Sound Of A Million Dreams (Single)

lyrics

Seger was singing words I could believe in
And "Mainstreet" was my street that night
So I called Samantha and asked her to dance with me
Under the pale moon light
She's not with me now, but she can always be found
When I rewind that radio dial
Like it was then I feel her on my skin
And I'm back there for a while

So I labor for hours 'cause I know the power
Of a song when a song hits you right
Pouring my soul into stories of life
Hoping someone will hear one tonight
And maybe my voice will cut through the noise
And bring back an old memory
And out of these piano keys comes the sound
The sound of a million dreams

My 18th summer I was a cocky up and come'er
And cranking up "Born to Run"
Turned left out the drive with the pistons open wide
And I came back the prodigal son
My spirit was broken, mamma threw the door open
Said I "love you", not I told you so
When I hear "Mamma Tried" I still break down and cry
And pull to the side of the road

So I labor for hours 'cause I know the power
Of a song when a song hits you right
Pouring my soul into stories of life
Hoping someone will hear one tonight
And maybe my voice will cut through the noise
And bring back an old memory
And out of these piano keys comes the sound
The sound of a million dreams

So I labor for hours 'cause I know the power
Of a song when a song hits you right
Pouring my soul into stories of life
Hoping someone will hear one tonight
Maybe my voice will cut through the noise
And stir up an old memory
And out of these piano keys comes the sound
The sound of a million dreams
