AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

John Mellencamp, "Save Some Time To Dream"

The Stoics would like this ...


Save some time to dream
Save some time for yourself
Don't let your time slip away
Or be stolen by somebody else

Save some time for those you love
For they'll remember what you gave
Save some time for the songs you sing
And the music that you make

Could it be this is all there is?
Could it be there's nothing more at all?
Save some time to dream
'Cause your dream might save us all

Save some time for sorrow
'Cause it's surely gonna come your way
And prepare yourself for failure
It'll give you strength someday

Try to keep your mind open
And accept your mistakes
Save some time for living
And always question your faith

Could it be this is all there is?
Could it be there's nothing more at all?
Save some time to dream
'Cause your dream might save us all

So cast your eyes up to heaven
And what does that mean to you?
Try not to be judgmental
So others will not judge you

Save some time to think
Oh, before you speak your mind
Many of your friends they will not understand
And to them you must be kind

Could it be this is all there is?
Could it be there's nothing more at all?
Save some time to dream
'Cause your dream might save us all
