Dreaming of Dreams
Away I went
From the place I knew
And all the people I loved
To start a new life
And to make something of myself.
There is nothing here,
That will give me fame,
No fortune here
Because no one wants to stay.
It's finally time for me to go
And start a new life
I am eighteen now
And it's finally time to go away.
I want to start my own life
To make my own name.
I want to make my mark on the world
So everyone would know who I am.
I don't want to be another face in a crowd,
I want to be someone you would know.
For once in my life,
I am going to do something for me.
I want to live my life,
Just you wait and see.
I am finally going to have my chance
The one that my parents never gave
I am going to make something of myself
And it's finally going to be for me.
I am going to follow my dream
The one that no one said I could do.
I want to be the person I always dreamt I could be
And for once that person is going to be me.
This is my chance
To finally be a star
To go off to Hollywood
And make my wildest dreams come true.
A few years later,
My dreams have come true.
I am the hottest star in Hollywood
And I have done what I set out to do.
People know my name
And they care when they see me.
I feel so loved
Even if they don't even know me.
The little farm girl in Iowa
Finally got her wish
She is the biggest star in Hollywood
And her wildest dreams have come true.
Still, there is something aching inside of me
That is making me depressed.
I miss where I came from
And the family that I left.
I miss the big open skies,
The corn fields every half-mile,
The small towns,
And the extremely friendly people.
I cry for a minute,
And then I have to shake it off
There are far more important things to do
And more important people to be
Than the little farm girl I used to be.
I woke up suddenly
After everything that went through my head.
I don't want fame in fortune
If I can't have what I love.
My family and my home mean more to me
Than some stupid movie deals.
Who cares if everyone in the world knew who I was
Because I am famous in my own small town.
Not everyone needs to know my name,
Just the select few who know me well
Because family is more important,
Than anything a person dreams of.
