Day to Day Dream Lyrics

Lyrics to all eleven songs on “Day to Day Dream”, by Valerie Ghent.


WHEELS ON A TRAIN

music & lyrics by Valerie Ghent

like the wheels on a train you got me goin’ round
like the wheels on a train you got me goin’ round and round…
like the birds in the sky we’re flyin high
like the birds in the sky we’re flyin so high…

so high I don’t know if
I’m ever coming down
and I don’t know why
you took so long to find

but you’re here now (wheels on a train)
and that’s all that really matters (wheels on a train)
yes you’re here now (wheels on a train)
and that’s all that really matters

like the leaves on a tree you’re close to me
like the leaves on a tree you are so close to me…

we’re so close I don’t know if
I’m ever coming down
and I don’t know why
you took so long to find

but we’re here now (wheels on a train)
and that’s all that really matters (wheels on a train)
yes you’re here now (wheels on a train)
and that’s all that really matters

like wheels on a train we’re goin’ round
like birds in the sky flying high
like leaves in a tree you’re laying next to me
like fish in the sea we’re swimming free
like flowers in the ground puttin’ roots down
but most of all you’re here next to me

like a key in the door opens more
like ink in the well I’m feeling swell
like sun on a beach so deep you reach
like a song to sing so true you ring
like a cat’s meow I know now
here I’m gonna be for a while

like the wheels on a train
like the wheels on a train
like the wheels on a train
like the wheels on a train (wheels on a train)

like the wheels (wheels) on a train
got me goin’ round
like the wheels on a train (wheels on a train)
goin’ round and round
wheels
wheels on a train
wheels
wheels on a train

 

BUDDY

music & lyrics by Valerie Ghent

just one look in his eyes you’ll know he’s my Buddy
the way that sweet little smile of his touches my face
he’s that promised delight I call Buddy
’cause he gathers me up in his arms and tucks me away

when you hear what he says, you’ll know he’s my Buddy
when he speaks to a room they all listen in
but that’s not what I’m talking about no not my Buddy
it’s what he says when we’re alone at night in the morning in bed

couldn’t be one but Buddy
couldn’t love one but Buddy, my Buddy
couldn’t need one but Buddy
morning noon and night
he’s my Buddy

when I’m losing my head who holds me but Buddy
when he puts his mind to something it’s always done right
he’s the kind of guy everybody wants to like Buddy
he’s good, kind, oh but he’s fine you know – he’s one of a kind

couldn’t love one but Buddy my Buddy
let me tell you why –

he moves like the wind
oh he makes me laugh
holds me when I cry
tells me when I’m wrong
he knows when I need to be alone
oh how I love dancing with Buddy
he knows what I need
and gives it to me
I know what he needs
every day – every day
not afraid to say – not afraid to say – not afraid to say
we’re in love

Buddy
couldn’t love one but Buddy, my buddy
couldn’t need one but Buddy
ooh ooh yeah
morning noon and night
I’m talking
morning – noon – night
he’s my Buddy

 

PHASED

music & lyrics by Valerie Ghent

I turn around
look each way
there is no exit
you are gone
I am here
I run the gauntlet
of missing you

the other day
I played a tape
and I heard your voice
calling me
in the way
that only you could
when we were together

phased
unintentionally dazed
there is no one who can replace
your love

I always knew
without you
I wouldn’t fathom
how many ways
you knew my soul
and how you wrapped up
all my secrets
all my dreams

in every word
in every glance
you opened my heart
set the path
of innocence
I’m falling apart
without you

through storms and lighting
winter to spring
You were here by my side
through all of the rain
again and again
you showed me how to love

now I’m
phased
phased
phased
unintentionally dazed
there is no one who can replace
your love

phased
unintentionally dazed
there is no one who can replace
your love

 

SEE IT ALL

music & lyrics by Valerie Ghent

I want to see it all
hear all the parts
know all the sides
go down to the well
dredge up the water
and reach for the sky

another morning cup of tea
think I know what’s bothering me
that drop of water on your back
makes me realize what we lack
I could dry you with a towel
I could watch you with a smile
but I want something new
the way we used to be just won’t do

I know that deep down
talking ‘bout these things will drive us both wild

I want to see it all
hear all the parts
know all the sides
go down to the well
dredge up the water
and reach for the sky

in the afternoon sunlight
freshly painted walls are so bright
you might be opening the mail
I could be looking for a nail to hang a photo
suddenly I look at you
and I find you’re staring too
no one needs to say a word
we both know what would be preferred ‘cuz

I know that deep down
talking ‘bout these things will drive us both wild

I want to see it all
hear all the parts
know all the sides
go down to the well
dredge up the water
and reach for the sky

I want to see it all – show me
know all the sides
go down to the well and dredge up the water come on now
go down to the well and dredge up the water now now
go down to the well and dredge up the water come with me
go down to the well and reach reach reach for the sky
I want to see it all
I want to see it all
I want to see it all

 

