Cholena Fievel

From the sing-along DVD extra

A song that Fievel and Cholena sing together in An American Tail: The Treasure of Manhattan Island, to cheer Fievel up since he feels guilty about what the Europeans did to her people. It's about how anything can happen in your dreams. The lyrics might be interpreted as Cholena longing to leave the underground hideout and see the world, feeling trapped by it, and only being able to leave in her dreams. During the song they take a ride in a series of baskets hanging over Cholena's village, and Tony tries to stop them because he thinks it's dangerous.

It is implied that Fievel coupled with Cholena, as it showed the two holding hands near the end of the song. Their bonding was never mentioned in dialogue due to Thomas Dekker was only 9-10 years old, which explains Cholena calls Fievel her friend to Papa Mousekewitz before exploring Manhattan.

A "clean" version of the song without any background noises or Tony's shouting can be found in the DVD extras, as a Sing-Along, resulting Fievel and Cholena are the main focus as a couple before the Lenape exiled as anything else are no importance in the Sing-Along.

The song was written by Wayne Tester and Sharon Rice; and performed by Thomas Dekker and Leeza Miller (replacing Cholena's voice actress Elaine Bilstad).

Lyrics

Cholena:

Anywhere in Your Dreams

Anywhere in Your Dreams

Anywhere in your dreams
Anywhere you can imagine
A bright new door is waiting for you to open
You can go anywhere
Anywhere in your dreams

Just close your eyes
You might be surprised
What's inside you

Fievel:
Dreams are like steps
It's hard to guess where they'll guide you

Cholena:
You can go anywhere in your dreams
Anywhere you can imagine
A bright new door is waiting for you to open
You can go anywhere
Anywhere in your dreams

Fievel:
I hope I can find
A dream that's just mine
Someday

Cholena:
You might get lost
But your heart will show you the right way

Both:
And we can go anywhere in our dreams
Anywhere we can imagine
A bright new door is waiting us to open
We can go anywhere
Anywhere
No matter where
We'll get there
We can go anywhere in our dreams
