Dreaming

From the Songs from the Sea album, this is a mellow and melancholy Ariel song, which usually isn't my thing but the lovely background piano music does a tremendous job accompanying Jodi's lovely vocals.

(printable version)

Ariel:
Dear friend, I got your note today, asking me what it's like to be a mermaid? Well, I've given it a lot of thought.

There are ways we're not the same
When it comes to running games and races
Nobody calls my name
And you don't swim as fast as I can
There's really just no use in trying
No, you'll only feel slow

I hear the music playing
That's when I come up to watch you dancing
How do you move that way?
And I know that your schools aren't like my schools
You have recess, we have tide pools
Yet, I'm willing to bet

That dreaming is something that we both know how to do
You wish upon that evening star and hope that it comes true
Dreams connect us even when we're far apart
'Cos dreams come from inside your heart

I found a golden ring
And I don't know what it's purpose is
This curious, shining thing
And when you wish what do you long for
What's right for you might still be wrong for
Me, but we might agree

That dreaming is something that we both know how to do
You wish upon that evening star and hope that it comes true
Dreams connect us even when we're far apart
'Cos dreams come from inside your heart

I know I'm not really part of your world
But deep in my heart I'm like every other girl

And dreaming is something that we both know how to do
You wish upon that evening star and hope that it comes true
Dreams connect us even when we're far apart
'Cos dreams come from inside your heart
