"I Have Lost My Dreams" as written by and Dar Williams....
Stopped pretending.
Happy ending.
Everything I ever wanted stands in front of me.

I have lost my dreams.
I have lost my dreams.

Now they say I told the truth.
Life beyond the burden of proof:
Paper thin blue skies and windless fields.

I have lost my dreams.
I have lost my dreams.

Traffic crawling,
Life is moving,
Up through stately trees into their green leaves.

Find a new dream.
Find a new dream.
I have lost my dreams.
I have lost my dreams.

    General CommentThe saddest happy song out there. She's singing about how she's gotten everything she's ever wanted, those things we place before us as goals to mark our happiness. This is the point where the lovers kiss and the movie ends, but her life isn't over.

    So, now what? What's next? What's left to do? Dreams are what keep us going and she has none of them left.

    The line "everything I ever wanted stands in front of me" makes me picture her singing this song while walking down the aisle at her wedding. It's an odd juxtaposition reminding us that those happy moments where we achieve our dreams are also the moments that we are done dreaming them.
