"In Dreams" as written by Mercedes Lander and Morgan Lee Lander....
Every time I speak
Wipe away all these tears
Living every day in fear
Finding nothing but empty

Wide awake
And dreaming
Is this what it seems
Close my eyes forever
I'll wake up

Desperation strips me
These last days have not
Been free
Stealing every breath
From me
Whispering defeat

And I see it in your eyes
Long gone
And I feel it in your heart
Long gone
And I see it in your eyes
Long gone, long gone

    General CommentMorgan's vocals in this song haunts me, they're so eery and yet feminine at the same time, if that makes sense...anyway in my mind I see this as a person who has been in a very painful break-up, maybe to the point where she feels like dying for him:

    "Every time I speak
    Wipe away these tears"
    Obviously, whenever they talk to each other she starts crying cos she misses him

    "Living every day in fear
    Finding nothing but empty"
    She's scared of what the world will be like without him, and she realizes that inside she's just empty without his love

    "Wide awake and dreaming
    Is this what is seems?
    Close my eyes forever
    I'll wake up"
    She's awake and she doesn't want to believe what is happening, and my 'closing her eyes forever' she would die and she believes she will wake up again (in heaven) to be with him

    "Desperation strips me
    These last days have not been free"
    She is desperate to find him again, and she hasn't been able to be herself cos he is always on her mind

    "Stealing every breath from me
    Whispering defeat"
    She feels helpless cos the thought of him and how they were leaves her breathless, like he still has control over her

    "And I see it in your eyes
    Long gone
    And I feel it in your heart
    Long gone"
    She doesn't feel or see love in him anymore

    General Commenti think this song is about a girl. who loves this boy so much. and he break up with her and she don't kmnow wat to do. and she sleep at night and then the image of him with a neither girl schock her then she wake up. she still in love with this guy. that she don;t know wat to do. she then start to think that she nothing and a nobody. but then before she kill her self she wat to take one more look at him. she see him. and then find out that he has been dump by the girl. then he come to her then ask her forgiven and she like FUCK YOU GET OUT FUCKING FACE. then she know that he is not worth kill herself. she keep her self a love

    General CommentHeehe... this song is my ringtone...
    and tis also so emo...

    it dosnt seem as trivial as being about some split up relationship... I would have said it was deeper than that...

    General CommentIt is about feeling empty. Life has no meaning so the only hope to feel alive is wait till death and wake up to real life, where we can start over again
