I wrote a song

Man, I had an awesome dream last night and I barely remember any of it. I think I was watching So You Think You Can Dance or something. There was a huge stage, all black, with some risers in the back. Some mid tempo music started playing, oh I wish I could describe it- kind of electronicy. Anyway, a spotlight came up on a girl dressed in bright yellows, aquas and greens and started singing. Then she did a little dance move and froze. Another spotlight came up and a guy was standing there and started singing. This continued for a while until the song started to rock out and they all started dancing and singing. The most awesome thing about this dream is that the song they were singing was not a real song, it was like I was writing a song in my sleep. I woke up like right after the dream and knew I would forget all the words to this awesome song, but I remembered one line. The line right before the song started to rock out, the last girl in the spotlight sang "You can keep time by the beating of my heart!"

I love the lyrics. And the fact that you were watching So You Think You Can Dance.

I don't actually know if that's what it was, but it's the only explanation, the weird thing is that I was watching it from above, like I was in the studio on the rafters or something.

if this happens again, you should try "conducting" them, like gesture with your hands and see if you can make them louder or quieter etc. I bet you can!

I have never seen this program, but I can imagine the set.

Where it felt like you were writing the song as it went along, I have felt that same thing when reading in a dream - where I can tell I am making up the words right before I see them, then they soon turn to gobbledy-gook or disappear.

Also seconding the conducting suggestion.
