lyrics

I dreamed I saw my grandfather
Up in heaven and he looked peaceful
He looked young again
And he smiled at me when I took his hand

So I told him how I missed him so
And how it made me sad that I never got to know
Him very well
When he was with us every single day

And then he laughed and said to me:
But I've been with you all along
All along
All along, all along

Then he pointed down
To where I came from to the world below
He said that's where I belong
But I begged to stay
I did not want to go away

So I told him how I've been so down
And how I can't quite turn my life around
Oh how I felt alone
And I needed him, yes I needed him

So he hugged me close and said:
But I'll be with you all along,
All along
All along, all along

And when I woke up my face was wet
From the tears I cried all through my dream last night
But I felt okay
And I hoped to dream again someday
