My mind’s eye sets them free
When daylight comes, they cease to be
I know their faces but the names won’t come
Their lips are moving but forever they’ll be dumb
They are lost and can’t be found
They can’t make a sound
These dream people come to life
Hurry, hurry, turn on the light
Cities filled inside my head
Hanging by a single thread
They don’t know when I awake
Their tether to this world will break
You and I are alike
We’ve been living behind closed eyes
No matter what dreams may come
We’re forever lost to the rising sun
Dare I dream after daylight?
Dare I dream?
