Rosanne Cash - Dreams Are Not My Home

“Dreams Are Not My Home” is a personal favorite from Rosanne Cash’s brilliant 2006 Capitol Records release, Black Cadillac – this uptempo number is fueled with more hooks than a weekend fishing party and lyrics that cut to the bone: “The waves are breaking on the wall/The queen of roses spreads her arms to fly, she falls/If i had wings I’d cut them down/And live without these dreams/So I could learn to love the ground”.  Black Cadillac was universally hailed by critics as a milestone in an already illustrious career: Newsweek called it “not just the best album she’s made in a long time. This is the best album she’s ever made”; Rolling Stone praised the disc as Rosanne’s “best and darkest since the intimate noir of 1990’s Interiors”.
