Dreams

Original and similar lyrics
(Geyer) There are dreams that sail away to sea, dreams that stay at home. There are dreams in need of company, and some that stand alone. There are dreams that stay inside all day and never see the light, and if dreams come true, I swear to you I'll dream of you tonight. In a corner bar the local star destroys a passing chord. His sits behind a mason jar and dreams of his reward. Then he takes his break, he counts his take, a dollar buys a beer. A quarter of his life is gone, what's he doing here? Now times are hard, the old backyard is covered in cement. The people seem afraid to dream and dreams don't cost a cent. There are dreams that stay inside all day and never see the light, and if dreams come true, I swear to you I'll dream of you tonight. And if dreams come true, I swear to you I'll dream of you tonight.

Keep On

JUNIOR DOCTOR "Clumsy Words And Bad Pickup Lines"
Lately I've had a hard time trying to fall asleep And I've tried everything from medications all the way to counting sheep But I just end up creating a crippling addiction To things I swore I'd never need - oh I laid awake in bed last night through a thousand dreams And I began to think that everything I want is so far out of reach But then I looked at you and knew my dream was lying right here next to me So I say We keep on dreaming of all we can be And I don't have much, but I have you So let's keep on dreaming, and I'll keep believing Because I know that dreams come true And my proof is that I have you Now I try so hard to be good company But sometimes my ADD gets the best of me So busy trying to reach the stars That I forget about the flowers at my feet Then something makes you laugh And I quickly remember that you are all I need Cause your smile lifts me up whenever I am down Your eyes, they ease the pain from when I've hit the ground And the truth is my dream was always you And baby you're the reason I know dreams come true Yeah I'll keep on, cause I have you

All My Heroes Are Dead

Dar Williams "All My Heroes Are Dead"
You gotta admit Life magazine made 1968 look great, My father said it sucked, everybody died. All the troops you couldn't save, no one knew how to be brave, He said sometimes you were afraid to turn your radio on. It was enough to make you quit that peacenick scene. Well I heard about leaders, yeah I hear they're no longer around Cause peace was abandoned, and bravery hanged in his town. And they passed down a sentence For building on the beauty of some dream. All my heroes are dead, I got them in my head, saying Never again, never a war, no more fighting. So I'll stay true to them, and they'll come home again, I'll carry the light, follow the dream, I'll remember. The '68 convention was a singing the times they are a-changing, Well I guess they a-changed back. Oh I miss those peaceful folk, love and humor when they spoke, hey Phil Ochs you still sound great, should've stuck around to hear it. They say that compact disc makes songs come true. But Phil I never expected that I'd miss you like a friend, Cause I never expected that we would be marching again. And the soldiers of peace would tumble from this life as in a war. All my heroes are dead, and all the books I read, Said This is greed, this is wrong, fight your war at home . So I'll stay true to them, and they'll come home again, I'll carry the light, follow the dream, I'll remember. So back to the present passion, romance, love, or simply put a lack thereof. Shall we go on? I don't take it personally, it's our post-modern history, You know since Nixon was impeached it's just been hard to commit, So we cast our allegance left and right. But I always believed that our souls would come through. So I never expected that you'd take her home with you. And I never detected, how hardened and not sorry you could be. Don't you know? All our heroes are dead, we got ourselves instead. And oh my friend, all your lies, they won't do you. You gotta stay true to them, and they'll come home again, I miss them too, I miss them too, you know I miss them More than I love you.

Dreams Do Come True

DOLLY PARTON "Eagle When She Flies"
Intro: Like the morning sun His love moved across every inch of my body And the heat from the fire burned me up with desire I thought I'd died and gone to heaven for sure This morning when I opened my eyes There to my surprise Lay that angel I thought had been only a dream And so I said a little prayer And thanked God, that he was there Oh, this is a dream come true 1st Chorus: Dream do come true I know 'cause I found you I never thought they did But now I do Dreams do come true It was love at first sight And it was love all night And the way he made love to me Fulfilled all my fantasies Ooo, this is a dream come true 2nd Chorus: Yes, dreams do come true I know 'cause I found you I never thought they did But you're living proof That dreams do come true Tag: Dreams do come true And I am so in love with you

Sweet Dreams For You

JEWEL "Lullaby"
The shadows are waltzing The moon beams are calling Like a dream I am falling into Silver threads lined with two twinkling stars seem To shine just for you Behind your eyes Are endless blue skies You travel places I want to come to Each breath that you breathe is a brush stroke That leads me to you So, sleep Fall into nights indigo hue Believe me its true Theres nothing that I would not do For my dream is sweet dreams for you It seems far away but there once was a day It was grey in a world without you To this heart like a doll from above A miracle of your love found me So, sleep Fall into nights indigo hue Believe me its true Theredream is sweet dreams for you So hush-a-bye And dont you cry Sweetly dreaming, little baby Yes, sleep Lose yourself in nights indigo hue Believe me its true Theres nothing that I would not do For my dream is sweet dreams Yes, my dream is sweet dreams for you
