Lyrics Show Them The Way – Stevie Nicks

Please God, show ’em the way
Please God, on this day
Spirits all given the strength
Peace can come if you really want it

I had a fragile dream in a gray house in the Hamptons
I’d been there before, singing songs and doing benefits
Was in a room alone putting on my makeup
Like so many things that come to me
The dress came across the Persian carpet

As I fell into the dress, a thought came to me
Into my heart, I have a dream
And a door opened, I turned to face the music
I was ready for the Kennedys

I don’t know if it was 1960 or 1963
Everything was timeless, even me
I wasn’t old, I wasn’t young
I was just part of their dream
A shadow walked with me down the hall
It was Martin Luther King
All in shadow, all before me, overwhelmed by
Destiny, someone said, Sing us a Song
There’s a piano, and handed me a drink
The room was full of hope
A song would set them free

And I said, please God, show ’em the way
Please God, on this day
Spirits all given the strength
Peace can come if you really want it

I sat at the piano
Stared out of the shadows
I sang the words, I have a dream
He wasn’t my old friend John
I didn’t know him then
But he smiled at me
And I sang these words
Whatever it takes
Whatever it takes to be free

No, I didn’t know these men
But they knew me
It was all symbolic
Nothing was as it seemed
They all left us in a single shot
But they didn’t take the dream
They were there in that house
Discussing the future
And drinking champagne
I was just a piano player
The voice, part of their dream

I was thirty five and maybe I was fifteen
It was just another night
In the presence of Martin Luther King
I was just a dreamer
I was ready for the Kennedys

And I said, please God, show ’em the way
Please God, on this day
Light the fire, start it over
Tell the world about the dream
Start it up and make it real

Please God
Show him the way
Please God
Show her the way
Please God
Show them the way
Please God

Back in the room where it all began
My heart began to heal, I believe it
I remember the beauty of the Hamptons
Shadows playing in the sun
A voice said, the dream is not over, no
The dream has just begun
I spun around to see another shadow
Slipping through the door
And my eyes opened wide
What is this all for
And the shadow said
Don’t forget it, don’t forget
What we were fighting for
Don’t forget it

And I said
Please God, show ’em the way
It’s just another night
Please God, on this day
Martin Luther King
Spirits all given the strength
Sing us a song
Peace can come if you fight for it
Don’t forget it

Think we’re just in time to say
Ooh, and said, oh said
Please God, show ’em the way
All in shadow
Please God, on this day
All before me
Spirits all given the strength
Peace сan come if you fight for it
Think we’re just in time to say this
Set them free
Room was full of hope

Please God, show ’em the way
I believe it
Please God, on this day
Don’t forget it
Spirits all given the strength
Don’t forget what
We were fighting for
Think we’re just in time to say

Peace can come if you fight for it
Peace can come if you try harder
Peace can come
Ooh, if you really want it

The dream
Don’t forget it, please God
Show them the way…
