"Dream On" as written by and Steven Tyler....
Every time that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, just like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way?
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where does it go
Yeah, I know, it's everybody's sin
You got to lose to know just how to win

Half my life is in books' written pages
Lived and learned from fools and from sages
You know it's true
All these things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you away

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you away

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you away

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you away, hey oh

Dream on, dream on, dream on
Dream until your dream comes true

Dream on, dream on, dream on
Dream until your dream comes true

Dream on, dream on, dream on
So won't you
Dream on, dream on, dream on

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you away

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you away

So won't you dream?
So won't you dream?

    General CommentI wasn't really sure how well this song would work out with her voice, but I've got to say that, I think the arrangement with the piano and soft female voice probably works just as good... if not better... than the original.

    General CommentI heard that Brooke did not want to include this song on the album but she was pressured into it (by her manager?? Not sure if it was Tim Simms).
    I prefer her cover of 'Yellow' over this, I'm not a big fan of this song to begin with - but it certainly sounds fine and I won't skip over it when I have the CD on - she did a great job with what she was working with.

    General CommentStrange, but true. I'm sitting in a Shoney's in SWVA at a meeting about a women's business conference entitled, "Dream Big". So, I'm noshing on my fries while we're talking and this song comes on over the intercom. I literally stopped eating to listen to the words of this, since everytime prior to this I'd heard Steven Tyler screaming like a banshee on this. And it was MAGICAL. Brooke's version of this is so full of genuine yearning and I get such a sense of "missed opportunities" when she sings it. Unlike the Aerosmith vsn which just makes me want to put my fist through the windshield of my car because I'm so angry over what I have missed. Her version brings the tears. Aerosmith's makes my blood boil. Incredible that two completely different artists could induce such strong responses from the same song. GOOD STUFF...glad she did this one.
