The Lyrics

I crossed the stream and lost my dream
At first I yelled and then I screamed
If you see it floating, would you fish it out?
Maybe I'll keep trying, that's what life's about
I believe it got caught
Somewhere in the rocks where I can't see
I believe it got caught
And it's hiding skillfully from me
I crossed the stream and lost my dream
I crossed the stream and lost my dream

I had a dream, and it was big
And now it's shriveled like a fig
And my destination isn't clear at all
Pushing through the current, all I do is fall
I believe I got caught
In the ruts of life, I must get free
I believe I got caught
Now my freedom's only up to me
I crossed the stream and lost my dream
I crossed the stream and lost my dream

I had a dream, I tried to sing
I tried to write of everything
If you see it floating, will you fish it out?
I should keep on trying, that's what life's about
I believe it got caught
Somewhere in my head where I can't see
I believe it got caught
And it's hiding skillfully from me
I crossed the stream and lost my dream
I crossed the stream and lost my dream

Kind of like when you're waking up from a dream, and you still remember it, and as the seconds and minutes tick by, you can sense your memory of it fading, fading, fading........

Awe cripes, Royce, now ya got me cryin'! Seriously, very beautiful and evocative, if melancholy, piece of work. 555

Consider this one the cynic's comeback: good pacing, rhymes and allusions to the original song. One of the best ABBA sendups on this site!

Ingeborg: Thanks for your comments regarding my parody "I Lost My Dream"; I don't believe I've seen your comments before, but I appreciate them. This is one of the parodies that had more votes, but they got deleted by mistake, I guess you know about that episode...thanks for reading!
