Lyrics

This is not a dream
I said
Of destiny and charm

I dreamt of you
Even while I slept
Beneath your arms

And I know I’ve
Seen you before
Maybe in a painting

Your ocean eyes I’ve loved
In colored oils
Of timeless waiting

I’ll fight the Hounds that prey on romance
And hunt the spirit
I’ve been searchin’ for sleep
With you an instant

The dogs will bite and tear away
At dreams we were not dreamin’
I can’t be scared and sell my share
Not yet you’ve left me screamin’

And because

When you’re forehead touches mine
I crawl behind
Your perfect eyes

And your smile elicits
Tears that there’d be
Could I cry

Don’t think
Just feel

The way your head fits my cradle
I ask what is real

Is it fear?
Mixed emotions?
Caused by life’s external notions

Or how you sleep
In perfect peace
When lulled by matching motions?

I’ll fight the Hounds that prey on romance
And hunt the spirit
I’ve been searchin’ for sleep
With you an instant

The dogs will bite and tear away
At dreams we were not dreamin’
I can’t be scared and sell my share
Not yet you’ve left me screamin’

No promise
No oaths
No vow
No plans
To be here or there
Oh, but here or there…

I’ll fight the Hounds that prey on romance
And hunt the spirit
I’ve been searchin’ for sleep
With you an instant

The dogs will bite and tear away
At dreams we were not dreamin’
I can’t be scared and sell my share
Not yet you’ve left me screamin’

You left me screamin’
You left me screamin’
You left me screamin’
