about

Lost love is sad, isn't it? This is an older song about just that. A lost love that launched a hundred songs, a thousand shots of whiskey, and an ocean of tears. My coping skills devolved into morbid songwriting, fantasy, binge drinking, and the like. Eventually I found delusional comfort in convincing myself that I and said lost lover were together in some alternate universe somewhere, down in my dream, our lost love fossilized (immortalized?) in song. Oh how I wish I could go back in time and give this poor girl a hug and tell her everything will be ok. Sigh.

lyrics

Down In My Dream

Down in my dream, everything is alright
And I'm not losing my mind
Because you're coming back some time

It seemed so easy to say
Love was the drug and we had more than enough
It seemed so easy to say
If we died tomorrow it would be a life well-lived

Down In my dream, everything is alright
And I'm not losing my mind
Because you're coming back some time

Down in my dream
Our love is alive in song
We've never been apart
You never broke my heart

Now only a memory
Growing deeper, getting darker
Since you went away
I cried enough tears to fill the ocean between us

But down in my dream, everything is alright
And I'm not losing my mind
Cause you're coming back some time

Down in my dream
Our love is alive in song
We've never been apart
You never broke my heart

Down in my dream
We are still in love
You're holding me in your arms
and I can feel your touch

Down in my dream
I'm going back in time
You never got on that plane
I can hear you calling my name

Down in my dream
You still love me
