Music Prompt # 53: “Dreams” by Corrs

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another exciting week at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, this is Sanaa Rizvi, your kind hostess this week with a music video that’s bound to get your heart stirring.

Sigh. Dreams. We all have them don’t we? It is said that the future belongs to those who
believe in the beauty of their dreams. Which is why this week I want to urge you all to go out and chase your dreams. Forget about what people think. Pay no mind to the skeptic, pessimistic attitude of people; who shun the idea that anything is possible as long as you believe. If you’re good at something – anything for that matter – then please follow your instincts.

And now, without further ado, here’s presenting this week’s song choice. Have fun.

Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down
It’s only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness
Like a heartbeat, drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost
And what you had
And what you lost

Yeah, thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Yeah, women they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know, you’ll know

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
Well, it’s only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams
And have you any dreams you’d like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness
Like a heartbeat, drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost
What you had
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Yeah women they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean
You’ll know, you’ll know, you’ll know, you’ll know, you’ll know, you’ll know
Heartbeat drives you mad, remember what you had

  1. Think it was a Fleetwood Mac original. That’s the version I remember, and I hate to say, but like better. Doesn’t mean I don’t have an entry though. And, I’m sure if I listened to the Corrs other songs, I might appreciate their musicality and passion more. I’m too old school, I’m afraid. That’s why it’s good to have you, Sanaa, to be more in the present, more “hip.” 🙂
