A Nocturnal Dream

 

I am very happy

To see the setting sun

To close my eyes for awhile

And live in another place

 

CHORUS:

 Lift your voices everyone

Behold this special creation

Shining toward an endless horizon

Great creatures all around

 

I touch the peaceful earth

Not like our own back home

The colors brightly reflect

A hue not quite like our own

 

Africa is where Iíll be

Inside the great Pride Lands

Zimmerís music fills the sky

A special place to be

 

To see the lion approaching

Much different than the usual king

It is Simba, oh yes I can see

His courage brings him to me

 

Can this be real on earth?

Can one make the fictional real?

Quite so, and in a brilliant flash

I see Simba passing by.
