Painted Dreams

Musik och text: Christian Antblad, Ingemar Åberg

I painted dreams of years to come.
I drew the lines of my imaginary sun.
Just like a diary that waited for me
that promised more than I could dare believe.
I painted faces from my dream.
I chose the colours were far away from me.
I prayed for stardust that would show me the way I had
but that one dream to save the day.
And here I stand with no more dues to pay.
I´m on my way, I´m on my way.

When I was down, when life was grey,
when I was on the ground and saw the picture fade.
When I felt lost I learned to trust,
the light that I had in me and I painted dreams.

I painted skies without a cloud
I drew an image that would make a dreamer proud.
I filled that canvas with my heart and my soul.
I kept the fire burning through the cold.
And here I stand with no more dues to pay.
I´m on my way, I´m on my way.

When I was down, when life was grey,
when I was on the ground and saw the picture fade.
When I felt lost, I learned to trust
the light that I had in me and I painted dreams.

I watch that picture with a smile.
I know that it came true if only for a while.
And in that picture I can truly see.
I see who I am and why I painted dreams.
