Dream Baby Dream
When I first saw this video it took me back to my visit to Italy and the concert I got to see in Naples. I love the words, the feel, the emotion and as with most of Bruce’s lyrics could completely relate it to my life experiences.
Today I listen with different ears, as I feel the pounding of someone else’s fist against my life and my heart, I hear a gentle voice, feel that soft encouragement to keep fighting, keep dreaming.
Crying has been a daily occurrence since last weeks fatal blow. In these words and music I now hear the spirit of my father telling me to keep moving, not to get bitter. I hear my dad telling me to stay true to myself and take life’s damaging events standing. “Follow your heart and cut out the bastards that get in your way” he’d say.
Leave it to Bruce Springsteen to tell me what my dad would tell me; Stop crying and Keep On Dreaming. Leave your heart open to the good things and the good people that come into your life. Dream Baby Dream.
