did NOT get her at all.. this could have been so goooooood..

  35. paul fraser

    such a great song. Beautiful rendition.

  36. Emmanuel A. Otiko

    Brings tears to my eyes.

    Diogenes Laertius

    Yes, quite.

  37. Sabra

    I've heard the Crowded House version a lot of times...but it wasn't until I heard Krall's version when I actually 'heard' the lyrics. Beautifully done....

  38. Sebastian Herth

    How much cheaper produced and corny music compared to some of her earlier jazz albums, no way...

  39. Janet Woo

    Already a fan, recommended by my Dad prior to his passing. Have your "Live in Paris" and "Quiet Nights" albums, but very joyful that your voice is so flexible for many genres--Like your Wallflower album. As soon as I land on a job, will purchase this. Interp. of my favorite Eagles' "I Can't Tell You Why" superb. Because of exposure to your album "Maybe You'll Be There" is one of my recent favorites (otherwise I wouldn't have known this song). Quite a match for Ol' Blue Eyes' Sinatra version, and also enjoy the subtleties of your "I've Got You Under My Skin."

    Diana Krall's voice is one of the best in our century--hard to beat like others have mentioned velvety, sultry and full low voice, so expressive! Ms. Krall deserve all the lauds and grammys you've earned. Met Clayton in a friend's (Custom dress/suit maker shoppe). Of course, he promo'd your music as well.

    May the Love of the Lord Jesus Christ/Blessings be with you, your Elvis C. and kids from an admiring vocals fan (and fantastic jazz piano too), who also is an admirer of jazz/ sacred music, rock, other.

    Hey now, hey now, don't dream it's over

    Don't let them win
    Hey now, hey now
    Hey now
    Hey now, hey now
    Don't let them win
    Hey now, hey now
    Don't let them win
    Hey now, hey now

    Charles Fichter

    Discover who Neil Finn is. We just lost Leonard Cohen, be grateful will still have perhaps the greatest lyricist and poet among us yet.

    Diogenes Laertius

    But the worst thing about it is...they are winning. It IS over. So dont dream. Thats what youve been doing for 50 years. How do you think we got here? Dreams are sometimes nightmares.

    Tom Kiss

    Huuuuuuhhhh :-)
    Thx :-)

  41. Le Genou de Claire

    I really enjoy this but perhaps a bit too theatrical and reminiscence of 80s David Foster. I wish it is pared down a bit to showcase Diana's sultry voice.

  42. Shinnysmilever

    my fave song from the album

  43. Liem Tran

    I like this song so much.... Don't dream it's over.

  46. NOAH KLEINSASSER

    this is terrible

  47. Adam Sukenick

    When I heard this I thought it was a guy. She has a deep voice.

    fortvna66

    +David Sukenick she is contralto, a type of classical female singing voice whose vocal range is the lowest female voice type. It is very rare.

    Mai Mai Mai

    fortvna66 Yes indeed I have that same type of contralto voice

  48. loik 8649

    the sleeve of the album is great you look sooooooo !!!! dont' dream it's over !!!!

  49. EraserHead777

    She has a good voice but in my opinion her style is too calm for the feelings expressed by the lyrics.  To me that style more portrays that it is over than it is not.

  50. loik 8649

    i love that song toooooooo!!!!!

  51. Kittenclaws Guitar Videos

    very original

  52. Antonio Serrano

    she is biotiful

  53. Antonio Serrano

    linda musica eu gosto pois tem voz

  54. itstheG

    Soul healing voice..

  55. Edward Costa

    Perfect voice....

  56. Valerie Ghent

    Lovely video, thanks so much for sharing. If you get a second, please come by my channel and take a listen my original songs. I hope you enjoy.

  57. Beto G.

    This sounds shockingly similar to "O" by Coldplay.

  58. Fernando Llancaman

    ademas de linda, es una exelente exponente del JAZZ sigamos escuchandola

  59. May Tan

    Very unique voice :)

  60. M.P.G. Luis Gerardo Padilla Gtz.

    Sergio, Gracias por compartir tan excelente álbum.

  61. Guillaume de Bourmont

    what a beautiful voice

  62. Hugh Martell

    I looooove this song and Diana covers it in a most unique way. Thank you Diana!

    John Perrott

    gsaugen you're an idiot.😂

    John Perrott

    Opinions are like a--holes, they all stink. Keep it to yourself.

    John Perrott

    gsaugen YouTube or not I stand by my original statement. Only an idiot would listen to an artist they don't like. Only a very angry person would denigrate others for enjoying that artist. You expressed an opinion, I stated a fact.

  63. kanoamy

    J'adore cet album!!!! Quelle voix sensuelle et que dire des arrangements musicaux!! Ai-je dit que j'adorais cet album??

  65. Barbarian Reaver

    I don't like this version as much as the original...not in a long shot. Still...this song...the lyrics, the sound...epic. It takes me back to when I was a kid growing-up in the 80s...best decade ever, and best years of my life. The lyrics speak to this era, and remind me to relish the memories of the past...of a better time with better music.

  66. Kuba Jand

    For first 8 seconds sounds entirely like "O" from Coldplay. Why not though .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4Qdt5032YQ

  67. ayşegül akdümbek

    Great voice,great songs,great album.Diana is a perfect jazz singer.

  68. knuckles kim

    It's crowded house's song !

  69. liteulnemo

    Great songs Great album. As great as Diana is. I love this album! I love her! It makes me think a bit  to Joni Mitchell's voice***  her songs and last albums. But let's stop comparing. They are both great artists. And both are unique.
    *** Not the one of her beginnings, of course !
