This was written as a dance track. Not sure if Ashton-u-Lyne is quite ready for it........but I wish it was. The chorus is intended to sound like a broadcast from an outdoor venue, and an echo is heard after "declare" and "where".
I feel a bit silly posting this after reading other (superior) efforts, but I hope you'll provide some constructive comments as in the other forum.
I realise it's not an original idea, but I'm sure Chris won't mind.
Last night I had the dream of dreams
and woke up feelin fine.
My light-speed breakin friend came down to me –
can’t get it off my mind.
He took me to his saucer
and he gave me China tea.
he said he was no alien
and sang this song to me.
I am a member of the human race
and I declare my love for every man and woman –
no matter what the colour of their face,
no matter where their heart and soul began.
He opened his transmitting beam
and set controls to stun,
called all the radio stations,
sent waves across the nations.
After eighty generations
in the wilderness of space
I can see the time is right – right now
to cure this crazy place.
If only you can sing this song
meaning every word you say
you can truly say that you are free –
celebrate a better day.”
