LYRICS - "Dreams"

Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom.
Well, who am I to keep you down?
It's only right that you should play the way you feel it.
But listen carefully to the sound of your loneliness.
Like a heartbeat...drives you mad.
In the stillness of remembering what you had - and what you lost - and what you had - and what you lost.

Thunder only happens when it's raining.
Players only love you when they're playing.
Say, Women, they will come and they will go.
When the rain washes you clean,
you'll know, you'll know.


Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions.
I keep my visions to myself It's only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and...
Have you any dreams you'd like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness.
Like a heartbeat - drives you mad.
In the stillness of remembering what you had - and what you lost - and what you had - and what you lost.

Thunder only happens when it's raining.
Players only love you when they're playing.
Women they will come and they will go.
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know.



My goal is to always create a super easy piano arrangement that sounds good and is fun to play.

I learned "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac from a lead sheet, which is sheet music that just shows the right-hand melody and chord symbols. (see example below)

I improvised the left hand part by using blocked and broken chords, and I played a simple, single-note melody line with my right hand.

Before I knew any chords, it would take me weeks to learn a new song. After I started learning chords, I could learn a new song in less than an hour. I was able to do this because I no longer had to read the music notes on the bass clef.

  • Knowing chords allows me to create my own piano arrangements. Now all I read is the right hand melody on the treble clef.
