~Creative projects with my children have enlightened, lifted, and gifted me on several levels all my adult life. The music, videos, and art, not to mention, most important and precious of all, grandchildren have calmed, fulfilled, and sustained me. This is the story of a song, a father and son~

~Dream Don't~

This is a piece I have been working on for many years. I was involved in a music project with my youngest brother. My nine-year-old son, Tommy, came into the studio and handed me a chord progression he had worked out. My brother and I messed around with it a bit and I wrote the lyrics then set it aside. A couple of weeks ago, Tommy, a father now with two sons of his own, suggested that we dust it off and give it a shot. We're still working on it. The timelessness of the process is a bit scary to me but wonderful for the same reasons. Music is the circle that never ends. Listening to that young man wrap fingers around chords he put together when he was a boy brings a tear to my eye and makes me want to break something.

~Dream Don’t~
walkin’ through the realm of time
livin’ on these dreams of mine
all alone in a world of changin’
can’t believe I need arrangin’
saw my face through windblown shadow
looking at your eyes a man knows
you are the woman

felt my heart melt into you
do you love me, love me, do you
If I’m sleeping, Lord don’t take me
felt your breathing; please don’t wake me
oh you’re real, what’s happened to me
I’ve learned to feel, what are you to me
you are the woman

you are the woman, you are the woman
dream don’t, dream don’t
dream don’t, dream don’t
you are the woman

touch me if you feel my tears
I’m older than your heart and years
can’t believe the tiny hand
reminding me that I’m a man
I don’t deserve, I’ll take your love
I’ve never cried, you make me love
you are the woman

now I’m living in your eyes
loving ‘til it makes me cry
you’ve saved me from the sea of time
brought me back just one more time
love what is, where did you go
was that a whisper, I love you so
you are the woman

you are the woman, you are the woman
dream don’t, dream don’t
dream don’t, dream don’t
you are the woman
you are the woman, you are the woman
dream don’t, dream don’t
dream don’t, dream don’t
you are the woman
