Dream On

This song has to do with keeping Hope alive, during difficult circumstances. This song deals with divorce and how one parent trys to pull up the slack for the other. It is one of the songs recorded but not included on “Phoenix Rising.” It’s wonderful to have the opportunity to finally share this song with you.

DREAM ON
by Jennifer Avalon & Noel Boland

Shiny leather shoes and a dress of lace
One look from you and I knew to behave
Five years old in front of the mirror
I’d watch your hands as you brushed my hair

You were the lady who wore the smiling face
Who tucked me in and remembered the words to say

DREAM ON (the night is long)
DREAM ON (tomorrow will come)
DON’T YOU BE AFRAID TO BE BRAVE AND STRONG
SHADOWS FADE AWAY WITH THE MORNING SUN SO
DREAM ON……DREAM ON

Age thirteen and my father left (my father left, I can’t forget)
This wasn’t the way my fairytales went
I never really understood (never understood, thought I would)
How he could leave when I’d been so good (I did all I could)

You hid your tears but the pain was clear in your eyes
You held me near and I heard your lullably

DREAM ON (the night is long)
DREAM ON (tomorrow will come)
DON’T YOU BE AFRAID TO BE BRAVE AND STRONG
SHADOWS FADE AWAY WITH THE MORNING SUN SO
DREAM ON (when sunshine is gone)
DREAM ON (a new day will come)
I WILL LIGHT THE WAY TO LEAD YOU THROUGH THE DARK
FEAR WILL GO AWAY WHEN YOU TRUST YOUR HEART

Bridge:
The words you softly gave me,are lasting through my life
The strength to keep believing,that things can end up right
