"Dreamer" as written by and Christopher Alan Helme....
Halfway gone, and halfway back,
You're always dreaming' 'bout what you lack.
You're takin' your time from your busy day,
To sit by the track and watch the train roll away.

[Chorus:]
Dreamer I know what you're thinkin',
I can see it in your face.
Maybe before you were happy,
But now your thoughts aren't of this place.

You've begun to change now baby, I don't see.
Oh but I know you well and it's clear to me.
You think chains hold you here now baby, but they don't exist.
You don't have to stay mama, I won't insist.

[Chorus]

So take the train today, and don't look back again.
Live the dreams you have, don't dwell on what has been.
Your future's brighter now, there's brighter days ahead.
Any sad farewell words, better left unsaid.

[Chorus]

Maybe before you were happy, but now your thoughts aren't of this place.
I only wish you were with me, someone like you can't be replaced.

    General CommentOn one of Tommy's Energy Broadcasts CD's:

    "There's a little town in England called 'Walton on Thames' and this song was written for someone in that town."

    General CommentWhoops, the correct quote is:

    "There's a little town in England called 'Walton on Thames' which is sort of south of London... and this song was written for someone in that town, this song is called 'Dreamer'."
