Lyrics

DREAM ON DAVID , DREAM ON


1.WELL I GUESS I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A DREAMER

MUSER , MUSO , POET , SCHEMER , LIVING IN A WORLD OF FANTASY

AND WHEN I WAS A LITTLE BOY , MY FRIENDS WOULD MOCK AND JEER & TAUNT

WHEN I WOULD HUM A MELODY ALL DAY

BUT IT WOULD NOT BOTHER ME MUCH , OR REDUCE ME TO TEARS

AS I ALWAYS HAD THIS VOICE SAYING IN MY EARS

CHORUS

DREAM ON DAVID , DREAM ON

CREATE A NEW WORLD WITH YOUR SONGS

AND ESCAPE INTO THAT FANTASY WHEN EVERYTHING GOES WRONG

AND DREAM ON DAVID , DREAM ON

2.AND MOVING FORWARD FROM THAT TIME

THE YEARS BETWEEN COULD NOT QUENCH OUT

THE GIFT I KNEW THAT GOD HAD GIVEN ME

AND AT SCHOOL AND UNIVERSITY AND TWO YEARS IN THE MILITARY

WHERE MY DREAMER NATURE HAD ME NOT FIT IN

AND WITH ALL THE SCREAMING ORDERS AND VILLIFYING ME

IT'S LIKE I COULDN'T HEAR A THING , THIS VOICE STILL IN MY EAR , SAYING
CHORUS
3.THEN THE YEARS WENT BY AND SO QUICKLY, 20'S , 30'S, 40'S , 50'S

AND SOMETIMES I THOUGHT IT HAD ELUDED ME

BUT WRITING MORE SONGS ALL THE TIME AND SHARPENING THE ART OF RYHME

THAT STAR OF HOPE ALWAYS FLICKERED BRIGHTLY

AND AS WITH ALL CREATION , A BIRTH THERE HAS TO BE

AND NOTHING EVER COULD PUT OUT THAT VOICE ALWAYS RINGING

CHORUS
