Learn To Dream Again

|

I met Timjon, a Vietnam vet, in the late 1970’s. After getting to know him and listening to his stories, I was so moved to write this song. As a Prisoner of War, Timjon had endured torture during his captivity. As a result, he had very little feeling in his hands. After coming home, he received no hero’s welcome, which was common for most vets coming back from the war. One day, as we walked on the beach, he suddenly fell to his knees, and he scooped up the sand in his hands, tears filling his eyes. He was learning to feel again, both with his hands and with his heart. This song is dedicated to Timjon, a hero, a patriot, a human being, getting his life back. Thank you Timjon for your service! God speed.

Learn To Dream Again (For Timjon)

Words by Michael Beachwood

 

 

V1   Standing tall on the shore, the ocean filling your eyes, watching those hurtful years pass by.  The sand beneath your feet helps you feel so free.  The waves have welcomed you, awakening your dreams.

 

CH   Today you can start to feel, begin to love, begin to heal.  Awaken all that you have deep inside and Learn To Dream Again.

 

V2   Reaching out of your heart, reaching into your mind.  So many tides have come and gone.  Release the pain inside that has tied you down.  Let your feelings flow, Learn To Dream Again.

 

CH   Today you can start to feel, begin to love, begin to heal.  Awaken all that you have deep inside and Learn To Dream Again.

 

V2   (Instrumental)  Release the pain inside that has tied you down.  Let your feelings flow, Learn To Dream Again.

 

CH   Today you can start to feel, begin to love, begin to heal.  Awaken all that you have deep inside and Learn To Dream Again.

 

END   (Learn To Dream Again).  Learn To Dream Again. (Learn To Dream Again).  Learn To Dream Again. (Learn To Dream Again).
