Music lives in our hearts and minds. Broadcast transmissions carry out into space and travel forever reaching other worlds. In 2016 we lost a lot of folks and this was a tune I wrote as a tribute to those whose dreams live on in our hearts, minds, and space. The references in the chorus should be pretty clear but it is Bowie, Prince, Maurice White, and Merle Haggard. Now I will leave it up to you to find the references in the lyrics.
The team of Patty and Tony now brings in our daughter Holly doing lead and harmony vocals with Patty layering some doubling and harmony on the bridge. Hope you enjoy.

Nice tribute to a world of lost talent...and we'll mention Gregg Allman also. A sad year indeed.

Nice work on the vocals!

We'd enjoy seeing the lyric and RT's, etc.

Enjoyed it!

Janice and Bud - Where are you in GA? I grew up there in the Cedartown, Buchanan, Bremen area. Mom and brothers still live there.

OK - Here are the lyrics - not all the people referenced were musicians. In verse 3 John Glenn said that one of the amazing things about being in space was seeing multiple sunrises in a single day - That transformed into sunsets lasting forever. Yeah I was already complete with the tune when Greg passed. I played many Allman Bros. tunes in my many years of playing live.

Verse 1:
There's a place in our hearts
Where memories of a lifetime
Stay alive in a space
Never fading with the hands of time

Verse 2:
There's a place in our minds
Where the sounds of joy and laughter
Take us back to a time
When the music played our favorite songs

Chorus:
Where dreams live on
and heroes live forever
Where purple reigns
and Ziggy plays guitar

Where dreams live on
Beyond the twelfth of never
On silver wings
we can fly

Verse 3:
There's a place in the stars
Where sunsets last forever
and the circle of time
sings a song made just for you

Verse 4:
Take a walk with a friend
travel back from the beginning
by the mystical stream
sweet freedom on a beam of light

Chorus:
Where dreams live on
and heroes live forever
Where purple reigns
and Ziggy plays guitar

Where dreams live on
Beyond the twelfth of never
On silver wings
we can fly

Bridge:
Breaking from their earthly ties - they move on
waves moving out through space
Gently reaching out to other worlds
Where dreams live on

Verse 5:
There's a place in our hearts
Where memories of a lifetime
Stay alive in a space
Never fading with the sands of time

Chorus:
Where dreams live on
and heroes live forever
Where purple reigns
and Ziggy plays guitar

Where dreams live on
Beyond the twelfth of never
On silver wings
we can fly

Chorus:
Where dreams live on
and heroes live forever
Where purple reigns
and Ziggy plays guitar

Where dreams live on
Beyond the twelfth of never
On silver wings
we can fly
