Lyrical Friday

Welcome to Lyrical Friday! Music is so important in all of our creative journeys as well as in our own personal soundtrack of life.  So many songs have influenced me and I want to use this day to put up a video and lyrics of songs from all genre’s that I find to have some sort of beauty or impact, or that I just think are amusing!

Sammy Hagar is probably my favorite Van Halen  singer, but I do have an appreciation for Dave.  They both had their moments and both ruled during their time.  Sammy is now rocking in Chicken Foot (awesome by the way) and we should be seeing Dave here soon in a new Van Halen album.

The Dream is Over from their 1991 album For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge

The Dream is Over

Psst!
Hey, come on man. Wake up

Yea-yeah!

I see the power changin’ hands
Risin’ from the streets
A self-made businessman
Knows how the system can be beat

Oh, we’re the lost generation
Have no place to go
The road to destruction
Is all we need to know

‘Cuz it’s a rip-off
We’re stepped on and cheated
We’re flat stone cold lied to
We’re not defeated. No!

It’s ah, easy money
It’s a way out
Join the family
No middleman. No IRS
Your ticket out of poverty

Oh, we’re the lost generation
I hold fate from a string
Lookin’ for a direction
Reachin’ out for anything

So, dream another dream
This dream is over (Ooo-ooo-ooo)
Dream another dream
This dream is over (Ahh-ahh)
Dream another dream (Dream another dream)
This dream is over (Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo)
Over, yeah
So dream another dream!

(Guitar Solo)

Oh!
Ow!

Ow! It’s a rip-off
We’re stepped on and cheated
Flat stone cold lied to
We’re not defeated. No!

Dream another dream
This dream is over (Ooo-ooo-ooo)
Dream another dream
This dream is over, over (Dream another dream)
Dream another dream
This dream is over, oh (Ooo-ooo-ooo)
Dream another dream
This dream is over. Over, yeah (Dream another dream)
(Dream) Dream another dream (Ooo-ooo-ooo)
Dream another dream
(Dream) Dream another dream (Ooo-ooo-ooo)
Oh, this dream is over
(Dream) Dream another dream (Dream another dream)
Dream another dream
