Dreamweaver

This one is thanks to a co-worker, as a result of a coffee break debate on whether love at first sight is possible. I think I lost the debate and this song was my punishment.

Some fun facts; the song was featured in Wayne’s World (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im8uIoq1fjs) and in the opening credits for The People VS Larry Flint.

Gary Wrights’ official site has some fun sites fun facts (http://www.thedreamweaver.com/) like: the songs was inspired by a trip Gary took to India with George Harrison; is done with keyboards and drums, no guitar, very unusual for the 70’s. He has collaborated with/worked with George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones.

Gary Wright fronted Spooky Tooth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spooky_Tooth)  famous for the song That Was Only Yesterday (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGxRstWAZBc)

I have just closed my eyes again

Climbed aboard the Dream Weaver train

Driver take away my worries of today

And leave tomorrow behind

Dream Weaver, I believe you can get me through the night

Dream Weaver, I believe we can reach the morning light

Fly me high through the starry skies

Or maybe to an astral plane

Cross the highways of fantasy

Help me to forget today’s pain

Dream Weaver, I believe you can get me through the night

Dream Weaver, I believe we can reach the morning light

Though the dawn may be coming soon

There still may be some time

Fly me away to the bright side of the moon

And meet me on the other side

Dream Weaver, I believe you can get me through the night

Dream Weaver, I believe we can reach the morning light
