about

My life didn't turn out the way I thought I wanted it to. And that's a good thing.

lyrics

I’m Still A Dreaming Man

My dreams did not come true
Bet I can say the same for you
That’s a secret they don’t tell ya as a kid:
Your biggest dreams will die
Or if they don’t, you’ll wish they did

But I’m still a dreaming man
Though my dreams are not the same
As way back when
I know what I am
I’m still a dreaming man

I wished upon a fallen star
Tonight I’m in this Austin bar
I feel like I’m an old beat up guitar
But when I’m up here playing
My dreams don’t seem that far

So I’m still a dreaming man
Though my dreams are not the same
As way back when
I know what I am
I’m still a dreaming man

Letting go of a dream
Is no disgrace
As long as a new one
Takes its place

So I’m still a dreaming man
Though my dreams are not the same
As way back when
I know what I am
I’m still a dreaming man
Yeah, I know what I am
I’m still a dreaming man
