Saturday Songsters #2 – Newton Faulkner

This is the second of my ‘Saturday Songsters’ posts where I share a music video and song lyrics. This week I thought I’d post a video by one of my favourite musicians, Newton Faulkner. This track was his first single from his first album, ‘Hand Built by Robots’, released in 2007. After hearing the song play on the radio only a handful of times I bought the whole album. I wasn’t disappointed. I hope you all like it as much as I do.

Dream Catch Me

I close my eyes it’s you
And I know now who I am
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And I know now

There’s a place I go when I’m alone
Do anything I want, be anyone I wanna be
But it is us I see and I cannot believe I’m falling
That’s where I’m going, where are you going?
Hold it close, won’t let this go

Dream, catch me, yeah
Dream, catch me when I fall
Or else I won’t come back at all

You do so much but you don’t know it’s true
And I know now who I am
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And I know now

There’s a place I go when I’m alone
Do anything I want, be anyone I wanna be
But it is us I see and I cannot believe I’m falling
That’s where I’m going, where are you going?
Hold it close, won’t let this go

Dream, catch me, yeah
Dream, catch me when I fall
Or else I won’t come back at all

See you as a mountain, a fountain of God
See you as a descant soul in the setting sun
You as a sound just as silent as none
I’m yours

There’s a place I go when I’m alone
Do anything I want, be anyone I wanna be
But it is us I see and I cannot believe I’m falling

There’s a place I go when I’m alone
Do anything I want, be anyone I wanna be
But it is us I see and I cannot believe I’m falling
That’s where I’m going, where are you going?
Hold it close, won’t let this go

Dream, catch me, yeah
Dream, catch me when I fall
Or else I won’t come back at all

  1. For some reason my ipad won’t open up the music video but I’ll take your word for it, that it’s a pretty song!

  2. I like it! I’ve not listened to a lot of his stuff, but I have “Gone in the Morning” and it’s a fun song to play when I’m driving around. 🙂
