In putting together the collection for “Love Story,” my 19th album, I wanted to find songs that chronicled my 25-year love story with my husband/business partner/best friend. When I came across Don’t Dream It’s Over, I knew I had to record it. The song just broke my heart with its brutal honesty. As poignant then as it is now, this song soulfully describes the need to stick together to get through. ~ Robin

There is freedom within
There is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There’s a battle ahead
Many battles are lost
But you’ll never see the end of the road
While you’re travelling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win
