Lyrics
Dreams We Can't Resist, a Cajun Lullaby
2016 Cyndi Corkran/Starburst

I was born down on the bayou in a hammock in the trees
Singing swamp blues in the evening while the alligators tease
Musty mud flaps thru the floorboards, mother sipping her moonshine
Spanish moss shaping our vision, filtered light now you are mine

(chorus)
Underbelly of resistance, show us where we need to go
Your truth won't set us free, still we're longing so to know
Every one we've ever loved, every lip ever been kissed
Brings an evil spell upon us like the dreams we can't resist

I'm a treehouse in the morning, instigator after dark
Building fortunes in the bedroom, chasing wild game in the park
Hot breath blowing down upon us pouring fever through our veins
I can barely half remember why I ever took the blame

(chorus)
Underbelly of resistance, show us where we need to go
Your truth won't set us free, still we're longing so to know
Every one we've ever loved, every lip ever been kissed
Brings an evil spell upon us like the dreams we can't resist

(bridge)
Swamp blues be my lover, be my brother be my friend
Whisper promises beyond how truth will get us in the end

(chorus)
Underbelly of resistance, show us where we need to go
Your truth won't set us free, still we're longing so to know
Every one we've ever loved, every lip ever been kissed
Brings an evil spell upon us like the dreams we can't resist
