More Than A Dream

We are dreamers. By our very nature, as humans, we imagine a future and then begin taking actions to turn it into reality. It’s the very essence of our creativity—our life. That generative process is happening beneath every action we take. One of the most sacred acts is to create relationship—deep, abiding connection with another person. The value we get in return is far beyond any other reward, and we cherish those living, breathing, dynamic bonds with another kindred spirit.

This song is a reflection on our personal experience in trying to create an enduring partnership together, which of course, is not an easy dream to make into reality. And then keeping it alive and vital is another thing altogether. However, in our view, it’s worth every ounce of effort—the result is more than a dream, and far beyond what appears in our everyday reality.



Sometimes late at night
Just before the light breaks through
I wake from a dream
To find it’s true
I’m here with you

Turning to watch you sleep
I can hear the sounds of your breathing
Softly repeat, align with mine
Matching breath for breath

Day after day
Scattered throughout are traces
Moments we’ve shared together
Making magic times, ours alone

Through my eyes
I can see our future
All that we hoped and dreamed
Our life to be is coming true

Sometimes late at night
As the moon light streams through the window
More than a dream
I know it’s true
I’m here with you
