Everybody’s got a dream

Lives shrouded in doubt

Everybody’s got a dream

Secretly buried

Dreams like floating clouds

not impossible to grab

Shroud them in sunlight

You are the first in the whole wide world to hear this new song!

The Debut of

Each One’s Dream

written, composed and sung by Rich Wordes.

PLEASE Click, listen (you gotta listen and tell me if this doesn’t sound like a Peter, Paul & Mary song!) and give Rich your feedback.

Each One’s Dream
Words and Music by Rich Wordes
 
Everybody’s got a dream
Never even dare to try
Knowin’ what they have to do
Scared to give up that old lie
So they sigh,
but don’t ask why
 
And they resign theirselves to their fate
Half a dollar in the collection plate
And they think that that makes it all right
Never knowin’ what they might ever do
If they try
and so they sigh 
 
A shelf of books that go unread
“Cause the kid ain’t got the mind
To remember what they said
All he wants is peace of mind
So he reads between the lines
 
And they resign theirselves to their fate
Half a dollar in the collection plate
And they think that that makes it all right
Never knowin’ what they might ever do
If they try
and so they cry.
 
Dream of things that might have been
Tho’ ya know they’ll never be
‘Cause the cage that you’re locked in
Strangles creativity
And your mind’s the only key
 
And they resign theirselves to their fate
Half a dollar in the collection plate
And they think that that makes it all right
Never knowin’ what they might ever do
If they try
they wonder why.

Dreams like floating clouds

not impossible to grab

Shroud them in sunlight
