lyrics

Dreams Elope

I am just passing though for a moment.
I hope you don’t mind,
But I’m tired, and I’m checking you out.
The place I thought my soul,
Has been shaken, I was mistaken.
Now I look out the window,
On the horizon, of possibilities.

Things work themselves out,
If you nurture and feed them.
And pull yourself close,
So it’s your breath, that I breathe in.

I lay in bed at night, and I’m thinking, I’m just thinking,
About the things in life that bring love to me.
And I feel drunk but I’ve not been drinking.
Thoughts turn to clouds,
And I smile as I fall asleep.

Things work themselves out,
If you nurture and feed them.
And pull yourself close,
So it’s your breath that I breathe in.

And there’ve been things in my life,
I wished were different, so different.
A puzzle of pieces,
And many questions within it.
Now I wouldn’t change one thing,
It’s all been made so clear to me:
All those experiences, made the best of me,
And I’ll fly on a melody,
Dreams elope in front of me,
Take my wing now and you can see,
That the future is anything...

Wake up, stretch out, and shake the cobwebs,
It’s time to move to the next city.
And I am just passing though for a moment.
I hope you don’t mind,
But I’m tired, and I’m checking you out.
