Alive


Close your eyes
And remember for a moment that you’re
Alive
Well, I live in a world of
Bad dreams
Nightmares, I scream
Tell me, what does it mean

Nightmares I can’t live with
Bad dreams I avoid
But still they come like a
Rushing river and I
Keep cover knowing
I’m alive, oh

Close your eyes
And remember for a moment that you’re
Alive
Well, I live in a world of
Bad dreams
Nightmares, I scream
Tell me, what does it mean

Why is it separated
Like this
Why did you all ever get
Missed
I live in a world of
Bad dreams
And they just keep comin’

Why did the world turn out
Like this,
Why are people always so
Different,
I can’t imagine it
Another way
It’s just what I’m used to

I close my eyes
And remember for a moment that I’m
Alive
But I still live in a world of
Bad dreams
Nightmares, I scream
Tell me, what does it mean

I close my eyes
And remember for a moment that I’m
Alive

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
