Theme Song!

Rewrite Dream Ending

This is sung to the tune of the first two verses and chorus of We Are the World by Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson. It’s inspired by the events surrounding a dream I once had, as is described in an earlier post.

FIRST VERSE
Stressful time, didn’t know what I should do
When the choice was parents’ wants or mine
There were bodies packed on ground
In the dream that came to help
It was clear
Their lives were not for me 

Woke up in dream, suitcases in my hands
“Let me out, let me out of here,” I yelled
(1-and-) I ran and ran
Heavy suitcases weighed down
The new truth
Was the States held my real home

CHORUS
Sung sweetly, melodically, gently
Rewrite dream ending
Rewrite my future
(1-and-) Identify the contents of suitcases
Then leave behind

Oh my destiny’s calling
I’m choosing my own life

It’s true
It makes for recovery
Being who we are

SECOND VERSE
First line sung by Dionne Warwick: wheeeeeen couldn’t get ooouuut
When couldn’t get out, waking decision was clear
Had to stay safe by staying away
Now CFS has taught, by opening my heart
Realitynibs, must shine and lighten baggage

REPEAT CHORUS
This time with Bruce Springsteen belting it out and backed by a choir
Rewrite dream ending
Rewrite my future
(1-and-) Identify the contents of suitcases
Then leave behind

Oh my destiny’s calling
I’m choosing my own life

It’s true
It makes for recovery
Being who we are

Repeat chorus

Repeat final chorus verse and fade

Oh my God, good or bad, I can’t believe I got this bloody song done. It’s taken over my brain!
