  1. Tainted Dreams

Words and Music by Carlos Tabora and Marilyn Oakley

Lyrics

Intro
I tried to hold you, but you turned to say..it’s just a dream

Verse 1
Your pillow’s bare where you used to sleep
But I swear I still can hear you breathe
A gold chain that I gave you to show my love
Hangs hauntingly, reminding me

CHORUS
Tainted dreams are all I have
Of a life you left behind
Our love once blessed now feels so dead
It bleeds black, no longer red
Taking every memory that we had
And leaving tainted dreams instead

Verse 2
I’ll never get that vision from my mind
Where another’s arms held you tight
Where a moon showed the deceit in your soul
One you thought I’d never know

CHORUS
Tainted dreams are all I have
Of a life you left behind
Our love once blessed now feels so dead
It bleeds black, no longer red
Taking every memory that we had…

Bridge
I no longer go to Lover’s Cove where we kissed
I can still taste my bitterness
And that’s not someone I want to know
I heard goodbye coming from your lips
Now I need something new to get me over this
Save my soul. Help me let me go.

FINAL CHORUS
Tainted dreams are all that’s left
Of a life I’m leaving behind
A love once ours is laid to rest
You can take these tainted dreams
I need room for new memories
It’s time to live my life instead
