my dream, my dream, my dream when l was still young is to fly fly over the rainbow
My dream when l was still young is to fly fly fly over the mountains
My dream when l was still young

In this dream, this is our time
In this dream, we rise like birds
And as we rise, we cast no shadow
We light the world with this dream we hold in our hands

My dream when l was still young 
My dream when I'm walking
My dream when I'm sleeping
Why don't you think the way I'm thinking, even though we have different minds
Help me to achieve my dream

In this dream, there is a forest
And through these woods, there is a path
And on this path, there is a crossroads
And the road you choose will change your life forever
And the road you choose from here shows the way of your heart

…is to fly fly fly over the rainbow
…fly fly fly over the mountains my dream when l was still young
