This Bobby Angel song explores …
One man’s attempt to salvage his dream.
Dreams are what you shoot for in your youth, until suddenly the stark reality of life turnes them into a nightmarish state. Or can the original dream be salvaged? Or even if not, does the dream live on? Bobby Angel take it to the next level into the exploratory journey of what the pursuit of dreams, their eventually shortcomings, and the solace they eventually bring is all about. Dream big, pursue those dreams; But never forget that whatever you dream is no guarantee.
Side note: Bobby Angel has been singing this song in the back of his head for some twenty years. Perhaps in the interim he’s relived the song too many time to tell.
In a word, Bobby Angel rocks.
