Tom MacDonald – Dreams Lyrics

Dreams By Tom MacDonald

Once upon a time, I told my mama ’bout passion
I’m not going to college, I’mma be a white rapper
Thoughts become words, and words become actions
Ten years later, a happily ever after
Everybody gotta go to school, get a job, buy a house, have a kid, get engaged, buy a car
We forgot about the dreams that are deep inside our hearts
Then we turned into our parents and then the psycho restarts
Does anyone remember how to dream?
Does anyone remember what it means?
Is everyone addicted to a screen?
Anyone anywhere or is everyone everywhere, okey dokey, was living in the machine?
Does anyone remember what it’s like?
Does anyone remember how to fight?
Will everybody really be alright?
Anyone anywhere or is everyone everywhere only dreaming when they fall asleep at night?

We forgot who we were before the school and work
Before we learned that life hurts so bad
Now we’re expecting the worst at every corner we turn
I wonder when will we learn to go back?

We all have dreams that no one believes in
Make me feel bad, I’ll knock your [?]
We all have dreams, real big dreams, big ass dreams
Don’t be sleeping ’cause you won’t see who you could be

Once upon a time, I told my homies I’d be famous
None of them believed me, but I knew that I would make it
Evicted from my condo, I was broke, but I was patient
Ten years later, I’m on everybody’s playlist
Everyone who graduated school has it worse, had a kid, got divorced, went in debt, went to work
They forgot about the dreams of taking over the world
Traded everything for money and power of pretty girls
Does anyone remember how to dream?
Does anyone remember what it means?
Is everyone addicted to a screen?
Anyone anywhere or is everyone everywhere, okey dokey, was living in the machine?
Does anyone remember what it’s like?
Does anyone remember how to fight?
Will everybody really be alright?
Anyone anywhere or is everyone everywhere only dreaming when they fall asleep at night?

We forgot who we were before the school and work
Before we learned that life hurts so bad
Now we’re expecting the worst at every corner we turn
I wonder when will we learn to go back?

We all have dreams that no one believes in
Make me feel bad, I’ll knock your [?]
We all have dreams, real big dreams, big ass dreams
Don’t be sleeping ’cause you won’t see who you could be

They call me a dreamer, say I’m out of my mind
They don’t believe in the magic that’s inside
Look in the mirror, you’re one of a kind
With two middle fingers, just give ’em a sign

We all have dreams that no one believes in
Make me feel bad, I’ll knock your [?]
We all have dreams, real big dreams, big ass dreams
Don’t be sleeping ’cause you won’t see who you could be
