  1. My Spanish Dream

From the recording My Spanish Dream

"My Spanish Dream” is a song of longing. Spain is among the places I’d love to see and the visions that I have of it from Spanish literature and music are often on my mind. I hope that the imagery leaves the listener with the same warm feeling I have.

Lyrics

MY SPANISH DREAM (Mi Sueño Español)
Music and Lyrics by Christine Spero


I lay alone in the dark and the world floats by.
I have a map of my hopes and the course I’ll fly.
Take me where I’ve never been,
Deep in my Spanish dream.

Far from the morning star, gypsy caravan.
Sound of a sweet guitar, Andalucian.
Show me what I’ve never seen,
Deep in my Spanish dream.

Mysteries hidden behind castle walls,
Legends as sweet as the wine...
...festivals!

(voices)
(piano solo)

Let the Boleros of old be my lullaby.
Dancers in crimson and gold,
Castanets held high.
Windmills are more than they seem...
Deep in my Spanish dream.

Mysteries hidden behind castle walls,
Legends as sweet as the wine...
...festivals!

(horn solo)

Deep in my Spanish dream, deep in my Spanish dream, (repeat)
(Yo lo quiero)
