"Frank's Theme" as written by and Tom Waits....
Dream away the tears in your eyes
Dream away your sorrows
Dream away all your goodbyes
Dream away tomorrow
I promise when the sun comes up
I promise I'll be true
and just like before the band starts to play
they always play your favorite tune
and dream awawy when everyone's gone
dream away your grey skies tooo
dream away and nothing is wrong
dreams have wishes that are waiting for you
and up ahead the road is turning
turning for you and me
and just like before
the band starts to play
now there's that twinkle in your eye
and dream away

    General CommentMy name is frank....and god i love Tom Waits. His style just takes you to a different place, in a totally different time. Not accompanied by much he makes his presence strong.

    General CommentThis song is probably my fave in Franks Wild Years, which is my favourite Waits album. So beautiful... dream away...

    General CommentThis song is about escapism. The character Frank is, here and in the film Big Time, a deeply troubled man who suffered many losses in life, but always deludes himself he's going to make it big someday. Very recognizable for some, especially me.