DAY TO DAY DREAM

music & lyrics by Valerie Ghent

what’s your day to day dream
who’s your day to day love
where’s your day to day life gone
and how’s your day to day faith
what’s your day to day truth

who’s your day to day lust & did you ever tell them
has your day to day life gone
disappeared in day to day dust

so it ain’t easy enough
I never said it’d be easy

I’m holding on
you’ll see me holding on
yes I am holding on
to my day to day dream
day to day dream

what’s your day to day fun
who’s your day to day friend
is your day to day dream hard to see
well don’t give up
‘cuz nothing good ever came easy

so it ain’t easy enough
I never said it’d be easy

chorus

day to day dream

day to day dream

don’t give up
on that day to day dream
don’t give up now
you got to drink water from the pure stream
when you pick your direction and
point yourself at something
you’ll bring it in focus and
build on your hopes and your dreams

I know it’s hard
when you’re living in hell
I know it’s hard baby
you got to drink water from the pure well
when you pick your direction
and point yourself at something
you’ll bring it in focus
build on your hopes and your dreams

your day to day dream
what I’m talking ‘bout
day to day – day to day dream’s what I’m saying now
day to day – day to day dream
day to day – day to day dream’s what’s I’m talking ‘bout
day to day – don’t you know it’s that day to day to day….
day to day
dream

 

RUN RUN RUN

music & lyrics by Valerie Ghent

every day I realize
I got to have you by my side
with you I want to live my life
no one suits me like you do
I’ll never find another you
when every single day we woo

when something sad happens
or something glad happens
there’s only one thing to do

I’m gonna run run run run run run run run run run run run run to you
I’m gonna run run run run run run run run run run run run run to you

every night I sing your praises
just one look and you amaze
I’ve fallen so in love it’s crazy
when we’re together swallows sing
I am your queen and you’re my king
I never knew the laughter love could bring

when something sad happens
or something glad happens
there’s only one thing to do

I’m gonna run run run run run run run run run run run run run to you
Cause I need you, cause I need to

and if I dreamed this song
I hope I’ll dream it all night long
just to have you near
whispering in my ear

I’m gonna run run run run run run run run run run run run run to you
cause I need you, cause I need to

my heart and soul are yours forever
take my hand in any weather
I just want to see you smile
every day, every mile

we celebrate
celebrate our love together
celebrate
I’m gonna run run run run run run run run run run run run run and
celebrate
celebrate our love together
celebrate

chorus

hunt through the night through the heat through the forest deep

from the day I was born from that early dawn
did I know in my soul you would be the one

love enough for a lifetime
love enough for a lifetime

he’s my man

he’s my man
I’m gonna love him
best I can
he’s my man
he’s my man
he’s my man

 

YOU BROUGHT ME HOME

music & lyrics by Valerie Ghent

lonely traveler
heavy load
sweet summer blues in the air
I’m searchin for heaven
on this road
with the sweet sound of you
in my head

hello my friend
it’s taken a long time
to bring us together
so many years
we’ve spent
apart

and now I find
I just can’t stop cryin’
there’s been too much heartache
so many tears
have dropped

lonely traveler
heavy load
sweet summer blues in the air
I’m searchin for heaven
on this road
with the sweet sound of you
in my head

and here and now
I feel you beside me
can’t quite explain it
can’t possibly be
yet nothing feels
so real

I know I know you held that gate
to keep me here waiting
so I would find you
now I know
in this moment

it’s lain so heavy on me
all of my life
standing alone
wondering where
do I belong
now
I’ve
found
you

you brought me home
finally home

I was a lonely traveler
with the sweet summer blues
I was searchin for heaven
on this road
with the sweet sound of you
in my head
you brought me home
all my life
I’ve been alone
but you found me here
and you brought me home

all my life
I’ve been alone
but you found me here baby
and you brought me home
you brought me home

lonely traveler
heavy load
sweet summer blues in the air
searchin for heaven
on this road
with the sweet sound of you

you brought me home

you brought me – you brought me
home

 

SPREAD A LITTLE LOVE

music & lyrics by Valerie Ghent

put your hands together and spread a little love
spread a little love
share a little laughter – a smile can be enough
spread a little love
spread a little love

today in every way
we can all take the chance
to bring joy to the land
celebrate

chorus

this joy can reach the heart
of anyone who’s in pain
there’s no need to explain
just share a smile

chorus

spread a little, spread a little
spread a little love
spread a little, spread a little
spread a little love – wherever you go
spread a little, spread a little
spread a little love
spread a little love
spread a little love

 

SHOW MY LOVE

music & lyrics by Valerie Ghent

there’s no more time for hiding
no more time for pain
no more time for lying
no more time for blame
no more time for grudges no

I’m gonna show my love
mm hmmm
show my love
mm hmmm

there’s no more time for fighting
no more time for war
no more time for battlefields
‘cause we’re closing every door
no more time for dying

I’m gonna show my love
mm hmmm

show my love
show my love – yes I will
show my love

I’m gonna show my love
mm hmmm
Show my love
mm hmmm

and if there’s no more time for teaching
no more time to give
no more time for children
then there’s no more time to live
no more time god can find

I’m gonna show my love
mm hmmm
show my love
mm hmmm
show my love
mm hmmm
show it every day
show my love
mm hmmm
show it in every way
show my love
