Steven Tyler, the lead singer of the Boston band Aerosmith, wrote “Dream On” when he was only 17 years old. Just a kid with a dream and the motivation to achieve his personal goals in the music world. The song is specifically about “singing through the laughter and the tears” – which was probably Tyler’s way of expressing his resilience to be what he dreamed of without letting anything get in his way – but we think the lyrics and essence of the song can be applied to any dream, not just within the music industry.
Sing with me, sing it for the year
Sing for the laughter and sing it for the tear
Sing with me, if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away…
It’s about supporting one another to conquer anything that may come your way, because you never know what the next day will bring. That’s true teamwork.
