A POCKETFUL OF DREAMS

She ran out of the hall and threw her home work on the floor
And this time, she swore to herself, she won´t be coming back no more
She nearly rushed upon me as I passed her by
And I could see her desperation and the fear in her eyes
So I took her in my arms and gently touched her face
And she grew strong and said she may have lost this race

But she will never break down, she will never lose her head
No, she won´t do that favour to her dad
Just a little girl at the age of seventeen
With bruises on her body and a pocketful of dreams

I met him by the playground where we used to go
But he wasn´t the same guy that I used to know
He told me ´bout his family, four hungry mouths to feed
And without a job to do there ain´t no way to make ends meet
Two little boys devisin´ plans, well, those days may be gone
But I know no one can keep this guy from goin´ on

No, he will never break down, he will never lose his head
No, he won´t do that favour to his dad
Beggin´ for a dime is not as foolish as it seems
For a man with growin´ weakness and a pocketful of dreams

I don´t even remember, back in 1975
To me the day he left was just another day in life
Mom never seemed to care about him coming home too late
But tears were in her eyes when she turned to me and said
‘Boy, your daddy´s left forever, he may be far away and gone
But no one ever keeps your mom from going on

No, she will never break down, she will never lose her head
No, she won´t do that favour to your dad
And one day she will see those days are better than they seem
He left me with a broken heart and a pocketful of dreams’

No, she will never break down, she will never lose her head
No, she won´t do that favour to my dad
And one day she will see those days are better than they seem
He left me with a broken heart and a pocketful of dreams
