You’ve probably heard someone say “in your dreams” when they think someone else has exaggerated something.
Well, when I started writing the first song in my jazzy collection of lullaby songs “Lullabye Bye”, I wasn’t thinking of that expression at all…at least not for that reason.
I’ve never had any kids, and some people might think that it would be odd for a childless guy to write music for kids. I don’t…because even though I never had any of my own…I always seem to have a way with kids. For some goofy reason, they seem to like me. Maybe it’s because I’m just as goofy as them. 🙂
When I started writing “In Your Dreams“, I was thinking of holding a little boy or girl who’s still too young to even talk. I imagined the child asleep in my arms…and what he or she might be dreaming of in that tiny, growing brain.
It figured it would be natural to pose unanswerable questions and then give an answer to them. For instance, no tiny child can tell you what they dream. And I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t remember any of my infant sleep wanderings. So, I thought…hmm…it seems logical that babies CAN dream. But no matter how wondrous those dreams would be, I’d just want to sing to my child and let them know I’ll be here whenever you wake up. You’re safe. So…the following words came out. And you can hear it free on the Lullaby Songs page.
