The Cooperage Song (Power of a Dream)

A song inspired by, and dedicated to, The Cooperage Project in Honesdale PA

D                            G
a hollow building is nothing but bricks
A
until someone fills it up
D
with people, sound and light
an old factory – who can say what it might be
it might become community
if you do it right

chorus:
anyone who says you can’t make something out of nothing
well they don’t understand the power of a dream
everybody knows that you can make things so much better
when you get people together
meet me at the Cooperage (la la la la…)

feed your body, feed your soul
learn a skill or play a role
you know the limit really is the sky
buy some greens or play some blues
hear from the past, taste something new
share the things that money just can’t buy

(chorus)

take a seat and take your time
we’ve got the coffee, bring some wine
dance and sing as we turn another page
the moment’s here for you to seize
build a barrelfull of memories…
let’s meet at the Cooperage (la la la la…)

final chorus:
anyone who says you can’t make something out of nothing
well they just don’t understand the power of a dream
we all know that we can make things so much better
when we bring it all together
meet me at the Cooperage
la la la la let’s meet at the Cooperage
la la la la welcome to the Cooperage
