Someone Else's Dream

Someone Else's Dream
Faith Hill
Her momma's still got that sequin gown that she wore in '68
She taught her early how to smile that smile and wave from the parade
It took a whole lot of years and tears For her momma to finally admit
No matter how many stitches and pins
That old dress was never gonna fit
She was daddy's little girl
Momma's little angel
Teacher's pet, Pageant queen
She said, "All my life I've been pleasin' everyone but me,
Waking up in someone else's dream"
Her daddy used to say, "You'll make a lovely bride someday
He'll ride up on a big white horse and just carry you away"
It took twenty-five years and some broken vows
Before they'd finally see
There's a little more to love and life
Than fairy tales and hand me down dreams
She was daddy's little girl
Momma's little angel
Teacher's pet, Pageant queen
She said, "All my life I've been pleasin' everyone but me,
Waking up in someone else's dream"
Now she's got twenty-seven candles on her cake
And she means to make her life her own
Before there's twenty-eight
She was daddy's little girl
Momma's little angel
Teacher's pet, Pageant queen
She said, "All my life I've been pleasin' everyone but me,
Waking up in someone else's dream"
