If Aviandria Were a Musical–Dreams

Last month I started sharing some song lyrics I wrote a few years ago for whenever Aviandria becomes so big they decide to make a Broadway musical of it. I know that’s about as likely as getting a letter from Hogwarts, but hey, a girl can dream, can’t she? Last week I shared “Alder’s Lament.” If you want to read it, you can find it here. The song this week introduces the main character, Ashlynn, and her best friend Ebony. And, though I mentioned this last week, there are a couple things to keep in mind. Unfortunately, I am not quite awesome enough to write out all the music for the tune that goes with these songs (Yes, they do have a tune. I didn’t just write words. I can hear it all in my head nearly perfectly.) and I can’t perform these by myself. Try as I might, I just can’t split myself into two people and sing two different parts. Therefore, you will just have to read the words. Sigh. Also, though there aren’t any huge spoilers in these songs, so it is safe to read them whether you have read the book or not, they might make more sense if you know the story. If you haven’t read it and would like to, it can be purchased here. So, without further ado, I give you, “Dreams”!

 

Dreams

 

Ashlynn

Dreams are  peculiar

They come in the night

then fade with the light,

but the essence remains.

They only reflect your own thoughts

When your mind is on its time off

That’s what the textbooks all say

so don’t let your worry stay.

 

Dreams,

These are just only dreams

So don’t worry about them.

We’ll talk later about them.

These strange dreams.

 

 

 

Ebony

I know dreams are strange

And they often mean nothing

but sometimes there’s something

that you just can’t ignore.

This is more than a thought

that my mind just made up

I can’t help but feel

that this dream is so real.

 

Dreams,

These are more than just dreams

and I worry about them.

And Just can’t forget them.

These strange dreams.

 

Ebony

My dreams are so vivid

 

Ashlynn

And mine are bizarre

the few times I even recall what they are.

 

Ebony

Sometimes I forget dreams;

ignore them at will

But this time I just cannot shake what I feel.

 

Ashlynn

Well, we’ll think of something;

We’ll figure this out.

We’ll discover what these dreams are really about.

 

Ebony and Ashlynn together

This intangible riddle

won’t give us release.

And only by solving it will we find peace.

 

(Parts sang at the same time by Ebony and Ashlynn)

Ebony

Dreams,

These are more than just dreams

and I worry about them.

And Just can’t forget them.

These strange dreams.

 

Ashlynn

Dreams,

These are just only dreams

So don’t worry about them.

We’ll talk later about them.

These strange dreams.
