In A Dream

In a dream you and I were there
floating in the past somewhere
waiting on the world to turn
everyone’s desire to burn.
What the world has not become
letting go I am someone
who bleeds into every known
thrown away like a stone
given to this moment it seems
everything that matters could be:

in a dream, but never there;
in a dream where you still care,
in a dream you never died,
in a dream where heaven lied.
Yesterday we never cried,
lift me to your reasons why
all we are is gone inside,
all we carry forth must try

to live, even as we die
to give with each lasting sigh;
give the world no reply,
give our fate an alibi.
We are gone but in a dream,
we live on to redeem.
