Haunting All My Dreams (About Sequel)

come along with me (spiritual) replied to your LiveJournal post in which persona created to do the nano challenge (blondbomb) said:

This project is taking over my life! I can barely remember a song with a line "Haunt(ing?) all my dreams".  Does anyone know of a song with a line in it like that.  I hate it when I get obsessive/compulsive!

My word count for Friday was 2887, more than I'd hoped for, as I had to take tickets at the football game after a full day of teaching.

My work is a sequel to a stalled novel I began in August of last year and pecked away at all year, but am having trouble with.  It seems weird to be writing a sequel to something unfinished, but maybe I can unblock that way.

Here's the title and first few lines:


Despina feels depression settle around her as if she has entered a cloud composed of it as she watches Alberto and Sarita leave with Adriana.  She has her doubts that their lives will be any better back on the Stone Circles Reservation, and does not trust Adriana Happydog to invest much time in them, now that Cu, the object of her affection, is apparently out of the picture.

I sure hope everyone's projects are turning out as they expected they would!

Their reply was:

Is this it maybe? ;)

I thought love was
Only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else
But not for me
Love was out to get to me
That's the way it seems
Disappointment haunted
All my dreams

And then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love
I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her
If I tried

A Glimpse of Home by Kansas

When I was very young so many songs were sung
So much wasted time on an uphill climb
But you were always there a feeling in the air
There was nothing to fear you were so near
Now you are here once again
As I stand in your presence
I can feel the quiet patience of your gaze
Like an old superstition
You are haunting all my dreams and waking days.

Child of the Night by Bonnie O'Donald

I see her day or night.
She's haunting all my dreams;
Restless eyes, with closed down mind.
Her body holds the horrors
Her young age does disguise.
She's looking for some subtle sign.
She turns to me in sorrow.
She offers up her shame;
So young, to be so old.
She's carrying the sins of the world.

I try hard not to see her,
Look into those nightmare eyes.
I try hard not to see her face.
The tears she holds inside,
So tight against the night,
Those demons keep her afraid.
What happened to her childhood?
Where did it all begin?
So young, to be so old;
She's carrying the sins of the world.

This child of the night;
She lives inside the dark.
She feels her way in anger.
She reaches in my heart.

Her voice rings in my head
As her body leans to me.
She whispers in a secret tone.
"Do you know why I'm here?
I'll tell you if you want.
My daddy can't leave me alone.
But I have a brave new friend who lives inside my head.
She will keep me safe from him."

When heaven sounds its trumpets,
And thunder splits the sky,
This child will not cry.
The walls of hurt around her,
This weight upon her heart,
Will lift and open wide.
And when God in all her glory
Claims this little girl,
"My child, in whom I'm pleased;
She's carried the sins of the world."

Either of those?

Blondbomb's reply was:

Subject: Wow! Cool!

I've never heard of either of those, but the lyrics are super. Did you know them, or find them somewhere?
What genre of music (does MUSIC have genre?) are they? Thank you so much for your efforts.

I'd never heard of either. I found them via :) Kansas is a classic rock band. I've never heard
of the other person.
