    "Dream Street" Lyrics

    Janet Jackson

    And a bus comes in on the hollywood freeway in the dark
    A face catches sight of home, though at this spirited town
    Such a beating of the heart and a hope deep down inside
    They say the streets are paved with gold
    But it sure looks kind of cold outside

    Steppin' on the sidewalk with the stars beneath her feet
    Just a handful of tourists, is all she's bound to meet
    So tough to find a room and it takes more than a day
    And it's not too nice and the price is high
    Somehow she can't help but cry
    In a world full of fantasies, reality can hurt

    It's about the fiction, the odds won't go with her on

    Dream street, dream street
    Will it all come true? will it all just fade away
    Dream street, dream street

    Well, it's hard to find and
    It won't let hope escape from dream street

    A year goes by, and the situation she can't stand
    Came to be an actress, but a waitress is all she lands
    Her colleague smiles at her through the wrinkles of her face
    She came here too, with the self-same goals
    She never got out of this place

    She makes her mind up, she's gonna leave that very night
    It's been so long now since she's felt that good inside
    She calls the service line, there's a message in there for her
    She's gotta star in a movie part, suddenly it's all worthwhile
    Oh a little bit closer now, but really still too far
    Is it always out of reach, that bright and shiny star of

    Repeat chorus
