“REUNION (LIVIN’ YOUR DREAM)” © Elana James, Mandiola Music (BMI), 2009
I came to the party a little late, I’d been drinkin’ and I didn’t have a date. Walked inside, everybody’s there, smilin’ faces everywhere.
It’s great to hear what you’ve done with your life, everybody’s children, everybody’s wives. We all danced, we were singin’ to the beat, but when the music stopped they all took a seat.
When a handsome man came over to me, said he’s so proud I’m livin’ my dream. He said, “What’s it like, the travelin’ life? I don’t believe you’ve met my wife…?”
And they said, “We’re so proud, we’re so pleased. We’re so glad that you’re livin’ your dream, livin’ your dream.”
Harvey Wade and a woman in pearls passed around pictures of their pretty little girls. “Didn’t you hear? Didn’t you know? The music stopped a long time ago.”
Everybody sat down, they all took a seat. Now the only one standing was me. The music stopped for you, I see, but that song still plays for me.
My first boyfriend and his beautiful wife, I’m playin’ their town next Saturday night. Did I wait too long, travelin’ along? Did the music stop? I still hear the song, I still hear the song.
And they said, “We’re so proud, we’re so pleased. We’re so glad that you’re livin’ your dream. We’re so proud. We’re so pleased, we’re so glad that you’re livin’ your dream, livin’ your dream.”
