Lori McKenna - The Dream Lyrics



I had a dream last night that the two of you met
You were sitting side by side, talking like old friends
You looked just like I remember, wearing that coat from 85
You were smiling like you are right now, all free and full of wild
I had a dream last night that the two of you met

He was telling you a story, I’m not sure which one it was
Using his hands to mark out something, maybe the size of his love
He never really spelled that out when he was down here on the ground
But it’s all right there, in between the words and I can hear it clearly now
I had a dream last night that the two of you met

Yeah, he was something, he was one of a kind
And you would have loved him if you were born in his time
But he’s somewhere in your eyes
Between Heaven and Earth, it’s a damn long view
I had a dream last night that the two of you met

I was struck by the vision, the kind of dream you dream to dream
And whatever you two talked about, that’s between you and him, not me
I hope he told you what’s important, what to let go and what to hold
And if he mentioned life is short, well, that’s because he knows
I had a dream last night that the two of you met

Yeah, he was something, he was one of a kind
You would have loved him if you were born in his time
But he’s somewhere in your eyes
Between Heaven and Earth, it’s a damn long, damn long view
Damn long view

I had a dream last night that the two of you met
You were sitting side by side talking like old friends
