after i have gone to my bed
and cried my silent tears
i dream of a world
a world where we can be free
a world where we are who we can be
and who we can't
a world where wishes come true
cause you...
you were the one that
made them real
i dream of a world
a world that's
a better place
a place where you can
talk to the birds
and fly among the trees
i dream of a place
a place where fantasy
meets reality
and it all seems so real
that now...
now reality doesn't exist
and then..
then i wake up
to realize it...
it was only a dream...
a dream where wishes are true
and possiblities are vast
it was a dream
of miracles and blissfulness
and... and
it was a dream of a better place
where dreams can finally...
finally be true
and no longer trapped
inside us...
us and our minds
a dream where we are free from...
from judgement
and i...
i from myself
