Lyrics of My Future isn’t a Dream
Do you bow your head in the sun like me
Hard working quietly in streaming sweat
Do you like me, even being treated indifferently
Still don’t want to give up your desire life
Do you busy whole day like me to pursuit,
pursuit a tenderness that you can’t think of
Do you ever adrift like mehover at crossroads again and again
Because I don’t care what people say
I have never forgotten mypromise to myself,
my attachment to love
I know, my future isn’t a dream
I seriously live every minuteMy future isn’t a dream
My heart beats with hope,
My future isn’t a dream
I seriously live every minute
My future isn’t a dream
My heart beats with hope
Beats with hope
