Teenage Dream



 Genre: Folk-Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

In fact I wrote this song when I was 19. That's a long long time ago.
I revived it solely for my teenage son. Hope you also like it.

Please note the 12-strings guitars & the slide guitar were generated using the Band-In-a-Box RealTracks software which are real instrument sounds (not midi).

Music / Lyrics / Vocals / Keyboards / BIAB programming - Mike Lynn

Disappear in the wink of an eye
My teenage dream, to far away it flies
Things I've done in the past, turned out to be a mess
Keep on asking, have I really tried my best ?

Troublesome rain continue to fall
Sloppy roads, when will I walk them all ?
At the point of no return, a flame that ought to burn
Keep on asking, dandy, what have you learned ?

Teenage dream, somehow is getting dim
Those songs I sing for early spring may worth remembering
I have to pick my way, hope I'll find my world one day
My teenage dream, oh my teenage dream, goodbye

Find myself doing nothing these days
Trying to keep reality at bay
I can't just sit there & dream my life away
Cause time, once lost, can't be regained

Repeat chorus

Not Dim
Affirmative, upbeat sound somehow subvert the lyrics in a good way, as if the regret is far outweighed by the possibilities of the future.

If so, glad to hear it!

Nicely put together.

I am simply a music lover, all kinds of music ranging from classical to hard rock. Unfortunately I do not play any instruments nor can I read notes. However, that has not stopped me from composing songs of my own. I normally create my melodies ... [see more]
