"The Dream" as written by Bryan G. Fryzel, Krislyn Rivera and Roderick Khari Faison-bey....
As I sit by myself
I've come from so so far away
In such little time I have gained
My soul my mind
I've tried so hard to find
Is this what I must do to get by
And I ask myself why

Why don't you write
Why don't you call me
I'll wait here
I'll find my way
Or will you help me
Help me share

Does she understand me
Or listen to what I say
Turn her back on my dreams
Watching waiting
No turning back

Find my way out
No turning back
Turn your back on my dreams
So strong so weak
Rest on your choice
Is this what I must do

Decide
Why
I know
Decide
Why
I know
Decide
Why
I know
Yeah

Why don't you write
Why don't you call me

I'll wait here
I'll find my way
Or will you help me
Help me share
I'll find my way out
Find my way out
I'll find my way

    General CommentI love this song. It makes me cry thought and I'm not sure why. I think it's the "I'll find my way" part. Great song.

    I'm not a hundred percent sure what it's about but it seems that a girl left him, he lost contact with her and is questioning why and whether she was ever really there. I guess she kinda turned her back on him and what not.

    The whole share thing, I don't get. "Help me share"? Hmmm...

    General Commentthe first line is "As I sit by myself". Well, I found this band totally by mistake. I was on audiogalaxy looking at thursday songs, and this one was listed as "Thursday - the Dream". So I downloaded it, and after I realized it wasn't thursday, I looked everywhere to find out who it was. It's a beautiful song, i'm happy I found this group. :)

    General CommentUnder the Band "Thursday" they have this song which its really by open hand but they actually go the lyrics right.

    As I sit by myself,
    I've come from so, so far away.
    In such little time I have gave,
    my soul, my mind, I've tried so hard to find.
    Is this what I must do to get by?
    And I ask myself why?

    Why don’t you run, why don’t you call me,
    I’ll wait here.
    I’ll find my way, or will you help me out this year?

    Does she understand me?
    Listen to what I say.
    Turning her back, on my dreams.
    Watching, waiting.

    You turn your back.
    I’ll find my way home,
    You turn your back.
    Turn your back on my dream,
    So strong, so weak, we’re stronger still.
    Is this what I must do?

    This I, why?
    I know.

    Why don’t you run, why don’t you call me,
    I’ll wait here.
    I’ll find my way, or will you help me out this year?

    thats what they have hmm...... I duno guys its a good song.

    General Commentmuahaha, this song is not by Thursday. some half-brain computer self-proclaimed genius who came across the mp3 decided that he would rather give credit for this amazing song to Thursday. Thursday is an amazing band, with amazing-amazing songs, but "The Dream" isn't one of them. I found this song (and found out about the phenom that is Open Hand) when i downloaded "The Dream" with Thursday as the artist. However anyone, who even sparsely listens to the song can realize that it is not Thursday. Some of the guitar might be along the same lines, vaguely. But the vocals should be all the proof you need. But, if you need more than just your filial ears as proof, check out the open hand site... openhandmusic.com ...

    General CommentYeah sorry, I was the one who posted these lyrics as Thursday. I was mistaken...but really the half brain computer self proclaimed genius is the one who actually put Thursday down on the mp3 that I downloaded on Kazaa! Why can't they just put the REAL artist. Heh. Anyway, yeah I really love this song, no matter who it's by. But now I have discovered a new band, Open Hand. So it's good that it wasn't Thursday. :)
