“People Have The Power”

Writer(s): Patti Smith, Fred Smith (See the article-People have the power)

I was dreamin’ in my dreamin’

Of an aspect bright and fair

And my sleepin’ it was broken

But my dream it lingered near

In the form of shinin’ valleys

Where the pure air recognized

Oh, and my senses newly opened

And I awakened to the cry

And the people have the power

To redeem the work of fools

From the meek the graces shower

It’s decreed the people rule

People have the power

People have the power

People have the power

People have the power

Vengeful aspects became suspect

And bending low as if to hear

Well, and the armies ceased advancin’

Because the people had their ear

And the shepherds, the soldiers

And they laid among the stars

Exchanging visions, layin’ arms

To waste in the dust

In the form of shinin’ valleys

Where the pure air recognized

And my senses newly opened

And I awakened to the cry

People have the power

People have the power

People have the power

People have the power

Where there were deserts, I saw fountains

Like cream the waters rise

And we strolled there together

With none to laugh or criticize

There is no leopard and the lamb

And lay together truly bound

Well I was hopin’ in my hopin’

To recall what I had found

Well I was dreamin’ in my dreamin’

God knows a pure view

As I lay down into my sleepin’

And I commit my dream with you

People have the power

People have the power

People have the power

People have the power

The power to dream, to rule

To wrestle the earth from fools

But it’s decreed the people rule

But it’s decreed the people rule

Listen, I believe everythin’ we dream

Can come to pass through our union

We can turn the world around

We can turn the earth’s revolution

We have the power

People have the power

People have the power

People have the power

The power to dream, to rule

To wrestle the earth from fools

But it’s decreed the people rule

But it’s decreed the people rule

We have the power

We have the power

People have the power

We have the power
