I dreamed a dream, within a dream.

No diamond rings, no pretty things.

These evil things, what do they mean to me.

Night terrors they call dreams, nightmares it seems.

I’ll take a drink, no pills for me.

But still I see how clearly it can be.

To walk trapped inside of despair.

Worse still, loop it, a hell of a reel.

I think it, thought it, let it pass.

I write it, wrote it, let it past.

and that’s the life I live inside to be.

No sleep, I don’t want to sleep. We’ll see.

  1. Your intimate knowledge of such a wide array of song lyrics is impressive in and of itself….
    But this entirely new creation that was the result of your endeavor is well, lovely, to be honest.
    I’m about to go read some more.
