Description
I seem to have run out of ideas and breath lately, but I came up with this retrospective song last week and been working on it since lyrics, chords etc. I finally managed to get a sound out of the Amplifiers and pedals in GB so was able to use the electric (Les Paul copy) Guitar. I tried to get something else to accompany, but with it being such a loose song with no set rhythm, nothing seemed to fit except the GB electric piano. So maybe my lyrics are wishful thinking LOL. Well here it is; a winsome sort of ballad.
I added the chords with the lyrics if anyone wants to play this, but I played with the capo at the 2nd fret in the C position, So although it ended up in the key of 'D' I've also added the 'C' chord pattern at the bottom.

Lyrics
In A Dream
1.)
.......D/ Dma7/ Bm......Bm7.......................................Gma7...
In a d-r-e-a-m, I was shown where I’d gone wrong,
..................Gm..........................................D........
Where my feelings and emotions should belong,
..........Em.............A7.....................D...... ( Gma7/ A flat ma7)
I was lost, I couldn’t find my way.
2.)
.......D/ Dma7/ Bm......Bm7.......................................Gma7...
In a dream, I saw myself when young and strong,
..................Gm..........................................D........
My future all spread out, so far the end I couldn’t see,
.........Em.............A7.....................................D...... ( A7)
How could I see, the love that lay in wait for me?

Bridge 1)
................G........A7........................D......F7...Bm...... (A7)
Someone came, bringing love that filled my dreams,
..............G.........A7......................D.....(A7)
Looking like an Angel filled with light,
...............G.............Gma7..............
Held my hand and showed the way,
Gma7.......................F.........F7.....
The one who pulled me through.
(3)
In my dream, I saw the one whose love would fill all my life,
Who’d lift me and care in every way,
When I was lost, and feeling low.

Bridge 2.
Now, the dream, the dream still lives within my thoughts,
Tho’ the future that I saw, which spread so very far,
It’s shorter now, while you are closer still,
You’re my Angel filled with light,
The one who pulled me through.

In my dreams, I saw the one whose love would fill my life,
Would lift and care for me in every way,
You’re the one who pulled me through,
You’re my Angel, my Angel filled with light.

Verses C/Cma7/Am, Am7, Fma7,/ Fm, C, Dm, G7, C/ ( Fma7/ Gflat ma 7)

Bridge. F/ G7/ C/ E/ Am/......F, G7, C,.....Fma7, E,...... Fma7, E.

I'd
given up on the electric Sammy, that's why I usually use the acoustic, but I'm very pleased now I think I got it sussed. Thanks for calling in.... yes the chords do take a sharp turn every now and then LOL, cheers M

Whimsical
Nice one, Maurice. A whimsical, drifting song that does evoke a dream-like state in the listener. I like the guitar tone and the natural way the song involves you in the story. Different but high quality offering. Thanks, Peter

Yes Peter
I do wax 'whimsical' every now and then LOL.... really pleased you were able to follow the line of the lyrics easily, because I'd wondered if they weren't twisting and turning a bit too much, thanks for dropping in to listen, regards M

Really pleased
with your words Philip; thanks for the much appreciated compliments especially mentioning the vocal. I did wonder why certain notes I sang sounded flat though and it all boils down to me using for the first time, the 'Automatic Tuning' in GB. I had started the song in GB as 'C', but I put the capo on and took it up to 'D', so when I ticked the little box on the autotune to 'Stick to the Key', it was dragging certain notes downward. I've altered it now, but not in time for here. I won't use the autotune again, cheers M

I like the vibrato effect on the guitar. It suites the dream like quality of the song. The light touch of the keys are a nice touch. Wonderful lyrics and a heartfelt vocal track. Maurice, this is a beautiful song and I enjoyed listening very much.

Thank you Yves
I did consider asking you to do something on this song, because I thought it was a bit bare sounding for such a strong ballad, but as you can hear the timing would be a nightmare for anyone else to join in. Hence I settled for a minimum electric piano sound. Again thank you kindly for the nice words, regards M

Sweet echos of a ballad from the 50s. The liberal use of tremolo on the electric guitar and piano punctuate that 50s vibe. You should play that electric guitar more often!

Melancholic
Something very sad about this song Maurice.

There is world weariness in your voice that is quite affecting.

Beautifully done though.

Classic chord progression, and the melody rides on top like an old standard. I like the sincere vocal and the clean sounding chorus-y guitar.

This is such a nice song, Maurice. I love that heavy vibrato in your voice. I enjoy all your songs, but I think my favorites are the slow ballads - the songs that really give your voice the chance to shine - like this one. Mucho enjoyed - thanks!

I'm quite
an addict of Major seventh chords Jack; they just seem to drop into my songs, but this one has more than most LOL.... it's that dreamy quality they have. Vox praise is very much appreciated, since I wasn't sure i was going to get through this one....Thank you for calling in; glad you liked it, regards M

The inimitable Moviz!
Such a sweet little song, delivered with such sincerity and care. My dad used to use a phrase for singers he really liked: "That guy can really pitch a song." Well, you do more than just pitch it, Maurice. You infuse your vocals with your heart, and it is palpable. Beautiful new number.

Thank you Paul
Praise from you is praise indeed and really pleasing, since we all know that you know your stuff. Regarding singing; I always say that a singer should treat the lyrics like a story and then act them out vocally. I do tend to put my all into the expression, but the way my voice is going, I'll soon have to start talking my songs instead of singing LOL. Thank you again for the very welcome encouragement, regards M

dream
this sounds like the soundtrack to a david lynch movie. it's got an incredibly intimate vibe.....and your close vocal delivery is really stunning maurice....definitely one of your best creations. the guitar sound works at the fundamental level....but it's just a bit too pitchy in places for my ears. i think you made the perfect choice not to flesh this out with other stuff. the electric piano was a perfect under-stated accompaniment.
your voice is exposed throughout.....i love that....the cracks and wobbles....they're perfect....seriously.
truly excellent song maurice. well done.

I'm
back to catch up again Maurice! I can't believe you run out of ideas as you post great songs quite regularly and I can't keep up :-).
Nice to hear you playing guitar, lovely mellow tone and always great to hear you sing, lovely song and a great performance, another gem for my collection.
Thanks and very much enjoyed.

I was
shocked to see four of my songs on fire LOL... I thought there'd been a pyromaniac on the loose. Oh I do run out of ideas Bob, but it's funny how I might just get part of a tune in my head and when i follow it with chords, I then decide what genre. I really don't know what inspired this one, but I'm glad you think it sounds OK. I just wish my voice was as smooth as it once was, so I could really have done the song justice, regards M
