"Rock & Roll Dreams Come Through" as written by and Jim Steinman....
You can't run away forever
But there's nothing wrong with getting a good head start.
You want to shut out the night

You want to shut down the sun

you want to shut away the pieces of a broken heart.

Think of how we'd lay down together

We'd be listening to the radio so loud and so strong.
Every golden nugget coming like a gift of the gods.
Someone must have blessed us when he gave us those songs

I treasure your love
I never want to lose it

You've been through the fires of hell
And I know you've got the ashes to prove it.
I treasure your love

I want to show you how to use it

You've been through a lot of pain in the dirt
And I know you've got the scars to prove it.

Remember everything that I told you
And I'm telling you again that it's true.
When you're alone and afraid and you're completely amazed
To find there's nothing anybody can do

Keep on believing
And you'll discover baby:

There's always something magic

There's always something new

And when you really
really need it the most
That's when rock and roll dreams come through.
The beat is yours forever
the beat is always new

And when you really
really need it the most
That's when rock and roll dreams come through . . . for you.

I treasure you love
. . .

Remember everything that I told you
And I'm telling you again that it's true.
You're never alone cause you can put on the phones
And let the drummer tell your heart what to do.
Keep on believing and you'll discover baby:
10

There's always something magic
. . .

The beat is yours forever -
That's when rock and roll dreams come through.
The beat is yours forever - . . .

    General CommentI read somewhere that Rory Dodd sang “Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through” on Jim’s “Bad For Good” album. That lead me to check further into this. Wikipedia confirms Rory as singing 3 songs, actually. But, as I read on, my jaw dropped at the Well-Known Talent associated with this album (and all of Jim’s stuff I researched)!
    It’s unbelievable how he has the ability (talent) to work with EVERYBODY who’s ANYBODY! That Jimmy is In his very own category! And, he’s not my favorite (that goes to Pete Townshend/The Who), though my words may have seemed to say otherwise. I just wanted to share that he’s Undeniably Amazing....and an interesting character to learn about, for sure. It was fun spending time getting informed about Jim Steinman. Try it, you’ll like it...
