The Sound of a Million Dreams

Album: The Sound of a Million Dreams (2011)
  • Seger was singin' words I could believe in
    And Mainstreet was my street that night
    So I called up Samantha
    And asked her the chance of us runnin' out neath the moon light
    Well shes not with me now, she can always be found
    When I rewind the radio dial
    And 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
    Poured my soul into stories of life
    Hopin' 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

    My 18th summer I was a cocky up and come'er
    Crankin' up "Born To Run"
    Turn left out the drive with the pistons open wide
    And I came back a prodigal son

    My spirit was broken, she threw the door open
    I love you not I told you so
    When I hear mama tried I still break down and cry
    And pull to the side of the road

    And I labor for hours 'cause I know the power of a song
    When a song hits you right
    Poured my soul into stories of life
    Hopin' 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

    So I labor for hours 'cause I know the power of a song
    When a song hits you right
    Poured my soul into stories of life
    Hopin' 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
