about

I really do believe that somebody from the new distribution company made a mistake on putting the name for the album, "Cyndi Grecco" that didn't match the title, "Making Our Dreams Come True" and so did YouTube Music, Spotify and ITunes, so I changed it back to the album title, "Making Our Dreams Come True" that matches the same title of the album, shown on the front album cover of Cyndi smiling. Thanks for letting me correct the mistake.


As mentalitch.com once said:

Following the chart success of “Making Our Dreams Come True” was a full-length LP. Grecco’s second single was a disco-laced tune called “Dancing, Dancing.” But this one didn’t make a dent on the charts.

Grecco also sang another theme number for another ABC sitcom Blanksy’s Beauties, another spin-off series from Happy Days, although not as successful asLaverne & Shirley. The theme song is titled “I Want It All.”

Despite this, Grecco remained a one-hit wonder, so we should remember her whenever we happen to hear “Making Our Dreams Come True,” the tune which was popularized by one of America’s most well-loved sitcoms.

Track Name: Find Somebody
I know I'll never see you back again with me
I'll have to set you free and find somebody, find somebody
The times we're here alone
I thought you were my own
Now that you've left my home
I'll have to find somebody, find somebody

I never thought that I would have to face this any time
Give up the loving that was mine
No, no, I never thought today would be
Would be the last time, your last time with me

The things I taught to you and things I never knew
I'm gonna lose them, too
And I'll have to find somebody, find somebody
You know it's hard for me to shake this misery
Give up the you in me and find somebody, find somebody

Chorus:
Yes, I'm gonna find me
I gotta find me
Find somebody
Yes, I'm gonna find me
I gotta find me
Find somebody

Listen to me, darling
I know I'll never see you back again with me
I'm gonna have to set you free
And find somebody, find somebody

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Watching You
I am watching you watching me
And what I feel inside
Well, I just can't say it in song
I feel so, I feel so, I feel so sweet and strong about you
I feel so, I feel so nice about you

Thought tonight will end, our love will grow
You came into my life
And you touched me deep within
I need you, I need you
I need to feel your arms around me
I feel so, I feel so right about you

Some people spend their lives in search of what will not be
Though dancing in the dark alone is not a fate for me
What we did before is past,
The future none can see
But this forever feeling's made me come alive
And that would not survive without you

Sitting watching you
Watching me and what I feel inside
Well, I just can't say it in song
I feel so, I feel so, oh, God, so sweet and strong about you
I feel so, I feel so right about you
Track Name: Sweet #1 (Set Me Free)
Broken down and funky saloons
That's where I've been playing my tunes
Talkers and brawlers, pick-ups and callers
Talking through my song
Gotta leave before too long
A song could set me free (Sweet #1)
I need a hit to make me free (Sweet #1)

Customers they sit around
And treat me like I'm someone they owned
I'm singing their songs
Corny and square songs
Miss my rock 'n' roll
Need a song to soothe my soul
I need a hit to make me free (Sweet #1)
A song could set me free (Sweet #1)

Honey, out here the nights are lonely
Out here away from you
Baby, you know I love you only
But I got to pay my dues
Now I got this dream and with my songs
I'm gonna make it come true for me and for you
I need a hit to make me free (Sweet #1)
A song could set me free (Sweet #1)

Broken down and funky saloons
That's where I've been playing my tunes
Talkers and brawlers, pick-ups and callers
Talking through my song
Gotta leave before too long
A song could set me free (Sweet #1)
I need a hit to make me free (Sweet #1)
Track Name: Love Him in December
Don't you worry
I won't try to make him come back to me
If he doesn't want to stay
Just want to tell you what would make him happy
What might keep from leaving you
The way he's leaving me today

He takes his coffee in the morning
Just a little warning
Lukewarm, with cream
The softer kind of singing sends his heart to winging
Sing him a dream
Love him in December, so he won't remember me

Wasn't his fault
Wasn't my fault either
Before we started
Guess we should've thought it through
Now you've got him
So before you lose him like I lost him
Let me tell you what to do
So he won't be leaving you

He likes his cigarettes and brandy
You better keep them handy, come sweet loving time
Talking about the good days
Trying out the new ways
Songs that don't rhyme
Love him in December, so he won't remember me
Track Name: Drowning in the Sea of Love
I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But now I'm drowning
Drowning in the sea of love

Let me tell you all about it

I've been out here so very long
I've lost all my direction
Baby, when you came my way
Lord, I had found my protection
But a strong wind came into my life
And truly took me by surprise
And I can't see to control these tears
That's falling from my eyes

I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But right now I'm drowning
Drowning in the sea of love

Listen to me

Baby, I depended on you
For our love navigation
But now you're gone and deserted me
Can't you see that I'm in desperation
I'm in the middle of a bad love storm
Oh, yeah, I just ain't ready for it
I look around
All I can see is water coming over me

