The beginning of this particular song plays like a dream that I’m watching the recap to. Glimpses of different scenes in a love affair that was written out of a fantastical storyline. One that has me thinking back to a time when things were fairy-tale like in a dream of my own. A time when the air temperature didn’t matter, the crimes happening all around us didn’t take place, and all I could see were her eyes and her smile in front of me, no matter if she was really there or not. The color of everything around us was picture perfect. The snow was whiter than any snow any human has ever seen― flawless like her skin. The sun was the brightest orange you could imagine. Not the color orange, but the fruit; all the same. If we had been in the caribbean then the sky was as blue as the water there, and both without a ripple in sight, even when our naked bodies dipped inside to be wrapped with the essence of the earth’s life. In this dream, our nakedness represents the ability for both of us to hide nothing from one another.
A friend of mine said today:
A true relationship is when you can tell each other about anything and everything. No secrets, no lies and no excuses.”
In this dream, both of us were escaping from past lives that we no longer yearned for. We both had learned the valuable lessons which one is meant to learn and take from every experience, and, we were both ready to find a utopia full of blissful surroundings, experiences, energies, and most importantly, moments. Moments filled with the kind of love that you see in the trailers for love stories. A lot of kissing, a ton of intimacy, beautiful smiles, sensual touches―soft whispers. Black and white images of moments captured from a storyline deemed “timeless”. Moments in the sand where two bodies simply laid embracing one another as if they knew a secret that no one else on the planet could ever see, know, or understand. A secret that’s only meaning was simpler than the act of laying there and staring into the sun-filled sky. The secret that says that love is all that matters here―on this planet, that is.
Dreams from Taken By Trees is quite simply a living and breathing moment of perfected love. It is an orchestrated love story for the ages told by the strings, and the angelic vocals that massages your shoulders into a deep sleep and places you right into a dream world that you will never want to wake from.
When souls bare naked for one another they are there to give back all of the hope that one another has lost for the world, and for love. They are there for one another to show each other that true love is sometimes found in the least expected corners of the world, and in forms that one could never truly see before.
True Love is your soul’s recognition of its counterpart”
What happens when the dream ends and you have to awaken?
I have no idea, but if I awaken from it some day, then I promise I will tell you all how the dream ended.
No one will believe us when we’ll tell them what we’ve seen
But baby I need ya, and no it’s not a dream.”
