Songwriters: Al Jarreau, Tom Canning, Jay Graydon
Performers: Al Jarreau
Al Jarreau started releasing albums in the 70s and is still going strong today. He's won 7 Grammy's thus far, traveled the world with his music, and been named by Time Magazine as "the greatest jazz singer alive." He's even been granted a star on the Hollywood Boulevard.
This song comes from his 1981 Breakin' Away album, the same one that contains his big hit We're In This Love Together. The album won him two of his Grammys (Best Male Pop Vocalist and Best Male Jazz Vocalist).
This particular song is not available in sheet music form, at least in my searches. But if you come across it, please let me know!
There's a land where lovers dream,
Where poets dwell.
We can sail tomorrow.
There is always room for one
Who wishes well.
There are doubters who
will be welcome too.
When you can't afford the fare,
There's a wish to borrow.
Our love, we must never doubt it.
Our love, when you think about it.
Love like ours will live a thousand years.
Yes,I know you've heard the story
And you're uninspired.
Still, a walk without a wish
If you wish at all,
We can conquer all
Learn to walk and run again,
As we chase Goliath.
