Dreamer


I have always been a dreamer
And I dream to escape all I know
Cause in this hard & cold world
Only in my dreams my emotions do I dare show

From the moment I close my eyes
This world gently fades away
And when I open them again
I find myself in the place I wish to stay

For in my dreams I am happy
In my dreams my mind is free
In this world that I created
I can finally be me

But though I am happy
I know that this place is not real
And once I awake from my paradise
I must hide again the emotions I feel

I am a hopeless dreamer
In a world of cruel, hard facts
And this world will continue to crush me
Until my mind finally cracks

But in that moment I will not tremble
Nor will I be sad or afraid
Cause I know in that instant
That all the debt collected will be paid

I will live forever in my world of dreams
At last I will have my peace
And in a world created from my longing
In this place my pain will cease
