I wrote this song during one of the darkest times of my life. It's the saddest song I've written so far. Walking around my studio apartment, I casually strummed my hand over my out-of-tune guitar, which I hadn't played in weeks. As I kept walking, I began hearing this song playing in my head. Immediately, I sat down, grabbed the guitar and started recording. And that's how "In a Dream" came to be.
Here is the video of the recording: youtube.com/watch?v=T-9gqYvUjmY
. But beware, the purpose here was just to get the idea down, not to sing well.
