About this song (lyrics below)
Set out to do something that other people think is impossible and you can still succeed provided YOU think it’s possible.
The World tends to accept whatever our self judgment is.
If we walk around with our dream vividly “IMAXed” on our mental movie screen, we will tend to move and breathe and think according to that internal vision…
Give it a shot today (and every day) and see what happens…
Ultimately this song is about taking back your dreams from the inadvertent “dream thieves” in your life.
BTW It’s not their fault you bought into their limited beliefs or world view… However, you no longer have the luxury of being a victim in your thinking… So it’s up to YOU to stop giving up on it…
Just saying’ :o)
p.s. awesome arrangement by Joe Mennonna and brilliant Guitar by my long time musical hero Gene Moore.
Field of Dreams (Take A Ride With Me)
Song #320 | 7/21/02 | CD: Thirsty For The Sky
When I was a young boy I dreamed a mighty dream
But I told it to the dream thieves and they laughed and called me “green”
They told me I should wake up to reality
They said that I had better take responsibility
So I got myself a good job I and went to school at night
I followed to the letter all their sound advice
I got a better job and then a bigger house and car
I had my benefits and a dozen credit cards
Take a ride with me, Take a ride and see
Take a ride with me, To your field of dreams
One night I could not sleep and so I went out for a walk
It seemed as if the moonlight and the stars began to talk
They whispered and they sang about my long forgotten dream
They told me I could live it. It was mine still to redeem
The moon said I should listen to that still small voice inside
Instead of to the dream thieves because the dream thieves have to lie
They have to steal from you ‘cause they’ve been robbed right to the bone
But if you dare to live your dream, they just might find their own
Why do you see the possibilities?
Why do you live a mighty dream lately?
Why do you listen to your own wisdom?
Why do you know to ask the right questions?
So if you are a young boy or a young girl in your heart
Now is the time to give that mighty dream of yours a start
If you come to a crossroads where you need to choose
Choose the “path with heart” and it will give you dancing shoes
Why do you see the possibilities?…
