Dawn is a feeling,
A beautiful ceiling.
The smell of grass
Just makes you pass
Into a dream.
You're here today,
No future fears,
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to.

You look around you,
Things they astound you
So breathe in deep,
You're not asleep,
Open your mind.

You're here today,
No future fears,
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to.

Do you understand
That all over this land
There's a feeling?
In minds far and near
Things are becoming clear
With a meaning.

Now that you're knowing
Pleasure starts flowing.
It's true life flies
Faster than eyes
Could ever see.

You're here today.
No future fears.
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to.

    My Interpretation'Dawn Is A Feeling' could be about childhood. Days of Future Passed is a concept album and each song reflects on a different moment in a person's lifetime. Dawn is the beginning, in this case, childhood.

    "You look around you,
    Things they astound you
    So breathe in deep,
    You're not asleep,
    Open your mind.

    You're here today,
    No future fears,
    This day will last
    A thousand years
    If you want it to."

    Children's days seem longer than that of adults. They have more time to explore, learn and play. Each day can last "a thousand years".

    The lyrics might also double as a metaphor for mindfulness and taking the time to appreciate what you have.

    Deep stuff and way ahead of its time.
