Life Is But A Dream

Life, is but a dream

The bird sits on the window ledge and he’s preaching to the world
A hundred bad dreams that have turned into one lonely scream
A thousand bad memories of one homeless guy
Who clapped his hands at winter
and found he’d made the sky  cry
He watched the tears roll down the hillside
And fermented in the lake
And watched as it woke the ice maiden wide awake

And watched her Looking for heartache in the back rooms of her dreams
trying to hear the bird preach the truth beyond the screams
Trying to stop the sky from crying and drowning her in her sleep
And realizing life is but a dream

There was wine left in the bottle and there’s plenty of stories to be told
It’s not over till the fat lady sings and youth starts believing its old
The dogs howl out in the distance
As the coal black night hides the scene 
trying hard to make everyone feel like their not really missing a thing

Now she’s  Looking for heartache in the back rooms of her dreams
trying to hear the bird preach the truth beyond the screams
Trying to stop the sky from crying and drowning her in her sleep
And realizing life is but a dream

the silence of the owl taking life away from the vole
Fills the empty void with a darkness to a story seldom told
The moon it weeps at the injustice
the trees washes its branches in the tears
It a sad old world we live in that is so full of fear

She’s still Looking for heartache in the back rooms of her dreams
trying to hear the bird preach the truth beyond the screams
Trying to stop the sky from crying and drowning her in her sleep
And realizing life is but a dream
