KELLY CLARKSON - I Had A Dream

This song is from the album Piece By Piece(2015), released on Feb 27, 2015.
I really enjoyed the vocal effects and techniques used in this song. The background music felt really tight, while the execution of each and every note of Kelly was mind-blowing. The power and energy in her voice could be really felt in the last chorus, and the background vocals added a nice effect to the song. I liked the effects that the producer used towards the end of the song, it was really interesting.

[INTRO] Em G D C
[VERSE]
Em
If you wanna lead be a leader
              G
If you wanna dream be a dreamer
                             D
Climb to the top of that mountain and scream it
          C
But remember when you get to the top
Em
Everything you say is gonna matter
               G
Everything you do is gonna add up
                 D
It's what you asked for
     C
So don't get mad when it's not what you thought


Em
Careful now girl with them jezebel ways
G
Fell on your head, you're queen of cliches
D
Little one playing with the big ones now
C
Hope you're ready when it comes back around

[CHORUS]
G                           D
I had a dream that we were more
Am                C
A generation to behold
G                         D
Lighting fires with our words
Am                             C
Instead of useless smoke that blurs
C                     Em
The lines of hiding home
                       D
Expression that lives on
                Am
An army with a song
              C
That lingers on and on
          Em
I had a dream

[INSTRUMENTAL] Em G D C

[VERSE][VERSE]
Em
If you wanna preach be a preacher
               G
If you wanna teach be a teacher
                                       D
Remember that the footprints you're leaving
D      C
Will tell us all who you really are
Em
It's too bad you can't see what you're worth
G
Spreading your legs instead of using your words
D
Character is shown by the things that we do
      C
The one thing you're never gonna hide is the truth
Em                                    G
'Cause anyone can sell when they're selling out
D                                C
And anyone can fly when they're falling out

[CHORUS]
G                           D
I had a dream that we were more
Am                C
A generation to behold
G                         D
Lighting fires with our words
Am                             C
Instead of useless smoke that blurs
C                     Em
The lines of hiding home
                       D
Expression that lives on
                Am
An army with a song
              C
That lingers on and on
          Em
I had a dream
