Bruce Cockburn - A Dream Like Mine Lyrics




When you've got a dream like mine
Nobody can take you down
When you've got a dream like mine
Nobody can push you around

Today I dream of how it used to be
Things were different before
The picture shifts to how it's going to be
Balance restored
When you know even for a moment
That it's your time
Then you can walk with the power
Of a thousand generations

When you've got a dream like mine
Nobody can take you down
When you've got a dream like mine
Nobody can push you around

Beautiful rocks, beautiful grass
Beautiful soil where they both combine
Beautiful river, covering sky
Never thought of possession, but all this was mine

When you know even for a moment
That it's your time
Then you can walk with the power
Of a thousand generations

When you've got a dream like mine
Nobody can take you down
When you've got a dream like mine
Nobody can push you around

Bruce Cockburn A Dream Like Mine Comments
  1. George Sawtooth

    BC is best when he stays away from politics. This song is sublime.

    One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.

  2. Tim Jones

    Bruce, Van Morrison, Warren Zevon and Jimmy Buffett define my childhood oh
    The nostalgia

  3. guloguloguy

    I think that I saw him, in 1984, in Dekalb, IL, playing songs from his Stealing Fire" Album!!! => An AWESOME Show, at the "Egyptian Theater"!!!

    My husband and I had a meet and greet with him after a show. We took a photo. He is a real gentleman and of course a very talented musician.

  12. Amy Johansen

    Never get bored of this. :) Grew up listening to Cockburn (and I'm not Canadian either), and I feel blessed for it. :D

  13. ebonywahine

    Me too heard him doing a solo gig @ a winery one hot night in Saratoga CA. He produced some of the heat himself with his guitar licks and wonderful vocals...so yeah I've heard him many times when I lived in SF Bay Area.

  14. Pamela Drake

    Not only that, a world-class guitarist. I've seen him in front of 5000 people with an acoustic guitar and no band, holding the audience transfixed with just his playing. That's something you don't know from this video, because this is a full band arrangement. He can burn up the frets and amaze people.

    macfleetwood1

    And he still does. Saw him a few months ago and he is still a rare talent on guitar.

    I have also seen Bruce about 5 times live! Actually, I first heard this song for the first time back in 1995. I have a fan ever since.

  16. adventuresinbelieving

  17. noblsht

  18. moonlitme

  19. ebonywahine

    I've had the opportunity to hear him live and he's the real deal. Fantastic singer/songwriter!

  20. Louis Belley

    that canadian guy is greatly underestimated and talent that could only been given by God

  21. Murray-Baugh Songs

    a great song - the guy's got plenty more
