When your dream comes creepin’
Into your heart
No matter how outlandish
In all its fancies awakened,
Then it’s time to sing your wish
No matter the darkness
Of memories it may harness.
It’s time to dream no more
For you know the sun is heartless
And few will care for fear,
So gather your spirit on shore
Before you set foot into the wilderness
And bid farewell to comfort dear.
