Dream

Listen to the song

Recorded by: Cradle

THIS FINAL SONG IS DEFINITELY OUR INTROSPECTIVE STATEMENT ON LIFE, GOING FULL CIRCLE. THE MESSAGE…..NO MATTER WHAT COMES…..DON’T LOSE YOUR DREAMS OR YOU ARE DEAD. NEVER GIVE UP. THE SONG STARTS WITH TWO WELL KNOWN SHORT COVER SONG EXCERPTS, AND MOVES INTO ORIGINAL MOVEMENTS THAT TAKE YOU ON THIS JOURNEY….. STARTING WITH YOUR DREAMS IN YOUTH…..MOVING THROUGH LOVE…..TOWARD QUESTIONING THE STATUS QUO AND FINDING ONE’S PATH….. THEN THROUGH AN ETHEREAL SECTION THAT NUDGES THE LISTENER TO HOLD TIGHT TO THEIR DREAMS (“TAKE MY HAND/”YOUR DREAMS” AND FOLLOW ME)……DON’T LET GO. THEN WE GO THROUGH THE CONFLICTS OF LIFE (MUSICAL DRIVING SECTION WE CALL “THE WAIL”). THE TUNE FINALLY ENDS FULL CIRCLE, WITH REGAINING YOUR DREAMS…….FULL CIRCLE NO MATTER WHAT MAY COME. DEFINITELY A THOUGHTFUL PIECE WITH FULL ON TYMPANI DRUMS (YES WE TRAVELED WITH THEM AND WHAT A PAIN!!!!! BUT WORTH IT).

Lyrics

CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN, SEARCH HIGH AND LOW
FOLLOW EVERY BYWAY, EVERY PATH YOU KNOW
CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN, FORD EVERY STREAM
FOLLOW EVERY RAINBOW, UNTIL YOU FIND YOUR DREAM
A DREAM THAT WILL BE, ALL THE LOVE YOU CAN GIVE
EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE, FOR AS LONG AS YOU LIVE
CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN, FORD EVERY STREAM
FOLLOW EVERY RAINBOW

LONG AGO, SO FAR AWAY
I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU, BEFORE THE SECOND SHOW
YOUR GUITAR, IT SOUNDED SO SWEET AND CLEAR
BUT YOU’RE NOT REALLY HERE, IT’S JUST A RADIO

DON’T YOU REMEMBER YOU TOLD YOU LOVED ME BABY
SAID YOU’D BE COMIN BACK THIS WAY AGAIN BABY
BABY BABY BABY BABY OH BABY, I LOVE YOU, I REALLY DO

I GAVE YOU THE ANSWERS AND FILLED IN THE LINES
SIR IT’S MY QUESTION THE PROBLEM IS MINE
DON’T BE AFRAID OF ME, I DO NOT BITE
BUT IF YOU KEEP BOTHERING ME I JUST MIGHT

HERE ARE THE ANSWERS IN BLACK AND WHITE
CAN’T YOU SEE THAT THINGS AREN’T RIGHT
WON’T YOU PLEASE LISTEN TO WHAT I’VE SAID
WHY SHOULD I LISTEN TO SOMEONE WHO’S DEAD

AND IN MY EYES I SEE NOTHING, ONLY THE DARKNESS OF TIME
AND IN YOUR FACE, SHINES A LIGHT UPON ME
AND IN THE DARK, I AM WAITING, WAITING, WAITING
I AM WAITING……TAKE MY HAND AND FOLLOW ME, I AM WAITING
REPRISE
