"That's Some Dream" as written by Keith Michael Goodwin, Daniel Eliezer Schwartz and Timothy John Arnold....
There's a time in our lives
we start again on writing our part
as the story goes on it's the rule that we remember our lines

I know everyone would want me to say
that I'm not afraid to be alone

I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai
I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai

There's a place in my head
it must be called the super motel
I can stay the whole night
and think about the girl in her shell

I know everyone would want me to say
that I'm not afraid to be alone

I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai
I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai

*guitar solo*

I know everyone would want me to say
that I'm not afraid to be alone

I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai
I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay
Lai dai dai

I'm gonna live I'm alright,
I'm gonna die it's alright, I'm okay

That's some dream.

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song! I think it's about him realizing that it's okay to be afraid even though people tell him not to be. Even though people tell him not to be afraid to be alone, and that it's part of life. The part where he says, "There's a place in my head it must be called the super motel I can stay the whole night and think about the girl in her shell" is about how all of his thoughts go around in his head at night like a motel and he's thinking about a girl that is shy? and won't talk to him maybe?

    Anyway, i think this is a beautiful song and it reminded me that everyone feels insecure and has these worries. it's part of what makes us human. It's alright.

    That's Some Dream
    Schwartz: This was one of those songs that woke me up in the middle of the night. It forced me to write it so I don't know if I can even take credit. Life is precious and short, and I don't want to waste one minute of it. That's the basic meaning of the lyrics. I also write a lot of songs that deal with the subject of love, and this was one time I wanted to keep it a little more vague. It's hard to remember since it all happened really fast, but I immediately had high hopes for the song. It's been great that people seem to really connect with this one because I almost feel like I didn't even write it. As far as the music goes, I was again going for really simple. I like to take chords that are very basic and find a melody in them without even changing them at all. This is the perfect example of that working out right.
