Song Description

I started this out with a political statement in mind but as I got further into writing it it got down to a more personal level.

Story Behind the Song

I started to write a song about the immigration situation but the song took it's own direction and moved to a more personal, local level. Funny how that happens.

Lyrics

Dreamers Choice
©JD Carroll / Creative Ventures Music, Inc./ASCAP

Dream the dreams that no one else is dreaming.
Sing your song in your own voice.
Live the life as only you can live it.
And love your loves as if you had no choice,
Yes, love your loves as if you had no choice.

Counting all the stars in the summer sky.
Tryin' to catch lightning in a jar.
Just a kid growing up free
No one should tell you who you are.
The train is waiting at the station
It's leaving sooner than it seems.
I see you standing on the platform
with you baggage, your guitar and your dreams.

Dream the dreams that no one else is dreaming.
Sing your song in your own voice.
Live the life as only you can live it.
And love your loves as if you had no choice,
Yes, love your loves as if you had no choice.

You've got a chance and you should take it.
You know best what you can do.
When dark clouds come threatening
Its up to you to shine on through.
Its not my place to advise you.
I'll leave that to your old man.
I might suggest you try and stay in touch
Give me a call when you can.

Dream the dreams that no one else is dreaming.
Sing your song in your own voice.
Live the life as only you can live it.
And love your loves as if you had no choice,
Yes, love your loves as if you had no choice.
