I’m Sure You’d Say

Did you ever have special friends that you daydreamed aloud with a kid?  What were you going to be when you grew up?  I mean besides older…

Surfer's Bay - Unicorn Meets Pac Man

I'm Sure You'd Say
by Michael Romani

Childhood's dreams into imaginary
We set it out that we'll be legendary
Fighting hard against the grain
Certain that being ordinary would hurt our brains

You were going to be a famous actress
You declared as we laid back against the mattress
We shared our popcorn in late night talks
Spent holding each other's hand as we walked

I was going to be a singer to write music for the night
We laughed as we danced until morning's light
Now, I only play my songs to echoed walls
That's the reverberation of childhood's fall

The last time I saw you made me smile
For goodness sakes, that's been a long while
And look at you now up on the screen
And me, I'm just an ordinary human being

I wanted to call you just the other day
But, I didn't want to remind you of yesterday
All those dreams I had I have locked away
You'd tell me to dream again, I'm sure you'd say
