The Dream

PARENTS: we need a young boy to act in THE DREAM music video about the earth at peace. He should be easily instructed, about 6-9 yrs old. The video will be filmed in early August in the Paris/Lexington area, and his part will be completed in one afternoon. Parents please email a photo and parent contact info to radio@woodsongs.com

 

THE DREAM is an original song about the Earth at peace. It started out as a simple folk song, but it sounded too limited for such a grand concept. The more I thought about it, the universal need for Peace in this world had to sound as grand as the universe itself. A full 61-piece symphony orchestra turns the song into a production as massive … and as simple … as the concept itself. This is not a passive listen, you might take a few minutes, listen to the whole song with the volume high. There is a lot going on musically.

Recording The Dream is one of the most difficult, gut wrenching projects I ever got involved with. I hope you come along for the ride … and listen LOUD. The world at peace is the loudest silence in human history:

Lyrics to THE DREAM

 

THE DREAM (for the PDF click here) words and music Michael Johnathon

copyright Michael Johnathon/Rachel Aubrey Music/BMI

Give me a day, when the sun is shining Give me a day, when the rain don’t fall Give me a day, when the city is singing And then I’ll cry, a long , hard cry

Give me a night, alone in the darkness Give me a night, at my true love’s side Give me a night, when my children are dreamin’ And then I’ll cry, a long, hard cry

(Noche en paz “Peaceful night”-SPANISH)

Give me a dream, that I wanna keep dreamin’ Give me a dream, I can fly through the sky Give me a dream, all the people are dreamin’ And then I’ll cry, a long, hard cry

(Miechta “Dream”-RUSSIAN)

Give me a war, where the people keep living Give me a war, where the innocent survive Give me a war, where the leaders are learning And then I’ll cry, a long, hard cry

Give me a tear, from the joys of laughter Give me a tear, of a happy day Give me a tear, of the peace that we’re after And then I’ll cry, a long hard cry And then I’ll cry, a long, hard cry

(La larme du monde “Teardrop from the eyes of the world”-FRENCH) (La Paix “Peace”-FRENCH)
