You must have a hope to inspire you
You must have a path to pursue
You must have an object to work for
A plan and a purpose in view
You must have a sense of direction
Or lost you'll go drifting along
You must have a faith that will guide you
When life holds no light and no song
You must have a stake in the future
Though swiftly the years may depart
You'll always have something to live for
If you have a dream in your heart.
