Dreamin' Dreams That Don't Come True

Written By: John Siebron Brock

Dreamin' dreams that don't come true and probably never will
Writin' songs that don't get sung yet I keep writing still
So won't you stop for just an hour
Said the young man to his queen
And she said none o' this really matters
Until you're sayin what you really mean

I'm walkin' up to Damascus on the narrow and the straight
Climbin' up Jacob's ladder, headed straight for the pearly gate
But their ain't no road to paradise unless you're willing to feel some pain
And there ain't no silver lining when you're camped out in the rain

I got rings on all my fingers
I got trophies on the wall
I got the closely guarded password to the doorway down the hall
But I got holes in all my pockets
You got to pay before you play
And the queen of the silver dollars, she's a bitch to break away

I'm dreamin dreams that don't come true and probably never will
Writing songs that don't get sung, yet I keep writin' still
So won't you stop for just an hour and I'll sing you a love song
And if you like I can say I wrote it just for you
