Music Is... Aerosmith: Dream On (single)

Released January 1973

Featuring "Dream On"
Their debut album spawned their first single and one of my favorite songs in this world: "Dream On". I love it. I feel like sort of a hypocrite. Not in that I dogged these guys or anything. I like to credit myself on paying attention to the lyrics as well as the melody and beat. I feel I didn't do that with this track until a few months ago. I had always had the notion that it was a very meaningful song but as I mentioned I didn't decide to dig until a month or so into this year.

If your like me you could stand to look at a lyrics sheet from time to time. Not that I couldn't understand what he was saying per-say but seeing them up close makes things a little clearer.

every time that I look in the mirror
all these lines on my face getting clearer
the past is gone
it went by like dusk to dawn
isn't that the way
everybody's got their dues in life to pay

yeah, I know nobody knows
where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody's sin
you got to lose to know how to win

half my life's in books' written pages
live and learn from fools and from sages
you know it's true
all the things come back to you

sing with me, sing for the years
sing for the laughter and sing for the tears
sing with me, if it's just for today
maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

dream on, dream on, dream on,
dream yourself a dream come true
dream on, dream on, dream on,
and dream until your dream comes true
dream on
A great song from a great band, check it out.
