House Of A Thousand Dreams

Album: Waking Up Laughing (2007)
  • He says, 'I'm just a man, I work with my hands
    But lately no work has been around
    I wish that I could put more on the table
    Provide the life I'm sure my family dreams about

    But there's cracks in all the walls and all the windows
    And the flies, they find their way in through the screen
    I just pray that hope will go on living
    In this house of a thousand dreams.'

    She says, 'my husband's a good man
    Gives all that he can
    I know he thinks he's let me down
    I just want him and the children to be happy
    It's not always easy, but it's all I dream about

    So I'll find some yard-sale curtains for the windows
    And I'll sew some yellow trim along the seams
    And I'll keep praying hope will go on living
    In this house of a thousand dreams.'

    The boy says, 'my daddy's a strong man
    My mama, she loves him
    And they love my brother and sister and me
    Sometimes at night we lay out in the backyard
    And take turns wishing on the first star we see

    And the crickets always sing outside the windows
    And I love to feel the wind blow through the screen
    And I sure hope that we can live forever
    In this house of a thousand dreams.'

    'Yeah, I sure hope that we can live forever
    In this house of a thousand dreams.' Writer/s: BILLY MONTANA, ILYA TOSHINSKY, TAMMY WAGONER
