"People Say" as written by Antony Genn and Martin Slattery....
i was born in a northern town on the southern side
taught to expect nothing, be happy with what it provided
but i never felt at home no matter what i did
you can't fit a square peg into a round hole
and that's just the way it is
then everything i'd seen would make me want to dream my life away

people say i am just a dreamer
but hey that's not right with me, no way
i've heard it said that i live in a dream world
but i believe in the things i've seen
this is real to me

so i found my way to a life in a different town
i saw familiar faces and well known places
as i walked around
i could feel for the first time this is where i could shine
i could hold my head up high instead
and i could own what's mine
'cause there's one thing that i know, oh
my instincts are the only things i own

people say that i am just a dreamer
but hey that's not right with me, no way
i've heard it said that i live in a dream world
but i believe in the things i've seen
this is real to me

people always told me, wake up and get into the real world
you can't run around like a kid your whole life
you're just chasing rainbows
grow up and get a life my son
get your head out of the clouds
money don't grow on trees and besides
that world is not for you anyhow
well who was the richest man in vienna when mozart was alive?
who gives a fuck?
and who was the guy living in the big house on the hill looking down on van gogh?
who gives a fuck?
and who was ben benjamin, james jameson, fat cat accountant?
who gives a fuck?
and who is the richest man or woman listening to this tune right now?
who gives a flying fuck?

people say i am just a dreamer
well hey that's not right with me
i've heard it said i live in a dream world
but i believe in the things i've seen

it's real to me.
