The day the dream was silenced

 

40 years ago today, April 4th 1968, is an ink black day in history. Today, 40 years ago, is the day when Dr. Luther King was shot and killed in Memphis. Elvis, on location for a new movie, was very touched by the murder and would later that year record the message song "If I Can Dream". If you visit Memphis, be sure to visit the Civil Rights Museum for a behind-the-scenes look of what happened that dreadful day, 40 years ago.

If I Can Dream

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere.

Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue.

If I can dream of a better land,

where all my brothers walk hand in hand.

Tell me why, oh why,

oh why can't my dream come true?

Oh why?



There must be peace and understanding sometime.

Strong winds of promise that will blow away

all the doubt and fear.

If I can dream of a warmer sun,

where hope keeps shining on everyone.

Tell me why, oh why,

oh why won't that sun appear?



We're lost in a cloud

with too much rain.

We're trapped in a world

that's troubled with pain.

But as long as a man

has the strength to dream

he can redeem his soul

and fly...



Deep in my heart there's a trembling question.

Still I am sure, that the answer's

gonna come somehow.

Out there in the dark,

there's a beckoning candle, yeah.



And while I can think, while I can talk.

While I can stand, while I can walk.

While I can dream.

Please let my dream come true...

Right now.
