A Dream Within A Dream Lyrics

9. A Dream Within A Dream
This is a dream that we share
A ball full of thoughts in our minds
The night is young, the game is on
And all else falls way behind

It’s so real, this dreamy invention
It’s never been like this, been like this
The world is twisted around
And we can’t control this creation
But it’s never been like this, been like this
Been like this, been like this, been like this…

This is a dream going on
Where we can decide what we are and where
We may dissolve the ground if we fall
And the dream might turn into a nightmare

Maybe we grew tired of living on
this narrow path that we walked upon
And maybe we could build it somewhere
A new world made of dreamers

It’s so real, this dreamy invention
We know but reality’s outdone by far
Now we can be who we are
Though we can’t control this creation
It’s never been like this, been like this
Been like this, been like this, been like this…

There’s a magical current
of belief in the air
as we let ourselves in
But when we open our eyelids
and step into the dream,
a kind of vision presents itself

A man with lonely eyes
Glazed from all they’ve seen
Worn down from forced goodbyes
So many has-beens

Something’s taken hold of my feelings
Something’s taken hold of my soul
I try to crack a hole in the ceiling
But it grows out of hand
I’m losing my self-control

Why would you leave me?
And why would you give up the world we created?
I thought we could make it
and now utopia is gone

King of the promised land
Abundance of luxury
With powers to make a stand
So handsome I’ll be!

This is everything that I dreamed of
This is how my life should have been
But hidden in the back of this dreamstuff
A notion so grim: something is missing

Why would you leave me?
And why would you give up the world we created?
I thought we could make it
Now I’ve been abandoned
And why, after all we’ve been through?
Utopia was you

All the fires in side me
keep on burning my tears
when they should have been shed
In the midst of a breakdown,
I’m disturbingly calm
Am I living or dead?

There’s a place I long to see
that resembles home
Where the sky is dressed in blue
and I am citizen unknown
And I wish that you’ll be there
Awaiting my return
To the simple lives we knew
I guess you live and learn

My kingdom finally fell
Crashed by loneliness
The wondrous heaven turned to hell
Less is more con more is less

But it’s a dream within a dream
‘Cause there’s no way back
The sleep and I won’t separate

So here I am standing
One step from landing in time
So I may rectify my crime
Tossed through the layers
Demolishing chaos
The dream is gone

Maybe it’s a dream within a dream
Maybe things are not what they seem
Maybe…
Maybe it’s a dream within a dream
Maybe things are not what they seem
Just maybe…
