Orleans

Orleans is an American pop-rock band best known for its hits "Dance with Me" (1975), "Still the One", from the album Waking and Dreaming (1976) and "Love Takes Time" (1979). The group's name evolved from the music it was playing at the time of their formation, which was inspired by Louisiana artists such as Allen Toussaint and the Neville Brothers. Orleans was formed in Woodstock, New York in January 1972 by vocalist/guitarist/songwriter John Hall, vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Larry Hoppen and drummer/percussionist Wells Kelly. In October of that year, the group expanded to include Larry's younger brother, Lance, on bass. Drummer Jerry Marotta joined in 1976, completing the quintet. more »

Dreaming again
Asleep in his bed
A river of visions runs through his head

Strange as it seems
This chaos of dreams
Can change the course and shape of things

He sees with an eye only open at night
What breeds in the darkness
Blossoms in the light

Awake in the morning
Thrust without warning
Into life all over again
Still chasing pleasure
Running from pain
Though I know they're both the same

Then the fog rolls away
And I'm here in today
Thinking I can see how dreams become reality
Since I opened up my eyes
It's time to arise
And show that I'm
Not just

Dreaming, dreaming again
Hey, hey, yeah
Dreaming, dreaming again
Waking up and
Dreaming (Dreaming again)
Dreaming again
Dreaming (Dreaming again)
Dreaming again

Dreaming (Dreaming again)
Dreaming again
Waking and dreaming again
Dreaming (Dreaming again)
Dreaming again
Dreaming again
Dreaming (Dreaming again)
Dreaming again
Dreaming again
Dreaming (Dreaming again)
Dreaming again
Dreaming again

Waking up and
Dreaming (Dreaming again)
Dreaming again
Dreaming again
Dreaming (Dreaming again)
Dreaming again
Dreaming again
Dreaming (Dreaming again)
Dreaming again
Dreaming again
