Dream The Dream - Lyrics by Ufo


Mama they say the snow this winter
Beat you to the ground
But i'm a long time gone, long time gone
Wish i could see the blazin' sunset
Falling right into the bay
But i'm a long time gone, long time gone

* to dream the dream that's over
To live and love again
Oh my america
And to be where my footsteps lead me over
To be born again tonight

I want to be there on our back porch
Looking on down the road
But i'm a long time gone, long time gone
The troubles here, they pass me by
I want to get home to you
But i'm a long time gone, long time gone

* repeat

Lonely days, lonely nights
Caught up in someone else's fight
I'm holdin' on, and you're so strong
All i want to be is just holdin' you tonight


* repeat

[short instrumental] * repeat and fade out
