Years ago I saw the truth and then I
I went to sleep and entered life
I dreamt this dream, I dreamt an endless nightmare, and I
I know it won't just go away

This time it feels so true
I've been here so long
And I didn't think that dreams could ever be forever
Whenever I look at you
I feel I've done something wrong
Be happy to know that my heart is severed

This dream is fading and so am I
If I were to die now would I wake up again?
An icy sweat and burning memories
Anything to leave this prison

And I've been living like this for too long now
It's just the fiction in my mind
The speed of thought is so much faster than the speed of seconds cause I
I've lived these years in just a night

But this time it feels so true
I've been here so long
And I didn't think that dreams could ever be forever
Whenever I look at you
I feel I've done something wrong
Be happy to know that my heart is severed

This dream is fading and so am I
If I were to die now would I wake up again?
An icy sweat and burning memories
Anything to leave this heaven

If I wake up I'll live decently
If I wake up I'll live properly
If I wake up I'll live lovingly
Let me wake up and have another chance

This dream's done fading and so am I
If I start to live now would I get up again?
An icy sweat and burning memories
But I've come to realize that

This dream is better and so am I
If I were to try now would I ever wake up?
An icy sweat and burning memories
But I'll live through it, and move on

I've learned and I'll live decently
I've learned and I'll live properly
I've learned and I'll live lovingly
I always had another chance
