Dreaming The Universe Into Existence

Tuck's inimitable guitar-playing style, Patti's rich like Bailey's voice, and their unbelievable lyrical content, makes this among the albums I have 1) never lost or misplaced in 18 years 2) one of my all time favourite collections.

tucknpattidreamThis album, “Dream” by Tuck and Patti, I found on sale at No. 1 Record Shop, Independence Square in Barbados, for some stupid money–like less than $10DBS. I was 17 years old, and a rabid consumer of new-to-me music. I was still finding my tastes where music was concerned, and although much had already been set in stone, I was still wide open to everything I heard.

I plunked down the stupid money, took it home, and fell in love with it. It is one of those albums I consider seminal in my own personal development, and this album never, ever, ever fails to rejuvenate my spirit.

Dream

I’ve been thinking (yes I have)

Some call it wishful thinking (I don’t)

‘Bout the way this life could be

So much sadness (seems like)

Not enough gladness (seems to me)

Lack of vision is a dangerous thing

If you can see it

Then you start to feel it

The next thing you know, you believe

And that’s when dreams begin to come true

So with all your heart and your soul

Start right now–really take control

Turn our dreams into reality

And until you do, I’ll be dreamin’ for me and you

We’ll see together what a dream can do

We’ll discover how to make dreams real

If seeing is believing, then let the dreaming begin

Let the dreaming begin

If you can see it

Then you start to feel it

And the next thing you know, you believe

And that’s when dreams begin to come true

Oh they’ll begin to come true

So with all your heart and your soul

Start right now–really take control

Turn these dreams into reality

I know that we can change this world

But first you’re gonna have to believe

Oh believe say yes

We can change this world

But first you’re going to have to

Dream

Everybody dream

Turn our dreams into reality oh say

Dream

Everybody dream

Turn our dreams into reality, say oh won’t you

Dream of peace and

Dream of justice

Dream of healing

Dream of loving

Dream

Everybody dream

Turn our dreams into reality

Dream of caring

End of hunger

Dream of sharing

With one another

Dream

Everybody dream

Turn our dreams into reality

Dream of spirit

Dream of glory

Dream of the ancient

Old old story

Dream

Everybody dream

Turn our dreams into reality, I want you to

Dream of peace and

Dream of justice

Dream of healing

Dream of loving

Dream of spirit

Dream of glory

Dream of the ancient

Old old story

Dream end of hatred

Dream oh the story

Dream of love and

Dream of glory

Dream yes oh

Everybody dream

Turn our dreams into reality oh say

I’m Dreamin’ of peace

I’m Dreamin’ of healing

Dream of love and

Dream of caring

Dreaming say

I’m dreaming now

Dreaming of a love say

I’m dreaming

I know that we can dream a world of love
