Hey, Marvin!  Thanks for sharing your song with us.  I like the idea- deep and meaningful- but you’d didn’t make it a slow, boring ballad.  Depth, but easy to listen to, as well.  Well done.

The end of the 2nd verse- I’d like a little more clarity there.  What is it you’re thinking about that’s keeping you awake?  Maybe wake up in the 1st line and spend the rest of the verse fleshing that out.  War, crime, drugs, whatever.  Paint a picture of that (or do something more personal to the singer/character), so that when the next verse talks about challenges, the listener has more context and doesn’t have to do so much work to fill in that blank.

Overall, I like it.  A lot of good stuff in it.  Hope that helps!  Please pay it forward by leaving a comment on another writer’s song.  Thanks!

Last night I had a dream that seemed so real
About a man who had invented a miracle pill
Said it’ll cure every disease - fix every disability
The world is gonna be completely healed

Then a young man in a wheel chair stilled the crowd
When he raised his hand said sir can I speak now
He looked fresh off the farm - ‘cept for a tattoo on his arm
I could read through the scars Army Proud

Then he said
I’ve been tested and questioned “Why me Lord”
And some things are a challenge that’s for sure
But I believe God uses problems – cause everybody’s got ‘em
To show the world that love is how we heal
Love is the real - miracle pill

Then he said I don’t believe God makes mistakes
And there’s a reason for each being He creates
That’s about when I woke up - started thinkin’ about the stuff
Like everybody does that keeps us awake

I’ve been tested and questioned “Why me Lord”
And some things are a challenge that’s for sure
But I believe God uses problems – cause everybody’s got ‘em
To show the world that love is how we heal
Love is the real - miracle pill

I believe when we are down to nothin’
God is up to somethin’

I’ve been tested and questioned “Why me Lord”
And some things are a challenge that’s for sure
But I believe God uses problems – cause everybody’s got ‘em
To show the world that love is how we heal
Love is the real - when life goes uphill - miracle pill

Last night I had a dream that seemed so real
