Illusion

lyrics

Two dogs lay beside each other
Falling into a deep sleep
And as their bodies start to twitch
I hope their dreams they can keep
I imagine they are together
Chasing the horizon to catch the sun
No one can separate them now
Two dreamers melded into one
But is it too much to ask
For us to have the same
That when I finally lay to rest
I'd simply call your name
You would hear my familiar voice
And then you would appear
It just feels like it's been so long
Since I have had you here

All the time I had
I didn't spend enough with you
And now that you've gone away
I wonder what I am to do
My time with you has become
So very limited it seems
I only see you in the night
When you hide inside my dreams

Some nights I drink too much
And you may cross my mind
Some nights I don't drink enough
Just appreciating the time
Would it mean anything to you
If I set myself on fire
Just to be the light in your life
I would always push higher
Now that you are gone
I would give so much up today
Just to hear your footsteps
One more time walking away
But if we were to talk again
Promise you'll look in my eyes
I'm sorry to tell you but
My face only tells lies

All the time I had
I didn't spend enough with you
And now that you've gone away
I wonder what I am to do
My time with you has become
So very limited it seems
I only see you in the night
When you hide inside my dreams

I feel the pain of your absence
I have a wounded soul
And ever since you left
I've been trying to feel whole
You have made such a difference
In my life and in my heart
I wish I noticed it earlier
I wish I had known from the start
When I dream it'll be of you
And I'll write down the times
That we meet inside my head
So I can visit them sometime
You can live in my dream journal
Though I know it's not the best
This is just the only way I can
Finally let you rest

So until we meet again
Someday when the world doesn't spin
Oh when we meet again
Well, we will never meet again
