What's not to know?  The chorus is "I'm working on a dream".  On the audio @ 
1:02 he only sings the word "dream", but he's clearly mouthing the whole 
phrase on the video.  And people have been saying his vocal was the only 
live part of that performance!  I think I can safely say we have no idea 
what is live and what is recorded on any of these performances.
