DREAM ONE

[Jarboe]
no this isn’t just a letter
of “a way to let you know”
no this isn’t just a letter
of “a way to try and hold on”
no this isn’t just a letter
of “all the things i need to say to you”
no this isn’t just a letter
of “I just can’t live today”

you can open up a letter
from “a sad and empty place”
you can open up a letter
to “a lined and broken face”
no this isn’t just a letter
its “my only chance to grow”
no this isn’t just a letter
its “a way to let me go”

let me go
let me go

DREAM TWO

[Jarboe]
here I am
i find myself unafraid
walking a tight rope
over a raging, a life giving open sea
and i’m alone here
arms spread out to the night sky
dawn’s about to break
and i hear the sea call out to me:
“DIVE IN”
“DIVE IN”
“DIVE IN AND… BREATHE !!!!!”

DREAM THREE

[Jarboe]
sit next to me, drink…

I’ll never forget that day
the way you walked into those rooms
that magic…

drink…
magic eyes

sit next to me and drink
sweet dream
the way you walked into those rooms

i’ll never forget that day…

drink…

the way you walked into those rooms
that magic room
magic room…
the magic way…
the magic ….
dream..way

magic eyes…

i’ll never forget that
dream

DREAM FOUR

[Jarboe]
” I don’t regret a thing ”

DREAM FIVE

[Jarboe]
in dreams
you’ll be…
you’re free…
you’ll fly…
to a place you never have seen

in dreams
there’s love
enough for everyone
there is love for everyone

in dreams
i sit and smoke the pipe of peace
with John Lennon
with John Lennon
i sit and smoke the smoke the pipe of peace

in dreams
i sing a song with Janis Joplin
in my dreams i changed it
i hold Kurt and Jim and Alexander…

in dreams i stopped the bullet
and John and Robert and Martin
they live again
they live again
they live again
they all live again

in dreams I sing a song with my father
i hold my brother’s hand
he doesn’t fall
i hear my mother laugh
i hold her close
i keep her safe
i take her pain away

i take her pain away

our loved ones
all live again
they all live again
they all live again
in my dreams they all live again
they all live again

i take her pain away

they all live again

there’s love for everyone

live again

they all live again

i take her pain away

“LIVE AGAIN”

DREAM SEVEN

[Jarboe]
(child’s voice sing song))

i can run faster than you can
i know the answer, not you, man
i am brighter than you are
i am you before they changed you

you were born as me
you were born to be

don’t listen to them
don’t listen to imprint
don’t listen to them
don’t listen to imprint
you can
yes, you can
you can
yes, you can
you can
yes, you CAN !

a la la la
a la la la

(adult’s voice, choir behind her)

you can run faster than they can
you know the answer, you know, man
you are brighter than they are
you are before they changed you

you were born as me
you were born to be
you were born as you
you were born as you

don’t listen to them
don’t listen to them
don’t listen to imprint
society imprint
don’t listen to imprint
cultural imprint
don’t listen to them
YOU

AT FIRST LIGHT WE TAKE THE MOUNTAIN
MAY THE GODS PROTECT THESE BONES
SEE THE VALLEY FAR BELOW
