Gil Scott-Heron - Alien (Hold on to Your Dreams) Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Midnight near the border trying to cross the Rio Grande
  • Runnin' with coyotes to where the streets are paved with gold
  • You're diving underwater when you hear the helicopters
  • Knowing it's all been less than worthless if you run into patrols
  • Hiding in the shadows, so scared you want to scream
  • But you dare not make a sound if you want to hold on to your dreams
  • Hold on. Though it may not be a lot, you got to
  • Hold on. Cause you know it's all you got
  • No matter the consequences or the fear that grips your senses
  • You have got to hold on to your dreams.
  • City of the Angels with its bright light fascination
  • Only adds to the confusion that your mind must now endure
  • The gringos take advantage when they know that you're illegal
  • Bot you void la policía like a plague that can't be cured
  • Paying la mordida you find out just what pollo means
  • But you dare not file complaints if you want to hold on to your dreams
  • Hold on. Though it may not be a lot, you got to
  • Hold on. Cause you know it's all you got
  • No matter the consequences or the fear that grips your senses
  • You have got to hold on to your dreams.
  • Down at Western Union sending cash back to your family
  • Or drinking down cerveza where the lights are very low
  • Your mind may start to wander when you think about your village
  • Or the woman that you love so much who's still in Mexico
  • At just two bucks an hour there is little to redeem this life
  • Except that in your mind you're tryin' to hold on to your dreams
  • Hold on. Though it may not be a lot, you got to
  • Hold on. Cause you know it's all you got
  • No matter the consequences or the fear that grips your senses
  • You have got to hold on to your dreams.
