Lyrics
Faded Dreams
© June 21, 2006 KV Lee & Stan Loh at Dingle, Ireland

Verse 1
Faded dreams going through a phase,
Suffering years of disgrace,
My mind tells me to let things be,
But my heart still fights the stormy seas.

Chorus 1
She left me at the altar,
With a ring in my hand,
Dreams, why did they falter?
Bitter right till the end,

Verse 2
Faded dreams renew my damaged soul,
Tell me why she said “no”,
Aching heart displaced and torn,
Happiness still waits to be born.

Chorus 2
Lose the chains of anger,
Get new dreams from the strand,
Memories be a stranger,
Hide the ring from my hand,

Bridge
Shattered dreams, golden ring,
What should I do with it?
Find another finger that fits,
Wonder what tomorrow will bring?

Verse 3
I will put the ring back in its case,
Sign of sorrow replaced,
I will search so cautiously,
For someone to share her love with me.

Chorus 3
She’ll be there at the altar,
With a ring in her hand,
Dreams renewed never falter,
She will make our life grand,
With a ring in her hand.
With my ring in her hand.

I was wracking
my memory for what the doubled vox sounded like. Then, I thought of Dream by the Everly Brothers. And, someone beat me to the comparison, wouldn't you know? You have a great voice. How you got a rock sound instead of Celtic after being in Ireland, I don't know. If you ever do Celtic, I'm up for background vox. Thanks. :)

Really cool vibe here, love the present day rhythm combined with an old school vocal arrangement well done!

You got it right
"Old school"...you got it! How did you know? We're 2 old farts in retirement who wrote and performed this.

I've tried so many ways to write modern sounding songs...not winning. If you have a tip or two I'd certainly like to know about them. Thanks so much!

haha!
I really like it mate, the music is great and right up to the modern day, the vocals are old school, which is something difficult to change! I think its good though it puts you in your own bracket so why change what works?!

Everly Brothers is what I am reminded of also.
But I really like this song and the whole feel of the melody and beat.
