0 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana -- On The Record-- Dreams alone don't solve problems ROCK 'N' ROLL DREAMS COME TRUE You can't run away forever/But there's nothing wrong/With getting a good head start/You want to shut out the night/You want to shut out the sun/You want to shut out/The pieces of a broken heart I By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST I Think of how/We'd lay down together/We'd be listening to the radio/So loud and so strong/Every golden nugget coming/Like a gift of the gods/Someone must have blessed us/When he gave us those songs (REFRAIN) I treasure your love/i never want to lose it/You've been through/The fires of hell/And I know you've got/The ashes to prove it/I treasure your love/I want to show you how to use it/You've been through/A lot of pain in the dirt/And I know you've got/the scars to prove it Remember everything that I told you/And I'm telling you againfrhat it's true/When you are alone and afraid/And you're com- pletely amazed/To find there's nothing/Anybody can do/Keep on believ- ing/And you'll discover baby There's always something magic/There's al- ways something new/And when you really need it the most/That's when rock 'n' roll dreams/Come through/The beat is yours forever/The beat is always true And when you really need it the most/That's when rock 'n' roll dreams/Come through for you Once upon a time was a back- beat/Once upon a time/All the chords come to life/And the an- gels had guitars/Even before they had wings/If you hold on to a chorus/You can get through the night (REPEAT REFRAIN) (REPEAT VERSES 2 AND 3) Written by Jim Steinman Sung by Meatloaf Copyright (c) 1993 by MCA Records Inc. Did you know that "angels had guitars even be- fore they had wings?" I can't say that I knew it. Meatloaf tells us it's so, however, in "Rock 'n' Roll Dreams Come True." Actually, this bit of heavenly lore is just an image in the song, an image used to support Meat- loafs primary assertion that "when you really need it the most, that's when rock 'n' roll dreams come through for you." Apparently these are dreams about special, close times with someone you love. Yet, a romantic rela- tionship does not consist solely of heavenly mo- ments. There are even times when romance feels more like a trip "through the fires of hell." When this occurs, we need "something magic ... something new" to keep love alive. Perhaps the song is correct in suggesting that music can help. Something that allows us to re-experience the dream of falling in love might help us make it through difficult and uncertain periods in a re- mance. However, it usually takes more than $ image f angels with guitars. What is needed recommitment to the shared love and a to face up to the problems that are pulling mance apart. In my counseling practice, I am meet with many married couples. They have me an insight that I want every When it comes to encountering c the potential to destroy love, there are to overcome hurt and rebuild a relationship; In our society, most things that appear get thrown away. It is important to throw-it-away mentality need not apply tel love. We can make the choice to work lems and rediscover endearment Of course, meeting and dating a r is part of growing up. And, yes, many teen mances will end. Still, it is good to ponder what the Catholic Church, marriage means that God's holiness dwells within love of marriage. Still, emotional occur; the effort needed to repair the worthwhile. With most of the married couples possible. Sure, this requires the partners to work on things, but , : ness exists counseling can help. If Meatloaf is referrin to living the ing a lasting love, then indeed rock 'n' can come true. Just remember that it may effort to achieve the goal.
