Tracy Byrd - Somebody's Dream Lyrics




There's a burned out farmhouse down the road
Barns fallin' in and the field's overgrown
"Keep Outside" on the broken fence
Passers-by say, "What a mess"
It don't cross their mind that not long ago

That was somebody's dream, somebody's hope
Somebody's world gone up in smoke
Ain't life a twistin', turnin', changin' machine
They had big plans, they had no doubts
But then the bottom fell out
It fell apart at the seams
But you wouldn't know that used to be somebody's dream.

He's seventeen, his thumb's in the air
Runnin' away to God-knows-where
No one wants to pick him up
All they see's a no good punk.
With torn up clothes, the cigarette and the hair

Oh but that's somebody's dream, somebody's hope
Somebody's world gone up in smoke
Ain't life a twistin', turnin', changin' machine
His folks, had plans, they had no doubts
They had his future figured out
Guess he just figured differently
And maybe you got room in your back seat
for somebody's dream.

A girl walks into a pawn shop to sell a weddin' ring
Says, "Since he left me, man, I just don't need a thing"
She's thinkin' about what happened, thinkin' what went wrong
Man across the counters thinkin' what price tag he'll put on.

That was somebody's dream, somebody's hope
Somebody's world gone up in smoke
Ain't life a twistin', turnin', changin' machine
She had big plans, she had no doubts
She had it all figured out
Guess he figured differently
Ah, but still she knows someday she'll be somebody's dream.

Somebody's dream, somebody's dream
Somebody's dream (somebody's dream.)...
