Video Dreams Will Come

[20110727]
This is a song I wrote for someone who had trouble sleeping. In fact, it's for the same person who inspired me to play with my LEGOs, which turned into the video for Keep Up with Me (www.supertran.net). Since presenting the song to the individual, I have made little changes here and there.

As far as I know, the song didn't help the person sleep, but I hope you enjoy it anyways.

A friend jokingly asked about the Coca-Cola can. I just thought the color went well with the red blocks. So I had it zoom by. Actually, another friend jokingly said it surprised him. Well, he said it honestly surprised him, but I still think he's joking.

LYRICS:
Dreams Will Come (Demo)
by Timothy Tran

Lay your head down to rest,
imagine my beating chest,
feel my heart next to yours,
hear it lub and dub and (lub and dub and...)

Close your eyes. Dreams will come
take away all the stress,
all the pain, all the mess
of the day ay ay ay (ay ay ay ay)

Sleep will come on its own.
Take your thoughts let them go
like the shore lets the waves go
in and out and (in and out and...)

Close your eyes. Dreams will come
take away all the stress,
all the pain, all the mess
of the day ay ay ay (ay ay ay ay)

Let exhaustion overwhelm
your lovely mind and may your dreams be the kind,
kind that lets you stay asleep and happy.
Go to sleep and dream.

OLD YOUTUBE VERSION:
I'm not exactly satisfied with this edit. What happened was I had a recording that I was satisfied with. But I changed the lyrics to one of the verses and I thought about different ways to record the new lyrics. In my attempt to salvage material I already had recorded, I believe I made the song sound terrible. I'm not sure... for now I'll just publish the video with the most recent audio I have exported. I'll consider changes depending on comments.

In the meantime, one minor workaround is to listen to the audio through a pair of headphones.
