Hi Marvin,
thanks for sharing this one, it’s one of my favorites of your endless stream of great songs. I like the meaningful message and the way the lyric is constructed. The demo could have a bit more power. I try to imagine how it would sound, if Brad Paisley would cut it.

This is a really great song. Love the concept and everything flows smoothly. Good prosody between the music and lyrics. Love the little tag/twist on the last chorus (when life goes uphill). Wouldn’t change a thing.

Marvin, have listened to this one a number of times—VERY SOLID—one small thought—I might have been tempted to “simplify/thin out” the instrumentation on the last chorus (so as to possibly make it feel slightly more intimate and personal), but that is a very small suggestion—I liked this song straight out of the gate, and immediately wondered why a well-known recording artist has not recorded this one yet (and yes, Brad Paisley DOES come to mind)—best of luck in all your songwriting endeavors.

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
