MUSIC FOR STEEM WEEK 13 - @esouthern3 and @cmp2020 “A Million Dreams”

We’re back! This week, our selection is “A Million Dreams” from the movie musical The Greatest Showman.

Choosing the Song

I really love all of the music from The Greatest Showman (the movie itself is a bit…underwhelming). The songs were written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, a songwriting duo known for writing the songs in Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen. As much as I love “This Is Me” and “Rewrite the Stars” and, well, all of the other songs, I found that “A Million Dreams” would be the best pick for me and @cmp2020.

I close my eyes and I can see
The world that's waiting up for me
That I call my own
Through the dark, through the door
Through where no one's been before
But it feels like home

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say I've lost my mind
I don't care, I don't care, so call me crazy
We can live in a world that we design

'Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

There's a house we can build
Every room inside is filled
With things from far away
The special things I compile
Each one there to make you smile
On a rainy day

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say we've lost our minds
I don't care, I don't care if they call us crazy
Runaway to a world that we design

Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

However big, however small
Let me be part of it all
Share your dreams with me
You may be right, you may be wrong
But say that you'll bring me along
To the world you see
To the world I close my eyes to see
I close my eyes to see

Every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake
A million dreams, a million dreams
I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

For the world we're gonna make

About the Song

“A Million Dreams” is the second song in the soundtrack. The young P.T. Barnum begins the song, singing to his future wife Charity Hallett. He is of a lower economic class, but has big dreams of success. The song progresses through a montage of Barnum’s and Charity’s lives together, including their marriage and having two children. The adult Barnum is played by Hugh Jackman and adult Charity by Michelle Williams.
