AMANDA’S DREAMS
© 2003, words by Timothy D Brown (BMI)

V1>
There’s a diner on the corner of Roosevelt and Main
At the counter stands a waitress watching the pouring rain
She watches the neon colors streaming down the Window Pane
Then gives a soft and gentle sigh: Amanda is her name

Chorus>
Amanda’s dreams are bigger than the life Amanda leads
The world is blind to all the things she could someday be
Amanda leads a secret life at least that’s how it seems
I wish that I could look inside and see Amanda’s dreams

V2>
It’s three o’clock in the morning but it doesn’t seem that late
There’s American Pie on the jukebox and peach pie on my plate
I’ve got a cup of coffee some sugar and some cream
The only thing I really want is to be in Amanda’s dreams

<Repeat Chorus>

Bridge>
I wonder if she ever dreams of sailing on the sea
Does she dream of a happy home and a loving family
Does she dream of rainbows in a blue sky up above
I wonder if she dreams of finding love….

V3>
She’s in her early twenty’s ‘though it’s kind of hard to tell
Behind the smile and sparkling eyes she’s seen her share of Hell
If I could take her away from here things would never be the same
She doesn’t know that I exist doesn’t even know my name

<Key change, Repeat Chorus>

I wish that I could look inside and see Amanda’s dreams
