Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 24/06/2018

img_1345-3Helen’s theme this week is Dream.

Well, I dream a lot, practically every night!

I am fortunate in that I can remember most dreams, and go back the next day to continue them.

I daydream too. More so as I get older! However, that has nothing whatsoever to do with what I chose for my music offering this week.

There are countless “dream” themed songs to choose from. It seems that every writer has a dream, and that is only to be expected.

This week I offer you a song from a young lady from America, called Sarah Grace McLaughlin.   You will not know her by this name. Her parents were from Bishopbriggs, in Scotland, and she chose to adapt that town’s name and use it as her professional name, Bishop Briggs.

Here is her recording of “Dream.” I hope you enjoy it!

 

Dream

Bishop Briggs

Crying eyes, broken bells
Back in course, no one tells
Down we go, wish me well
I don’t know where we fell

Oh, I had a dream that you couldn’t hear me screaming
Trying to tell you everything but it wouldn’t stop you leaving

I wanna wake up where your love is
‘Cause your love is always waking mine
I wanna break down where your heart gets
So torn it’s almost breaking mine
I wanna lay here, lost and bitter
So long, I feel like I could die
I wanna tell you what my truth is
But it’s buried down inside

Shining light, show and tell
Don’t be scared, truth is hell
Down we go, wish me well
No one knows where we fell

Oh, I had a dream that you couldn’t hear me screaming
Trying to tell you everything but it wouldn’t stop you leaving

I wanna wake up where your love is
‘Cause your love is always waking mine
I wanna break down where your heart gets
So torn it’s almost breaking mine
I wanna lay here, lost and bitter
So long, I feel like I could die
I wanna tell you what my truth is
But it’s buried down inside

They say that secrets make you sick and I should know
Just promise me that if I tell you you will go
Oh, oh, oh

I wanna wake up where your love is
‘Cause your love is always waking mine
I wanna break down where your heart gets
So torn it’s almost breaking mine
I wanna lay here, lost and bitter
So long, I feel like I could die
I wanna tell you what my truth is
But it’s buried down inside

It’s buried down inside

Songwriters: Dan Wilson / Ian Brendon Scott / Mark A. Jackson / Sarah Grace Mclaughlin

      1. You’re most welcome. Listen to “Dead Man’s Arms.” It’s my favorite! Also, “Wild Horses,” and “The Way I Do”. You will enjoy her work!

  1. Wonderful! I imagine she wanted to avoid confusion with the other Sarah McLaughlin (who I think is Canadian). I will have to look up more of her music. Thanks Peter!

  2. Bishop Briggs opened for Coldplay when they came to town a few years ago, so I was able to see her live. I fell in love with her. Thanks for the story about her name. I wondered about her name. I loved this song, her voice and they lyrics. Thanks so much for sharing!
