Dreaming

Al Klingner's poster art deco from 1901

Klingner’s Art Deco famous poster seems perfectly relevant for the concept of dreaming. The topic of dreaming is the subject of the following song, which some critics have said reminds them of elements of the song Hearts by the band Yes from the album 90125. The clip of that song is on this page for your comparison and thoughts.

Dreaming is, of course, a popular topic for songwriting. Many bands have written about dreaming, or dreamin’ including Status Quo. That may be so due to the creative, imaginative and inspirational nature of dreams.

Dreaming

Song for the antewake

Dreaming
Walking
No I
Gave you

Such a part’s along the quiver
Take a count to all you’ve seen

One pepper, two gather
freedom for the way
so easy, the pleasure
so say the willing’s Dei

love me
hold me
take me
out to play

few have cascaded quivers
they fly from side to side
x4

be ready? How?
Be ye circled.

Be ready to groove

One part’s for love
one’s for tripping
(seeing down the giver)
wailing down the freeway

two parts are better than none

i’m seeing it
i’m believing it
i’m sayin’ up the highway

One part’s for love
one’s for tripping
(seeing down the giver)
wailing down the freeway

two parts are better than none

i’m seeing it
i’m believing it
i’m sayin’ up the highway

Who was it, honey? Why’s Mandu?
Did you not hear it? Where’s Badoo?

If you can’t see yourself saying it,
Be leaving it
I live in it
I loved in it

One part’s for love
one’s for tripping
(seeing down the giver)
wailing down the freeway

If you can’t see yourself saying it,
Be leaving it
I live in it
I loved in it

Two parts are better than one

As we run down town’s railroad
I see the birds land one by one
All beings of the wonderous solar system
be winging us. Yow!
