This song was inspired by a young woman I met recently ... She's just about to graduate
from college, and is engaged to be married to her high school sweetheart. She's looking forward to a fairy tale life ...
you know ... the kids, the house, the white picket fence.
I began writing this song to tell
about the fairy tale dreams of my own that had crashed and burned. But no! I still have dreams! And they
do come true! So I changed the song to be about the beauty of believing.
this song to American Idol for their 2008 Song Contest. Not to appear disgruntled ... but ... I've heard the 20
they selected. Maybe 3 are decent and worthy. My guess is they make a few hundred thousand dollars in entry fees
and listen to maybe a few hundred. Or perhaps even select songs they solicit via insider connections. So ... I
say their contest is truly a fairy tale : )
your dreams! Follow your heart.
And to that young woman:
Fairy tales do come true ... yes, they do!
