Slowly
he looks at his calloused hands
and dreams of something he thought was real and he looks to the ground.
Sunlight is fading fast to the west,
casting lengthening shadows.
Some dreams are gone when the light disappears
to fade with the night.
And where do they go when they leave you alone lost in quite desperation.
He's seen years pass like water beneath him
and slowly drift out to sea.
It's not a lot to ask of this world,
to feel safe,
and maybe he'll find it one day.
But god knows he tries,
but at the end of the day he always seems to say.

"All my dreams have faded away.
Just like memories from yesterday,
all my lines are crossed and erased,
just like all of these lines on my face,
but god knows I try. "

Cause it's not a lot to ask of this world,
to feel safe, and maybe I'll find it one day.
But if god knows I try
then at the end of the day why do I always say.

"All my dreams have faded away.
But god knows I try to see the beauty in everything."

    General Commenti like how the lyrics switch from "he" (as in: a friend of mine) to "i" (as in: aw, who am i kidding anyway?)

    or "he" (as in: seriously, not me, it's really a friend of mine) to "i" (as in: he feels this way, i feel this way, too)

    i know it doesn't make sense. whatever.
