Lyrics

Concrete And Steel
Patterson Barrett/criminal tunes
 
Last night I had a dream, you let me hold you in my arms
And in the darkness there, I could smell your hair as I held you close to me
Though I know it could never be
And the love I felt was real, as concrete and steel, that love was real
 
It felt so good back then, and I felt that way again
That moment in time again was mine, when we lived in harmony
And we knew it was meant to be
And the love we felt was real, as concrete and steel, that love was real
 
And nothing that’s happened can change any of that
Not the silly spats or the bitter combat
And so in my dreams I’ve forgotten all that was wrong for you and me
But now I see…
 
And in my dream you asked what did I do
And I said I’ll take care of you
And for a while last night everything was right as I held you in my arms
Everything was right
 
Something happened when we kissed, and something still exists
We’ve parted ways, but a part still stays and lives forever in my head
As I lie here in my bed
And the love we felt was real, as concrete and steel, that love is real
And the love I feel is real, as concrete and steel, my love is real
