Dream On

from by Allen Mask



Dream On was the song I wrote at what I call the tipping point. It came at a crucial time in my courting of the young lady who this entire album is about. The air was filled with uncertainty and question as to whether this was the right situation and whether I was the right half of it. Dream On is a presentation of my thoughts to her and a request that she think about "us" after a midsummer nights sleep.

Notice the compositional differences in this song. The entire tune is built on one single chord with parallel motions between major and minor chord voicings. Dream On is also the first song I have ever really relied completely on a drum break for the percussion. Dont worry - we spiced it up a bit and made it our own.


Verse 1:

Mi amora my magnificent
I'd like to take this time if any just to tell you where im coming from
Cuz if my reach was wide enough to show you that you mean the world to me
Then you'd believe that I don't want another one
I think that you could be the death of me
If thats the case ill sign a waiver to deny myself a remedy
Even if they try to clone your special recipe as worst case...i never deserved you in the first place


Dream on
Just close your eyes and
Dream on
Before sun rise and
Dream on
Cuz we'll be fine and
This will never wash away
So baby look at me...

Dream on
Just close your eyes and
Dream on
Before sun rise and
Dream on
Everything will hold today
But right now...


We've got
To find a way
To make our hearts believe
Baby please
Lead with love
And I still think
We've not
Designed a way
To get what we both need
Baby please
Lead with love

Verse 2:

My amora my magnificent
I'd like to take this time if any just to tell you that my greatest fear
Is seeing you - magic woman of my dreams
Stroll back into neverland
Can't let it happen here
One of your people asked of me the other day if all my chips were really in or was I
Just falling easily
I walked him through the open chambers of my heart that bear your name in size infinity
No more misreading me

Verse 3:

And its impossible the growth in how i care for you
Cant take a single breath without wanting to share with you
Id leave it all just for the call to be wherever you are summoned to
Its overwhelming how i'm loving you
And sommelier agrees that we could go together
I close my eyes and think of how we'd maybe grow together
But i dont think you understand dove
That this peter pan love
IS what im a fan of...still i think
