From the Aerosmith hit Dream On
Regarding the meaning of this song, Steven Tyler explained: “It’s about the hunger to be somebody: Dream until your dreams come true…” Dream On came of me playing the piano when I was about 17 or 18, and I didn’t know anything about writing a song. It was just this little sonnet that I started playing one day. I never thought that it would end up being a real song.” From Song Facts.
Dreams come to me awake or asleep. For a time it caused surprise when the good daydreams really happened, much like Steven. I didn’t think I could accomplish what I dreamed about and prayed for. Courage came gradually. I learned to trust that I had the talents to accomplish what I set out to do. Experience is important, as is knowledge. I’m a life long learner. I urge you to pursue your dreams with confidence.
