I had a really hard time finding a song for today. My hope waxes and wanes on a daily basis.

Life is a bitch, man.

A song that makes you hopeful.
A song that makes you hopeful.

So, as I searched YouTube, nothing I found seemed to fill me with hope. I am no longer young and fruitful, and most days, I feel like the plague.

Wow, this was a bad day for this particular song challenge.

I almost went country, but I found myself saying “meh” and I kept looking. Then, by pure kismet, I saw one of my favorite bands of all time, Aerosmith.

This song makes more sense to me now than it did when I was 16. Kooky, that whole time thing, huh? (Don’t mind me, I’ve been feeling old lately.)

I put my earphones on and got as comfy as possible. I listened. I read the lyrics. I nodded my head, yes….dream on.

No one can take those away.

Dream until your dreams come true.

It’s never too late, right?

Dream On

by Aerosmith

Everytime that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face gettin’ clearer
The past is gone
It went by like dust to dawn
Isn’t that the way
Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay

I know what nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody’s sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life’s in books’ written pages
Live and learn from fools and from sages
You know it’s true
All the things come back to you

x2
Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

Dream On, Dream On, Dream On,
Dream until your dream come true
Dream On, Dream On, Dream On,
Dream until your dream come true
Dream On, Dream On, Dream On,
Dream On, Dream On, Dream On,
Dream On, Dream On, Ooooh

x2
Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter and sing for the tears
Sing with me, if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away
