"Dreams" as written by and Chris Braide Desmond Child....
Why do I daydream?
Why do I get my hopes up at all?
I've been living this Walter Mitty life
For too long

Somebody save me
I'm a prisoner of my own fear
Sometimes fantasy is the only
Thought I can bear

My mind is a dream-filled balloon
Dripping dreams into my shoes
And I'm too afraid to move
To face the real world

And when I fall, I fall down hard
When will I ever learn?
Don't take your dreams to heart
You'll only wind up getting
Burned

Maybe I'm lazy
But circumstances always knock me down
So I'll just lie here, never get up
Off the ground

But maybe it's crazy
To sit and think of all the things I wanna do
What's the use in dreaming when dreams
Never come true?

And when I fall, I fall down hard
When will I ever learn?
Don't take your dreams to heart
You'll only wind up getting
Burned

Why do I daydream?
Why do I daydream?
Why do I bother?
Why?

Time to get up off your ass
Pull your head out – take a chance
Grab whatever you can grab
'Cause there's no such thing…
No such thing

    General Commentthis is my favorite song off Cool to Be You. It says so much about having dreams, and sometimes they just dont come true unless you go out and do them. Which is what I want to do with my life, now.