I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But right now I'm kind of worried, baby
Baby, I'm drowning in the sea of love

All I do is cry
All I do is walk around and cry
But now I'm drowning
I'm drowning in the sea of love

I've been down one time
And I've been down two times
But I can't control myself
I'm drowning, baby
I'm drowning in the sea of love

But that's all right
I don't mind drowning for your love
That's all right
Baby, I say it's alright

You've got the kind of love that make me feel all right
You've got the kind of love, baby, that make me cry all night
Track Name: I Think I Can Make It
The day that I walked out your door
You know I didn't feel right
The second day away from home
I couldn't sleep at night
But things are gonna work out fine
Cause I finally made the move this time

Chorus:
And I think I can make it
Now without you
And I think I can make it
Now without you
And I think I can make it
Now without you
Without you, I'm gonna see it through

You never would act like a man
Broke every promise you made
But, honey I loved you so much
Instead of leaving I stayed
But everything is gonna be right
Cause leaving made me see the light

Repeat Chorus

To think I almost made a fool of myself
Trying to get back home to you
There were times I felt like dying
But I did what I had to do
Think of all the love we shared
It's a story still untold
But I'm finding the strength to carry on
I'm finding the strength to carry the load
Track Name: Hello Again
Hello again
Remember starry summer nights alone making love together
In a village bar our toast to love that would last forever
Hello again
Remember we first heard our song
And danced on the lawn with showers
Of a hundred shooting stars that fell through the sky for hours

Bridge:
Another time we were two different people
But you're still a part of me
The memory lives on
We had more than just a one-night-stand
But certain things are meant to end
It was really love
So take my hand and be my friend

Hello again
Remember on that lonely beach
Your arms kept me safe from danger
Then the autumn fog rolled in
To hide our love from strangers
Remember crystal water days, a snowman and children's laughter
How we snugged by the fire
And slept till the morning after

Repeat Bridge

Hello again
Track Name: Dancing, Dancing
Dancing, dancing across the old wood floor
Fire flashes in your eyes and I love you more
Dancing with you makes me feel so good
Gets me feeling things inside, never thought I would

Chorus:
Is the way you move me, baby
Just for me, just for me
Let the music set you free
Set you free
Free with me, free with me, free with me
Let the madness of the music set us free

Magic, magic is what is like with you
I think I'm feeling joy again, can't believe it's true
Motion, motion, take me out of time
Come and help me to forget who and what was mine

Repeat Chorus

Sweet music, sweet music
Dancing, dancing (2x)

Music's going through me, going right through me
Nothing but music, sweet, sweet music

Music, music makes my body free
Show me that it does to you what it does to me
Dancing, dancing lets the good times stay
If I give it one more chance, love will find a way

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Feeling Better
I want to take you back to the high school gymnasium
With the freshmen and sophomores sitting on this side
And the juniors and seniors sitting on that side
And way down there
At the end of the gymnasium is the football team

And as I walk down on the red crepe paper
My high-heeled shoes are digging into my feet
And my push-up bra is digging into my ribs
And this tall, good-looking guy I'm holding onto over here

He's the basketball captain
He whispers under his breath, "Oh, shoot!"
But I keep smiling as I walk down there
Holding onto the arm of this big, strong man
See, I'm the football princess
And that's what football princesses do is smile

See, I was a freshman then
And you were one of the lettermen
The nights were warm in victory's name
I know the others knew
That heaven was to be with you
And when the deadly was in, of course
The two of us would win "Most likely to succeed"

You were going to study law
And I'd be what my teachers saw
A glowing smile, a college queen
The woman behind the man
Who seemed to need to have the best in life
Including me, a faithful wife
They planned the wedding in advance
Unafraid to take a chance that children would succeed

I'll be damned, we all pulled through
To think of all the crazy things we wanted to do
You would be a hero and I'd be a queen
Think of all the living we'd have passed up, passed by
Never would have seen it
I'll be damned, we all pulled through
To think of all the crazy things we wanted to do
Well, it may sound silly, but I tell you it's real
The older I get, a whole lot better I feel

Your hair is long and braided now
And I can hardly remember how
It felt to have smooth, shiny legs
Or what you looked like in your pegged pants
I work at a mountain school
My hammer and my mind as tools
You were living on a farm
A brand new baby in your arms
They're tight, we did succeed

The age is showing on my hands
And you've become a wiser man
Survival took us separate ways
But through the years the memory stays
Within my mind of how we looked
When we first had our pictures took
We thought the dream would never end
But now we don't have to pretend
That we will all succeed

I'll be damned, we all pulled through
To think of all the crazy things we wanted to do
You would be a hero and I'd be a queen
Think of all the living we'd have passed up, passed by
Never would have seen it
I'll be damned, we all pulled through
To think of all the crazy things we wanted to do
Well, it may sound silly, but I tell you it's real
The older I get, a whole lot better I feel
