Dreamer: Ozzy Osbourne

Well, this is the emotional song from the solo album of Ozzy Osbourne featuring Rob Trujillo (Metallica) in bass guitars and Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society) in leads that pulled me into Ozzy's music. I just figured Trujillo and Wylde when watching back this video. This song is about Osbourne's dream of different world for better living and happiness of children. It carries an introspective about the sad state of the world.You can see in this video directed by Rob Zombie. Ozzy compares this to John Lennon's "Imagine," which contains the line, "You might say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one."  He tries to convey the message that God and Jesus have nothing to do with our fate - the power is within us to bring the real change.



Lyrics:


Gazing through the window at the world outside
Wondering will mother earth survive
Hoping that mankind will stop abusing her sometime


After all there's only just the two of us
And here we are still fighting for our lives
Watching all of history repeat itself
Time after time


I'm just a dreamer
I dream my life away
I'm just a dreamer
Who dreams of better days


I watch the sun go down like everyone of us
I'm hoping that the dawn will bring a sign
A better place for those Who will come after us ...
This time


I'm just a dreamer
I dream my life away oh yeah
I'm just a dreamer
Who dreams of better days


Your higher power may be God or Jesus Christ
It doesn't really matter much to me
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us
I'm living in a dream of fantasy
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah


If only we could all just find serenity
It would be nice if we could live as one
When will all this anger, hate and bigotry ...
Be gone


I'm just a dreamer
I dream my life away
Today
I'm just a dreamer
Who dreams of better days
Okay
I'm just a dreamer
Who's searching for the way
Today
I'm just a dreamer
Dreaming my life away
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
