Songs are like friends , some are just brief acquaintances while others endure but you only visit them occasionally and then there are those who accompany you through life , for me Dream On is one such song.
I first heard Dream On in the late 80s and to me it's as fresh today as it was then , a masterpiece.

As I travel through life the lyrics have grown deeper meaning and my appreciation for the songsmith who is Steven Tyler deepens.

Every time I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by like dusk to dawn

Isn't that the way?
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody's sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life's in books' written pages
Live and learn from fools and from sages
You know it's true
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

What would life be without music , such beauty in art.

Mrs C's favourite song and she has chosen it to be played at her funeral. Aerosmith are a great band, heavily influenced by The Beatles, particularly Paul McCartney.

Life would have no meaning without music, in my opinion.

Thanks for posting this mate.

I used to feel that way about this song for a brief time back in the 70s but I saw them live not long after it came out and it was the worst show I'd ever seen. This was before they had gotten straight. Now every time I hear that song all I can hear is the butchered version they did at the (no longer in existence) Capital Center.

I agree with the sentiment of this thread though, just too bad this song's not one of those for me any more. I have many of those "old friend" songs, even some by Aerosmith.
