Lyrics

What Were You Dreaming? 
by Michael Lyon

What were you dreaming before it was light?  
What special place did you go for the night?  
Off on a trip of my own, who knows where  
What a surprise, awaiting me there  

There stood my father, again, in his prime  
Little had changed after all of this time  
Honor the past, thought I’d learned this by now  
But how to thank him, I still don’t know how  

Live to dream, rest in peace, wake to wonders that never cease  
How do you, how did he, make the moment a masterpiece?  

My father, the artist, his dreams came true  
The paintings he left me, I have just a few  
My brother and sister, might well feel the same  
If not for our lives, he’d have surely found fame  

What are you dreaming, what did you decide?  
Which new horizons are opening wide?  
Welcome a glimpse of a face you’ve known well -  
someone who helped you stand up when you fell  

Live to dream, rest in peace, wake to wonders that never cease  
How do you, how did he, make the moment a masterpiece?
