Lyrics

Dreams Don't always happen
© Mae (Betty) Overstreet

I was born in the hills of Oklahoma,
skippin'rocks, and catchin fireflies in a jar
running thru the hills and meadows
dreamed of singing and travelin afar

I met a boy in the hills of Oklahoma,
he played a guitar and dreamed of being a star
So we headed out toward Nashville
but his old truck didn't get us very far

hitchhikin’ back home ,tears on my cheeks
I knew the time just wasn't right
So I spent a few years
skippin rocks across the creek
catching fireflies in the fading light.
Chorus
Dreams don't always happen when you’re dreamin
sometimes Gods plan is not the same
someone in California was waiting
But the time just wasn't right to spread my wings

No the time wasn’t right to spread my wings

He grew up out west near the ocean,
looking up at that Hollywood sign
he spent his time playing basketball
the Beach Boys music was his kind

He went to church every Sunday with his family
praising God for his blessings from above
And he knew someday God would show him
The pathway to find his true love


He walked into my church one Sunday morning
I was singing a song that he knew
When his eyes rose to see me, God whispered
here is the woman I have promised for you.


Now we travel together praising our Father
From the valleys to the mountains high above
We’re singing together where He leads us
sharing the promise of His wondrous love

Chorus
Dreams don't always happen when you’re dreamin
sometimes Gods plan is not the same
Someone in California was waiting
now we're walking in God's light as we sing
TAG
Yes we’re walking in God’s light as we sing.
Yes we’re walking in God’s light as we sing.
