Songs of Sobriety: Chair Dreams

by C. Steven Blue

Chair Dreams

Picture—

a hopeless drug addict,

isolated in his loneliness,

sitting in a chair, starin’ out his window

dreaming about a world

he cannot participate in,

wishing he could find a way out,

crying in his lonely desperation…

this is called… “Chair Dreams.”

Sitting in my chair

Starin’ out my window

Dreaming about all the things

I’m gonna do… and see… and be

You’re gonna love me

And it’s going to be the best love ever

If I can just get out of this chair

And get it together

Chair dreams

Take me here and there

Chair dreams

Take me everywhere

Chair dreams

Seem so crystal clear

    For a moment

But then they’re gone… again

And it’s just another chair dream

I know I was gonna have

A hit song

And a house in the country

Sit in a rocker on my front porch

With endless inspiration

I know I was gonna paint

My masterpiece

And write a prize-winning novel

And I remember it

Sometimes when I’m high enough

But I just can’t seem

To get out of this chair

Can’t seem to get motivated

To go anywhere

And my dream slips away

To the back of my mind

‘Till another day

When the right combination finds

My chair dreams

Chair dreams

Take me here and there

Chair dreams

Take me everywhere

Chair dreams

Seem so crystal clear

    For a moment

But then they’re gone… again

It’s just another chair dream

Sittin’ in my chair

Starin’ out the window

Dreamin’ ‘bout all the things…

I’m gonna be

You’re gonna love me

And it’s going to be the best love ever

If I can just get out of this chair

And get it together

Yes, chair dreams

Take me here and there

My chair dreams

They take me everywhere

My chair dreams

Seem so crystal clear

    For a moment

But then they’re gone… again

It’s just another chair dream

Chair dreams

Take me here and there

Chair dreams

Take me everywhere

Chair dreams

—Take me outta here

Chair dreams

Seem so crystal clear

    For a moment

But then I’m gone again

And it’s just another chair dream
