Livin' on Dreams
-- Fred Tackett, Craig Fuller, Bill Payne, Paul Barrere

Another grey dawn another day gone
Deeper in debt as the night draws in
There's something inside me
Rings like a melody
Pullin' my heart like a frozen wind
 
Seems like most of my life's spent gettin' by day to day
Fendin' off new hard times arrival
Little by little I try as the days go by
Waitin' around on some kind of luck's revival
 
There's a full moon risin' just about midnight
A high tide comin' 'round just about dawn
But I know it can't last
Livin' on dreams and the shadows they cast
Got to be strong
One of these days I gotta be gone
Been livin' on dreams just a little too long
 
The sleep comes hard and money does too
So I wake up worried in the mornin' light
As the sun comes through the tears in the window shades
It don't seem fair that it has to be such a fight
The women keep comin' 'round
Spendin' my hard earned pay
Bent on the minimization of my survival
Been holdin' me down
But one fine day
Gonna break these chains of denial
 
There's a full moon risin' just about midnight
A high tide comin' 'round just about dawn
But I know it can't last
Livin' on dreams and the shadows they cast
Got to be strong
One of these days I gotta be gone
Been livin' on dreams just a little too long
 
Little by little I try as the days go by
To find some way to break these chains of denial
 
There's a full moon risin' just about midnight
A high tide comin' 'round just about dawn
But I know it can't last
Livin' on dreams and the shadows they cast
Got to be strong
One of these days I gotta be gone
Been livin' on dreams just a little too long
