Song Description

girl meets boy and falls in love. Both have been around the block a few times and realistic about possibilities. Yet they still dream of a perfect future.

Story Behind the Song

Amy Speace played around with Blondie's song after having listened to a lot of Pasty Cline and Hank Williams, so she started to experiment with the rhythm and slowed it down to a nice honky tonk back beat.

Lyrics

"Dreaming"

When I met you in the restaurant
You could tell I was no debutante
You asked me what's my pleasure
A movie or a measure?
I'll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreaming
Dreaming is free
I don't want to live on charity
Pleasure's real or is it fantasy?
Reel to reel is living rarity
People stop and stare at me We just walk on by - we just keep on dreaming
Feet feet, walking a two mile
Meet meet, meet me at the turnstile
I never met him, I'll never forget him

Dream dream, even for a little while
Dream dream, filling up an idle hour
Fade away, radiate

I sit by and watch the river flow
I sit by and watch the traffic go
Imagine something of your very own
Something you can have and hold

I'd build a road in gold just to have some dreaming
Dreaming is free
Dreaming
Dreaming is free
Dreaming
Dreaming is free
