"The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of" as written by and Carly Simon....
Take a look around now
Change the direction
Adjust the tuning
Try a new translation
Don't look at your man in the same old way
Take a new picture
Just because you don't see shooting stars
Doesn't mean it isn't perfect
Can't you see...

It's the stuff that dreams are made of
It's the slow and steady fire
It's the stuff that dreams are made of
It's your heart and soul's desire
It's the stuff that dreams are made of

So what's this about your best friend?
She's got a brand new shiny boy
And they're moving out to Malibu
To play with all his pretty toys
And you feel closed in by the same four walls
The same old conversation
With the same old guy you've know for years
But use your imagination
And you will see....

It's the stuff that dreams are made of
It's the slow and steady fire
It's the stuff that dreams are made of
It's your heart and soul's desire
It's the stuff that dreams are made of

What if the Prince on the horse in your fairytale
Is right here in disguise
And what if the stars you've been reaching so high for
Are shining in his eyes

Don't look at yourself in the same old way
Take another picture
Shoot the stars off in your own backyard
Don't look any further
And you will see
It's the stuff that dreams are made of....

    General Comment This is inspiring. Within the facade of the familiar lies "the stuff that dreams are made of." Sometimes when life seems dull and routine we need to adjust our thinking; to look deeper. People often have all these big dreams and they look right past the stuff that's right in front of them. This song also reminds me of the cotton commercials where people are doing simple things like an old lady hanging her laundry out on the clothesline,smiling at the fresh detergent smell..and theres a man,woman and girl child wearing soft cotton clothing and walking together.. I'm going to make some tea now. So long..
