Nick Hanley – “That’s The Way Dreams Are”

Sorry for the lack of posts lately… I had another weekend of performances for a musical that my wonderfully talented Aunt wrote. You can learn more about it HERE. Sunday night, the cast and crew gathered for a really nice party and of course the guitar was passed around. Aoife Clancy played a beautiful song by her friend, Nick Hanley that I’m still thinking about… check out these words:

“I could almost see your face, I was that close to you
Could have picked your pocket if I wanted to
I was almost there in your arms
Almost there in your arms
I got that far, cause that’s the way dreams are

I could hear a guitar play, some old romantic tune
You said, why don’t you stay and I said yes too soon
I was almost over the moon
Almost over the moon
I got that far, cause that’s the way dreams are

Don’t want to wake up and find that there’s nobody
Nobody waking with me
I want to spend my time with some body
Someone like you, easy and free

I was almost there in your arms
Almost there in your arms
I got that far, cause that’s the way dreams are

We made plans and we make love
We said what lovers say
Said we’d do it all again..some other day
But I could feel you slipping away
Feel you slipping away
I got that far, cause that’s the way..dreams are
I got that far, cause that’s the way dreams are”
