Not so sure about singing one more bullet from the Billboard charts.

lyrics

When the Dream is Gone

Disappeared without a trace
A little luck, a nicer place
Might have made a mark back then
Got tired of the vacant eyes
Broken promises and the lies
Playing for drinks and the drunk young men

What do you dream when the dream is gone...

So I was driving just to feel alive
The back roads off of Southdown Drive
An old car and a case of beer
Loud noise from the radio
Quick curves that the lights don’t show
Drinking and trying to steer

CHORUS
What do you dream when the dream is gone
Where do you go when you can’t go on
You’ve been a dreamer for so long
How can you touch when you can’t be strong
Who do you trust when the whole world’s wrong
You’ve been a dreamer for too long

Ronnie joined a band out west
All the hits, any request
Working hard to get a break
So I signed on for a while
Change of image, change of style
Working hard to get a break

I used to sing like I understood
I had the strength once to make it good
I’d use the beat from an angry heart
But now it’s just one more time
One more place, one more bad rhyme
One more bullet from the billboard chart

CHORUS
What do you dream when the dream is gone
Where do you go when you can’t go on
You’ve been a dreamer for so long
How can you touch when you can’t be strong
Who do you trust when the whole world’s wrong
You’ve been a dreamer for too long
Too long
