Story Behind the Song

During my long hiatus from songwriting and guitar playing, I'd occasionally pick up the guitar, and this was one song & riff I doodled with over the years--no lyrics then, just a syllabic melody line in my head. When we decided to form Penelope's Thrill, this was the first song we recorded (after I'd written some actual lyrics, of course). Thanks to Barb for the angelic keyboards during the bridge! --Tim

Lyrics

You Belong to Me in My Dreams
Words & music by Timothy Walsh

You don't know what you can be
when you're going round with him.
You don't know that I can see that you're doing it all again.
Stop! You don't understand why you are falling in his trap.
Stop! You don't understand why you are falling for such crap.

CHORUS: You belong to me in my dreams.
You belong to me in my very own lonely dreams.

You don't know that you are free to cast off this damn town.
You don't know that he can see you're the only thing around.
Take all that I can give and you can buy yourself some time.
Take all that I can give even though you never will be mine.
CHORUS: You belong to me...etc.

BRIDGE: If you could only see what you're doing to me
to cause such pain.
If you could only know that your eyes are hard-wired in my brain.

I remember how we were when we were young and bold.
I remember how we were before we got so old.
Now my days all feel so wrong and empty all the time.
Now my nights all seem so long and lonely as the pines.

CHORUS: You belong to me.....etc.
If you could only see what you're doing to me....etc.
