Nikki & Rich – Dreaming (played on Hellcats episode I Say A Little Prayer)

Hellcats is a new series about cheerleading. I won’t do a review here because that’s not what this post is for. At the end of season 1 episode 2, I Say A Little Prayer, there’s a scene in the bar when they all start dancing and the track that was playing immediately grabbed my attention! So I googled and searched all over but even on the TV network’s own website they had the wrong track listed!

Eventually I discovered it was by Nikki & Rich and is a song called Dreaming 🙂 I’ve transcribed the lyrics but I must say, this was the hardest song I’ve ever transcribed! There’s one line I’m still not 100% sure what she’s saying but I’ve made a guess as best I can – if anyone can tell what is actually being said in the question-marked line then let me know 🙂

You can find the track on youtube (not the official video) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuuW4qAU8rk

Now here are the much awaited lyrics that aren’t anywhere else online yet! Enjoy 🙂

Nikki & Rich – Dreaming

Mmmmmmmm mmmmmmm.
Mmmmmmmm mmmmmmm.

When did the angel loose her wings,
When she flew from the ground and adopted dreams.
All the gold melted down and the gates were closed,
Life was revealed and the past exposed.
Sent away from the land of the green,
Forced to dig a hole to be a home for the dream.
Betcha never thought I’d get out of the fields,
That’s what gave me life and time really heals.

Oh oh oh from a back to forth,
It’s just a go go go from the side to north.
Listen no no no can’t sell me short,
It’s just a oh oh oh, just a row oh oh.

I’m getting somewhere,
I’m getting somewhere.
I’m gonna be there,
I’m gonna be there.

Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.
Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.
Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.
Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.

When did the angel fade from white,
Lost her place in the clouds,
Took her queues from the night.
Set appart by the fall that destroyed her grace,
But the heat from the flames never touched her face.
Arise in the day of the blazing sun,
Saw above all the hate in the need of blood,
I was pressed to succum to the dragging down,
Yeah my hand grabbed the line and I pulled me out.

Oh oh oh from a back to forth,
It’s just a go go go from the side to north.
Listen no no no can’t sell me short,
It’s just a oh oh oh, just a row oh oh.

I’m getting somewhere,
I’m getting somewhere.
I’m gonna be there,
I’m gonna be there.

Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.
Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.
Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.
Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.

I get so fly away,
My glory day,
I’m on my way.

I see the seasons change,
And I know the cold will freeze the pain.

Over the meadows and through the woods,
All through the ground all grows with bloom. <—(?????)

I see the lining as my view to the sun,
Got the wind at my back cause a change gonna come.

I’m getting somewhere,
I’m getting somewhere.
I’m gonna be there,
I’m gonna be there.

Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.
Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.
Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.
Been dreaming dreaming dreaming.
