tonight

 

tonight,  i’m stuck in this dream

and the flame of reality just flickered away.

oh, here i run into an unknown tomorrow!

there i stand,  with a belief , that it’ll be somehow better .

there i’ll wake and swim my soul into pool of a past where i once drowned

*

never seeing my tears through a smile that i plaster on my face

carry on, i do –  until i plant my head in my pillow in an empty bed

the only thing that keeps me awake  is the remembrance of you

and then the image of you appears,  as i hold the pillow a little tighter

in the dark,  im lonely and im sad

*

never did i imagine that the morning would change our lives

i would have held you a little tighter

kissed you good-bye a little longer

damn that day that took you away from me!

never did i imagine that the morning would change our lives

*

tonight, i hold the pillow a little tighter

tonight, i hold the pillow a little tighter

*

tonight,  i’m stuck in this dream

and the flame of reality just blew out.

oh, here i run into an unknown tomorrow!

there i stand,  with a belief , that it’ll be somehow better .

there i’ll wake and swim my soul into pool of a past where i once drowned
