I've got a dream about an angel on the beach, and the perfect waves are starting to come
Her hair is flying out in ribbons of gold, and her touch, she's got the power to stun
I've got a dream about an angel in the forest, enchanted by the edge of a lake
Her body's glowing in the jewels of light, and the earth blow is starting to shake
But I don't see any angels in the city, I don't hear any holy choir sing!
And if I can't get an angel, I can still get a girl
And a girl will be the next best thing, the next best thing to an angel!
A girl will be the next best thing....
I've got a dream 'bout a girl in a castle, and she's dancing like a cat on the stairs
She's got the fire of a goddess in her eyes, and the thunder of a drum in her ears.
I've got a dream about a girl on a star, looking down upon the rim of the world
She's there all alone, and dreaming of someone like me
I'm not an angel but at least I love her
These lyrics are not originally mine. I changed some of the lyrics around so that the song could be potentially sung by a man, as this song, and the original lyrics, were meant to be sung by a woman.
The original song is Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young, written by Jim Steinman, for the group Fire Inc., for the movie Streets Of Fire.
I take no credit at all for anything related to the song, and this is just something I wanted to do, because I really love the song.
