She Would Be You

If I were to build a woman
from my dreams
she would be you
But we both know that dreams aren’t real
even when they do come true

Dreams don’t have to obey laws
like gravity or ticking time
There’s no law I wouldn’t break
when loving you becomes a crime

Love is not an empty word
an empty thought
an empty dream
Love is an unruly beast
that’s feeds on gold and gasoline

If I were to build a dream
and fill it up with
parts of you
We both know the dream will end
like you, my friend
and like me too

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
