"No Dreams" lyrics by Lori Jean Finnila


I thought to be a princess

Live in a fine white house

Drive in a vet

Have my own island


I thought I had a dream

But I found I didn't know 

What one was

Until I had you

When I had already lost one


All the silver

Gold and sparkle became a blur

The lights, shine, camera, fashion

Became last in my mind



I couldn't find any dreams any more

All I could think was love 

That was the most important


The warmth

The touch

The closeness

Was all that I dreamed of now

My dreams had never been real

I didn't know what one was

I didn't know of the word or its meaning

It's a feeling I want 

To feel belonging 

Someplace of meaning

Importance, existence


No dreams

No dreams on my mind now

I don't know what one is

I thought I knew a dream

No dreams now

"Am I Awake" song by Lori Jean Finnila.


I know you really want me

or control me

I know I could be sad

and give up on life.

But I feel it would be better

to just put it away and get lost to the music

I only know when I feel this way I'll be alright.


Am I really here

Am I awake

I take one step away

and I don't feel the pain.

I'm here, but I'm outside of this situation

I'm in shock again

am I awake or am I dreaming.


I feel it would be better

to let the past go right now

I can see into the future

and make beauty of a bad situation.



We fight to keep it quiet

but why do we have to do this

blood bursts till it spills over

my quiet screams to no one.

Song "Dreams in a House" The Women in My Life #singersongwriter #newsong #alternativelifestyle #podcast

Image by Comfreak from Pixabay 

Podcast free at Amazon Audible, iHeartRadio, Pandora, and Spotify.

Draft of song "Dreams in a House"



Dreams in a house

People come see

A little girl

That brings ease


See me in my house

It has all my dreams

Make it clear

Make it here


Is time so important

To the essence of existence

We try so hard

To bind our hearts, our minds

They go frail

They go away

She comes and sees me on Sundays

We laugh and talk in all ways

Her disposition is quite clear

She comes here to cheer me on

Come see me in my window

Don’t make me run for my dreams

Or from a house

That has everything for me


My angels know what I need

It’s clear my desires

I have everything here I need

No more questions

No more answers

Needed from the past


Cuz a lifetime is once to be seen

It’s a lifetime to be seen

Make it clear

Make it here

Make it easy for me


See me in my house

It has all my dreams

Make it clear

Make it here

Dreams in my house

They’re all here

Dreams in a house

To a little girl

That brings ease

Dreams in a house

Dreams in my house

Draft of "This Time" How Far Would You Go? #newsong #unplugged #timelost #podcast #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter #alternativelifestyle #survivor

Podcast at iHeartRadio, Pandora, Spotify, and Audible at Amazon for free as well.

Draft of song "This Time"



Always thinking

Always moving

Trying to create

While running away


Too much time sometimes

Not enough at times

Not always the special place

Needed to think

To help bring me to create


Sometimes I have the thought

The idea I need to create

Don't have the warm spot

To think to put it into words

Too much noise, shouting, conflict

To get anything done


I'm always shuffling left and right

It seems

Can't seem to find the right direction

right words, even the emotion gets scrambled 


Why do I have to feel like this

So many times

When the time should be right

When something comes to my mind

Always dark, scary moments come to light before my eyes

Right when I don't need it most


I think I've found the moment 

One more time

The perfect place where I lose my mind

Banging on the walls

Imaginating all

Lost in the darkest and lightest

Places at the same time

Creating magic that's mine

I think I've found the place

Needed for this moment

This space, this time 

needed in my life

Too much time 

Always on my mind

Not enough space to recreate

Dooo doo doo

The end.

Watch for "Worried" coming out April 24th, or so on thereafter, as a remastered copy and 
"Simplicity" some time this month as a remaster as well.

Living In a Pretend World #newsong #unplugged #podcast #alternativelifestyle #singersongwriter #lorijeanfinnila #survivor

I did this song from a stance of standing up to an abuser. I'm sharing my alternative lifestyle focusing on the this theme in this week's podcast.

Draft of Song "Your World"

I'm mysterious

Maybe not

What you're looking for, me

What you think I am

You may be sick

Too much 

of what you believe 

to be too big or 

it's just you

Is that too nice to say

Even coming from me



your world 

it is just as a part of us 

as you

Your world

Your world



Your distaste in life

Or even your choices

Show vulgar acts

Don't touch me 

one more time

Though if I say

It doesn't matter anyway

You think you are it all

But you are just as small

As your beliefs



your world it is just 

as a part of us 

as you

Your world

Your world



Come here baby

You lost little lamb

I will coat you with sugar

All over and put you to bed


And when you have bad dreams

You will sink into the walls 

you've made for all of us

So don't fear 


Your world

Your World



your world

it is just 

as a part of us 

as you

Your world

Your world


Your world

Your world
