"Amanda's Dream" as written by and Teitur Lassen Jeffrey Cohen....
Can you say good-bye, without ever leavin'?
That's some sad soul to keep
Amanda awakes in a moment believin'
She's better off stayin' asleep
So she drives by the station
Imaginin' somewhere, sings a slow, slow, song

Now, she's waitin' at the stoplights
With no where to go
But in our town there's just one stoplight
Oh, I wish she would know

There's a world outside her window
Anywhere the wind blows
Anywhere's Amanda's dream

She sits late at night by the light of a candle
With wishes that never come true
And her hope gets so high they're too hard to handle
She stares as they fade out of view
And of these some words have led her to nowhere
Except a slow, slow, song

Now, she's waitin' at the stoplights
With no where to go
But in our town there's just one stoplight
Oh, I wish she would know

There's a world outside her window
Anywhere the wind blows
Anywhere's Amanda's dream

Well she sleeps like a girl
But she wakes like a woman
She sleeps like a girl
But she wakes like a woman, like a woman

Waitin' at the stoplights
With nowhere to go
But in our town there's just one stoplight
I wish she would know

There's a world outside her window
Anywhere the wind blows
Anywhere's Amanda's dream

Na na na
Na na na
Na na na

    General CommentShe sits late at night by the light of a candle
    With wishes that never come true
    Her hopes get so high they’re too hard to handle
    She stares as they fade out of view

    This song is about disappointment I think. Its about having so many grandoise dreams for yourself and ending up working at McDonalds for minimum wage for the rest of your life. And you watch your dreams fade away right in front of your eyes.

    So she drives by the station
    Imagining somewhere
    Sings a slow, slow song
    Now she’s waiting at the stoplights
    With nowhere to go
    In our town there’s just one stoplight

    This is about wanting to be anywhere but in this dead end town that you live in. Maybe its some rural town that is barely on the map, hence the one stoplight. And this peson may know in their heart of hearts they are going to live and die here.

    Amanda awakes in a moment believing
    She’s better off staying asleep

    This I think is saying that she would rather be asleep and dreaming than awake and have the realization she is still in the same place she has always been.


    I think this song is about all the dreams about being famous or loved or even just making it out of some undesirable situation.
