I love this song; the live version isn’t quite as good as the recorded version- but it sure beats the Eli Young Band cover. Will Hoge is probably one of the best undiscovered talents I’ve heard in a long time.

Way back on a radio dial
Fire got lit inside a bright eyed child
Every note just wrapped around your soul
From steel guitar to Memphis all the way to rock and roll

Whoa, I can hear ’em playing
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
Whoa, I can hear ’em saying
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

Downtown, where I used to wander
Old enough to get there but too young to get inside
I would stand out on the sidewalk
Listen to the music playing every Friday night

Whoa, I can hear ’em playing
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
Whoa, I can hear ’em saying
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

Some dreams stay with you forever
Drag you around and lead you back to where you were
Some dreams keep on getting better
Got to keep believing if you want to know for sure

Whoa, I can hear ’em playing
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
Whoa, I can hear ’em saying
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

Whoa, I can hear ’em playing
I can hear the ringing of a beat up old guitar
Whoa, I can hear ’em saying
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart

Keep on dreaming
Don’t let it break your heart

Music Monday: Heaven

by Brett Dennen

Beyond the rules of religion, The cloth of conviction
Above all the competition, Where fact and fiction meet

There’s No color lines or casts or classes, There is no fooling the masses
Whatever faith you practice, Whatever you believe

Heaven. Heaven. What the hell is Heaven?
Is there a home for the homeless? Is there hope for the hopeless?

Throw away your myth misconceptions, There ain’t no walls around heaven
There are no codes you gotta know to get in, No minutemen or border patrol

You must lose all earthly possession, Leave behind your weapon
You cannot buy your salvation, There is no pot of gold

Heaven ain’t got no prison, No government no business
No banks or politicians, No armies and No police

Castles and cathedrals crumble, Pyramids and pipelines tumble
The failure keeps you humble, Leads us closer to peace,

Heaven. Heaven. What the hell is Heaven?
Is there a home for the homeless? Is there hope for the hopeless?

Music Monday: Thankful by Josh Groban

“Thankful”

Somedays we forget To look around us
Somedays we can’t see The joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves We take when we should give.So for tonight we pray for What we know can be.
And on this day we hope for What we still can’t see.
It’s up to us to be the change And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for.

Look beyond ourselves There’s so much sorrow
It’s way too late to say I’ll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth It’s so long overdue

So for tonight we pray for What we know can be
And every day we hope for What we still can’t see
It’s up to us to be the change And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for.

Even with our differences

There is a place we’re all connected
Each of us can find each other’s lightSo for tonight we pray for What we know can be
And on this day we hope for What we still can’t see
It’s up to us to be the change

And even though this world needs so much more
There’s so much to be thankful for
