"Just a Dream" as written by Nowell Rhys Fulber, Margaret Far and Wilhelm Anton Leeb....
Walking barefoot on the shore
Hypnotized by the ocean roaring
Thoughts of you drifting in and out
Never fails to calm me down

I still see your eyes when light hits the water
And I've never seen a color so beautiful
So blue, ocean blue

I keep moving to the distant sounds
And visions of you drifting in and out
Clouds mixing with the sand and the sea
Sounds get carried on the ocean breeze

I still hear your voice from across the horizon
And wasn't that you walking into the shadows?

In time I'll believe it was just an illusion
In time I'll believe it was only a dream

I still see your eyes when light hits the water
And I've never seen a color so beautiful
I still hear your voice from across the horizon
And wasn't that you walking into the shadows?

In time I'll believe it was just an illusion
In time I'll believe it was only a dream

'Til then I will breathe you in from the ocean
And walk with the waves rolling under my feet

    General CommentThis song features the angelic voice of Margaret Far and is my favorite Delerium song to date. It seems simple at first: walking along the beach and thinking about that special someone. Yet I'm tempted to believe it has a much deeper, sadder meaning... perhaps the person she's singing about is no longer with us? Or maybe it's a metaphor for lost dreams... whatever the case, it's beautiful.

    General Comment[aside note: I know this song under the name "Illusion." anyone know which is the real title?]

    this song is about the loss of a loved one, whether it be to death or a breakup. it captures perfectly the sharply painful sensation of loving and missing someone so much that everything makes you think of them.
