Song facts

Paul was doing the Grammys, so he came over to the house and was playing bass on ‘Peace Dream’. So I played him this other track [Walk With You] and Paul said, ‘Give me the headphones. Give me a pair of cans.’ And he went to the mic and he just invented that part where he follows on my vocal. That was all Paul McCartney, and there could be nothing better. He makes it bigger and he makes it fuller. It makes the song like a conversation between us, and that was Paul’s idea to do his part one beat behind me. That’s why he’s a genius and incredible bass player.

Lyrics

Last night I had a peace dream
You know how real dreams can be
The world was a better place
For you and me, can't you see?

No need for war no more
Better things we're fighting for
No more hunger, no more pain
I hope I have that dream again

Can you imagine all of this coming through?
It's really up to all of us to do
Just like John Lennon said in Amsterdam from his bed
"One day the world will wake up to see the reality"

Last night I had a peace dream
You know how real dreams can be
The world was a better place
For you and me, can't you see?

No need for war no more
Better things we're fighting for
No more hunger, no more pain
I hope the dreams comes true someday

So try to imagine
If we give peace a chance
All the world could be living in harmony
One day our dream could be reality, reality

Last night I had a peace dream
You know how real dreams can be
The world was a better place
For you and me

No need for war no more
Better things we're fighting for
No more hunger, no more pain
I hope the dreams comes true someday
