THOSE GOOD OLD DREAMS (Richard Carpenter (m) / John Bettis (l) ) As released by the Carpenters < Made In America > 1981 As a child I was known for make-believin' All alone I created fantasies As I grew people called it self-deceivin' But my heart helped me hold the memories. As I walk through the world I find around me Somethin' new, yet familiar's in the air I feel it everywhere Like a child's eyes. On a Christmas night I'm lookin' at you now Findin' answers to my prayers. It's a new day for those good old dreams One by one it seems they're comin' true Here's the mornin' that my heart had seen Here's the mornin' that just had to come through. Same old stage but what a change of scene No more dark horizons, only blue It's a new day for those good old dreams All my life I dreamed of lovin' you. (bridge) You're a spark of a long forgotten fire You're a touch of a slowly growin' wind You're a taste of the ever-changin' seasons Tellin' me there are some things that don't end. We have left all the darkness far behind us All those hopes that we held along the way Have made it to this day Like an old love song Gone for much too long You hear it once again And it carries you away. It's a new day for those good old dreams One by one it seems they're comin' true Here's the mornin’ that my heart had seen Here's the mornin’ that just had to come through. Same old stage but what a change of scene No more dark horizons, only blue It's a new day for those good old dreams All my life I dreamed of you. It's a new day for those good old dreams And it’s all because of you. NOTES: This song was released in both album form and as a 45 rpm single (it’s B side was < When It’s Gone (It’s Just Gone) > see elsewhere in this ILP database). The Carpenters were a talented brother/sister singer/songwriting duo hailing from Los Angeles CA USA. As of 2013, they had sold more than 100 million units (source BBC). Their distinctive soft rock sound provided contrast to the loud and raucous sounds of the day. As well as singing, Karen was accomplished at drums and brother Richard at piano. Sadly, the duo's career ended prematurely with the death of Karen Carpenter in 1983. She was 32 years old. < Made In America > was the final album released before Karen’s passing. The Grammy Hall Of Fame recognized the Carpenters as providing music of 'lasting qualitative or history significance' (older than 25 years) by honouring them with their prestigious award. Additional Note: This song was also released in video showing Karen in a yellow pant suit. This pant suit was later worn by Cynthia Gibb (Karen) in the January 1989 TV movie 'The Karen Carpenter Story'. (Transcribed by David Story - January 2014)
