When I Dream

Story Behind The Song

I was sitting at a camp fire with my acoustic guitar and the words and music came out of me so fast I couldnt write them down fast enough. I only had to add a second verse and work on the arrangement otherwise it turned out just how i wrote it and heard it in my head. That's how i arrange and produce a song. I hear everything while I am in the writing mode. I hear the song playing. all the parts and intruments. The beat a feel. Sometimes you refine them but pretty much, I leave it alone and trust me own ear. That makes it really exciting to hear it while recording it and it all comes together.

Lyrics

Written by Lou Derr BMI
"When I Dream"

Intro-Music 8 Measures

Chorus
When I think about love
I think about you
The moon lit nights
and the stars above
and when I dream, I dream about you.
Turn down the lights
and make my dreams come true.

Verse 1

We still walk, hand in hand.
We still dream, of having lots of land.
So we can ride till the cows
come home.
They say I'm dreamin, thank God I'm not alone.

Chorus:
When I think about love, I think about you.
The moon lit nights, and the stars above.
And when I dream, I dream about you. So yurn down the lights, and make my dreams
come true.

Instrumental break

Verse 2

We go through life, barely getting by, and with out love
it's hard to survive.
So we dream, of how it's supposed to be.
Thank God we're together, you keep my love alive.

Chorus

When I think about love, I think about you,
The moon lit nights and the stars above.
And when I dream, I dream about you. So turn down the lights and make my dreams come true. (key change)
(repeat chorus)
(talk)"turn down the light baby" and make my dreams come true.
