DREAM ON

"For me this song sums up the shit you put up with when you're in a new band. Only one in fifty people who write about you pick up on the music. Most of the critics panned our first album, and said we were ripping off the stones. And I think 'Dream On' is a great song, but it was two or three years before people really got to hear it. That's a good barometer of my anger at the press, which I still have. 'Dream On' came of me playing piano when I was about seventeen or eighteen, and I didn't know anything about writing a song. It was just this little...sonnet that I started playing one day. I never thought then it would end up being a real song or anything" ~Steven Tyler

DREAM ON

 EVERY TIME THAT I LOOK IN THE MIRROR,
 ALL THESE LINES ON MY FACE GETTIN' CLEARER.
 THE PAST IS GONE;
 IT WENT BY LIKE DUST TO DAWN
 ISN'T THAT THE WAY
 EVERYBODY'S GOT THEIR DUES IN LIFE TO PAY?
 
 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,
 LIVED AND LEARNED FROM FOOLS AND FROM SAGES.
 YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE,
 ALL THESE THINGS COME BACK TO YOU.
 
 SING WITH ME,
 SING FOR THE YEARS,
 SING FOR THE LAUGHTER N' 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, DREAM ON, DREAM ON, DREAM ON.
 DREAM ON, DREAM ON, DREAM ON, AH. AH.
 
 SING WITH ME,
 SING FOR THE YEARS,
 SING FOR THE LAUGHTER N' SING FOR THE TEARS.
 SING WITH ME
 IF IT'S JUST FOR TODAY,
 MAYBE TOMORROW THE GOOD LORD WILL TAKE YOU AWAY.
