She Dreams

It has taken me ages…but today during my lunch-break at work (when I was editing my book), I came to the conclusion that I had to write the song “She Dreams” that I refer to several times in Annabelle’s story. I have the music in my head…but I can’t write music, so the lyrics will have to do.

I don’t want to hear her scream

I want her to live her dream

Let’s go build a boat for me and you

And sail away on the ocean blue

We’ll stop at every bay we pass along the way

Dancing in the sand, walking hand in hand

No matter where we roam

She dreams of finding home

 

I thought my girl was wild

Turns out she’s just a child

I thought she’d make me free

Turns out she just needs me

Didn’t think I really cared

Never thought I was prepared

To carry her broken heart

Now I need my girl to start

 

Finding herself a voice that sings

Growing herself a pair of wings

Beat them hard and away you’ll fly

Don’t give up til you’re up on high

Don’t limit what you can acheive

If only my girl would believe

That she can make her dreams come true

Your dreams are the best part of you

 

I love it when your eyes gleam

I want you to live your dream

Let’s go build a boat for me and you

And sail away on the ocean blue

We’ll stop at every bay we pass along the way

Dancing in the sand, walking hand in hand

No matter where we roam

She dreams of finding home

 

She dreams she’ll the best

She dreams of a great quest

She dreams she’ll pass the test

She dreams of finding rest

 

Any difference I could make?

Does love mean laying awake?

Praying about your lover

Hoping that’s she’ll discover

She has beautiful ideas

But she’s held back by her fears

Doesn’t know where she belongs

I keep on singing her these songs

 

If you ever quit this team

I want you to live your dream

Let’s go build a boat for me and you

And sail away on the ocean blue

We’ll stop at every bay we pass along the way

Dancing in the sand, walking hand in hand

No matter where we roam

She dreams of finding home

 

Keep that smile beaming

Stay forever dreaming

I hate to see you look glum

I need your dreams to become

Stronger than the shame

Stronger than your tears

Stronger than the pain

Stronger than your fears

 

No matter where we roam

She dreams of finding home

    1. Thank you so much Dee!
      I am pleased I managed to do it. I have felt a long time that I needed to come up with the words to the song I referred to several times throughout the books. It’s a relief I finally sat down and put together some of Dean’s thoughts towards the woman he loves.
