about

We all hope this will happen to us.
We all want good things to come our way.
When sometimes its all we can hope for is to have our dreams come true.

From the gentle natured sound and style of Silent Stranger, this is a pretty chill song.
The acoustic guitar strums a soft, warm opening.
There are many redeeming qualities working for the song.
The vocalist more than fits the bill with her dreamy, angelic sound and rich, powerful harmonies.
She sings with a truly impressive approach that is emotionally empowering. Inspiring in its tone and intention.
Through the lyricism it has real words sung with a slight-rasp, sweetened with smoothed out harmonies.
All with heartfelt, thought provoking words that many of us can relate to.
The music is kept simple and plays to the strengths of the vocalist by setting up a sweetened guitar melody on this song with maybe a bit of help from the layered harmonies.
For me, the magic truly lies in the chorus of this gentle-giant of a song, for what begins subtly, will build as it plays and by the time the chorus and harmonies hit, you get a full-dose of the real power and beauty in those vocal combinations and layered textures that bring the words to life with perfectly matching energy and emotion.
“Something About A Dream (Acoustic)” highlights the strengths in the song-writing.
Definitely solid in performance with real soaring heights to the vocal patterns and dynamics that’ll certainly keep your attention.

lyrics

Something About a Dream (Acoustic)


Feel the glow of morning light
Makes you think of your endless plight
Your heart can sense, the strain begin
Don’t fail now you’ll always win

You may think, you’re slowing down
Never despair, you’re not loosing ground
It seems so close, like you're done
With the hope, you've almost won


Some folks say, there’s no way, but still you try…I know why
From what I’ve seen, there’s something about a dream


Judge yourself, from what they've said
Keep in mind, its the angst you dread
You think your world, is doing fine
Look around, you may not have much time

Words of doubt getting in your way
They speak to you everyday
"Its an uphill climb", they all preach
So your dreams get further out of reach


Some folks say, there’s no way, but still you try…I know why
From what I’ve seen, there’s something about a dream


Striving through your life, makes you want to lay down, but you don’t
Can’t you hear it, coming in the air there’s a sound, you don't know
Who knows if it strikes fear in your heart to give in, but you won’t
Cause you know I won't be there, when you really need me


Some folks say, there’s no way, but still you try…I know why
From what I’ve seen, there’s something about a dream


Day is done and you're not at home
Stay on your path or you'll begin to roam
Failing now will give you such a scare
Your dreams could die, like in a nightmare

Like the sun, that burns so bright
The stars all shine in the sky tonight
For those who had tried, how could you know
You’d find the end of your rainbow


Some folks say, there’s no way, but still you try…I know why
From what I’ve seen, there’s something about a dream
Something about a dream
Something about a dream
