Grammy Nominated Carolyn Malachi's "BEAUTIFUL DREAMER" is an inspiring account of overcoming incredible odds and living a passionate life. The stylish video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWaqdZENlVY) features the point of view of Niya Bell, a nine-year-old genius who escapes to a mystical wood after being bullied by her peers; and grown-up dreamers who work, live, and thrive in the real world. Niya and the dreamers' stories intertwine to reveal that a little encouragement and lots of faith can go a very long way.

Lyrics:

(Javier Starks)
Absurd how our hearts beat in sync… Off beat… like raindrops.
Nonstop, as if driven by the djembe, played by the hands of our ancestors, indeed their spirits run through us… “channels for vibrant souls.”
Your’s is brilliant, I feel it, distilled, concealed within a spark… GENIUS.
Without even thinking like the mind of a savant, you called, I became the messenger… your express mail/male.
Left an impression you were stamped to sail, but fear would never let her! I’ll address the issue, titled: Return To Sender…
My heart speaketh the words time had to reveal, still impatient living in imagination slave to my free will. If it all was at all worth anything things shouldn’t be hard… We would be what we believe we were meant to be, dreaming beneath stars, if we’re feeling lost, we can still be strong, even through the storms, it’s because you love me! Word is bond, there at any cost, steady never pause, calm but lately…

(Carolyn Malachi)
Somewhere there's a nothing
Waiting to become something
Fighting all the writing
Hiding from the lightning

We are in the suburbs
Racing to red lights
Having close encounters
Far away from home

Beautiful Dreamer
You're so beautiful
Beautiful Dreamer
You're so beautiful

It's a never ending story
Dying for the glory
Living through the pain

You can do anything
Despite what you've heard
You're on the verge
Of more than you can conceive

The world needs you
You need to be heard
I know it hurts
but I love you here
I love you here

In my heart
And in my mind
You're like a line
You're beautifully written

You've got me smitten
And dreamer I like it
Ohhhh, dreamer I love it
Can't hate it, can't stand it

[Jazz scat vocals]

Beautiful Dreamer

Do you believe?
The world is yours
You can do anything
Anything

When the world turns ugly
You must think yourself beautiful
When the world makes you feel weak
You must be strong

Beautiful

Please don't give up

Beautiful

The world needs you
Please, please don't give up

Beautiful

Please stay

Beautiful

Keep pushing
Keep trying
Keep living
Keep thriving
You can do it

Beautiful

Hey dreamer
I believe in you
You can do anything
Said, you can do anything

Beautiful Dreamer
