Unita: Listen to Music

Father's Dream

(Unita)
Unita - Vocals, lyrics, music. Herb Ernst - Music, Keyboards. Joseph Akins - Keyboards and ethereal textures

My father was a dreamer and a musician whose legacy to me was not only his love of music, but his angelic singing voice. I consider it a beautiful gift. It broke my heart when he passed over, but I feel his spirit in every song I sing. It was a long time before I was able to write these lyrics… Finally, I took them to my friend Herb Ernst and asked him to help me with the music. It was a wonderful experience, and he has a gentle spirit and enormous talent. In the recording studio, I was very emotional. At the end of the song my emotions took over and you can hear it in my voice, but I wanted to keep it in. I felt is was honest and real. This song took eleven years to come to fruition, and I know my father is smiling that famous smile of his and glad that I finally got on with it.

Father's Dream

One day a dreamer came to share an angel’s kiss
His blood runs through my veins, and even more than this
My heart beats with the love and passion of a man
Who would give the stars above if the world were in his hands
This was my father’s dream, and it is everything

God bless the dreamer who taught me to believe
God bless the dreamer who lives inside of me

He was a music man, who played a different tune
But my leader of the band would leave this life too soon
My voice still sings so strong with the memory of his grace
Each line, each note, each song, believes in a better place
That was my father’s dream, and this is everything

God bless the dreamer who taught me to believe
God bless the dreamer who lives inside of me

My voice still sings so strong with the memory of his grace
Each line, each note, each song, believes in a better place
That was my father’s dream, and this is everything

I’ll live my father’s dream
And this is everything
