"Glorious" as written by Kenny Dick Hakansson, Niklas Anders Andersson, Robert Matz Eriksson, Anders Lindstrom and Robert Dahlquist....
You were shining in a white light
Like a fairytale movie star
Never really thought I would find snow white drinking in a downtown bar
You were underneath the white light
Like a vision in a deep dark place
Never really thought I would fall for a country girl with an angel's face

Aw everything fades away
The world changes every day
When I think about you, it makes me want to say

Glorious
Glorious
You are glorious

We were walkin' in the white sun
Growing up and throwin' down loud
There was silver in our eyes and we didnt know why,
The power of the north so proud
We were lost inside a long dark summer
Headed down a no where road
Looking for a light in the middle of the night,
A place that felt like home

I know everything fades away
The world changes everyday
When I think about you, and what we had,
It makes me want to say

Glorious
Glorious
You are to me
Glorious
Yeah this glorious life has never been what it seems
I was asleep when I was living the dream
Living the dream
I know I was living the dream

I think about the time in the city
Running away trying to live free
I could never believe that you wanted to be with me
We'd wait in the cold for the last bus home
Sleeping with your arms around me
The world is never what it seems to be
I was living the life when
I should have been living the dream

Glorious
Should've been living the dream
Glorious
Should've been living the dream
Glorious
I know I never understood how much you would mean to me
Now I know I was living the dream
Glorious
I know I was living the dream
Glorious
I know I know I was living the dream
Glorious
I know this glorious live has never been what it seems
I was walkin' around half asleep when I was living the dream

    General CommentYour all kinda right.

    I was the inspiration for the song. I wont say what summer we met but Art and I hooked up and I had no Idea he was anything special. I was a real estate agent I didn't do clubs or bars etc... We agreed to meet at a flea bag bar on SE side of Portland and I was so country dumb I came off looking like a saint. And he liked that :)

    theres another song that he got inspiration from at my house in the country near rail road tracks.. train going by as we .... :)

    General CommentRedFactory, I think you are right. The world and life pretty much sucks, but the girl he is with is Glorious which makes him believe everything will be fine. Great CD
