Dark Side

IF DREAMS ARE MEANT FOR NIGHTTIME,
THEN WHAT BECOMES OF DAY,
WHERE WE LIVES OUR LIVES IN FEAR
UNTIL WE FINALLY PASS AWAY?
BUT WE DON’T ADMIT WE’RE DREAMING
EXCEPT WHEN WE’RE ASLEEP.
AS ALL THE WHILE WE ARE SCHEMING,
TO HAVE WHAT WE CANNOT KEEP.
YES, THEY SAY THAT DREAMS COME TRUE,
BUT WE KNOW THEY ARE NOT REAL,
OUR SUBCONCIOUS LETTING LOOSE,
OF THE THINGS WE ONLY FEEL.
AND THE NIGHTTIME SUITS MY MOOD,
BECAUSE THE DAYTIME’S JUST TOO BRIGHT.
IT’S SO HARD TO CATCH YOUR DREAMS,
WHEN YOUR EYES ARE FULL OF LIGHT.
AND I JUST CAN’T FIND MY WAY,
MUCH LESS HARDLY TRY TO RUN,
IN THE DIRECTION OF MY DREAMS
WHILE I’M STARING AT THE SUN!
SO, OF COURSE, I PULL THE SHADES,
ON THE WINDOWS OF MY MIND,
IN THE DARK I’M ALWAYS RUNNING
AFTER THINGS I CANNOT FIND.
IF I HAD TO LOOK UPON MY DREAMS,
IN THE BRIGHT LIGHT OF THE DAY,
I FEAR I WOULD NOT SEE THEM
AND ALL MY HOPE WOULD FADE AWAY.
SO I SAVE MY DREAMS FOR NIGHTTIME,
WHEN THE DARKNESS MAKES IT COOL.
BECAUSE TO KNOW THAT I AM DREAMING
IS TO KNOW THAT I’M A FOOL!
