Save Some Time To Dream

As happens most Sundays, today Son Donald came to hang out.  For dinner I made a big bowl of Oven Fried Rice and frozen egg rolls, and Donald stir fried green beans.  (Hubby Tony was in charge of setting the table and pouring drinks.)  When it was time to eat we carried all the food to the table, along with a selection of sauce packets we've accumulated from carryout Chinese.

After we ate we cleared the table, then got out the Rummikub game and started playing. Donald brought my laptop in from the family room and we listened to songs on Pandora and YouTube, swapping inspirations back and forth. One of the songs that showed up on his station reminded me of "Save Some Time To Dream" a great song by John Mellencamp from a couple of years ago.  I really like the thought-provoking lyrics:



Save some time to dream
Save some time for yourself
Don't let your time slip away
Or be stolen by somebody else
Save some time for those you love
For they'll remember what you gave
Save some time for the songs you sing
And the music that you've made

Could it be that this is all there is?
Could it be there's nothing more at all?
Save some time to dream
'Cause your dream could save us all

Save some time for sorrow
Cause it will surely come your way
Prepare yourself for failure
It will give you strength some day
Try to keep your mind open
And accept your mistakes
Save some time for living
And always question your faith

Could it be that this is all there is?
Could it be there's nothing more at all?
Save some time to dream
'Cause your dream might save us all

Cast your eyes up to heaven
Oh what does that mean to you
Try not to be too judgmental
So others will not judge you
Save some time to think
Oh before you speak your mind
Many will not understand
And to them you must to be kind

Could it be that this is all there is?
Could it be there's nothing more at all?
Save some time to dream
'Cause your dream might save us all

Oh yeah
Your dream might save us all
