Look, see there, movement.
Everywhere improvement.
One-hundred-fifty million tongues, one clear voice!

From the land down under,
A song the sound of thunder,
Singing the dream to opening ears
All over the world!
There's a buzz in the air,
And the people from far and near
Have made a choice; the choice is clear!

Changing what it means to be blind,
Step by step one day at a time;
Still much to do but it shall be
That the sighted eyes of the world
Will be able to see.
And there will be changes.
The power of the dream.
Due diligence by you and me.
Changing what it means to be blind.

Women of every nation,
Are rising to the occasion,
To change humankind by movement and mind,
We shall be as one.
And what of youth and the children?
Empowerment is their freedom.
And we must convey by example so they can say,
"No big deal; I'm blind".
And the eyes of the earth,
Will acknowledge the person first,
Through our vision by knowing our worth!

Changing what it means to be blind,
Step by step one day at a time;
Still much to do but it shall be
That the sighted eyes of the world
Will be able to see.
And there will be changes.
The power of the dream.
Due diligence by you and me.

Changing what it means to be blind.

Many drops of rain grow forests,
And bring big mountains down;
Hands across all borders, boundaries and nations,
Take walls down.
Lift the veils, unfurl the sails.
New journeys will abound.
No one but ourselves can stop us now!

Changing what it means to be blind,
Step by step one day at a time;
Still much to do but it shall be
That the sighted eyes of the world
Will be able to see.
And there will be changes.
The power of the dream.
Due diligence by you and me.

Changing what it means to be blind.
Changing what it means to be blind.
Look, see there, movement!

The video above features Terry Kelly performing the title track of his album, The Power Of The Dream, which he wrote while attending (as an observer) the World Blind Union's Fifth General Assembly in Melbourne, Australia. The song is intended to encourage the people of the world with or without eyesight to review how we see ourselves; in short, that we might respect and celebrate our differences.
