You say our parting is like losing a best friend
What kind of friend are you to never call at all
You say that people keep on changing without you
But that’s not how I thought of you in the fall

Dream October, dream October back to me
Dream October, is that all that it could be
Dream October, see the sun set in your eyes
Dream October, as I say goodbye

Like the glacier at the top of a mountain
With the sun melting what left of the snow
And like the drop carried out to the ocean
It seems some things these days are meant to be let go

Dream October, dream October back to me
Dream October, is that all that it could be
Dream October, see the sunset in your eyes
Dream October, as I say goodbye

Yeah, sometimes I still miss you
Even though, it didn’t work out in the end
Once in a while, I think back to when it all began

Dream October, dream October back to me
Dream October, is that all that it could be
Dream October, see the sunset in your eyes
Dream October, as I say, as I say goodbye

    General Comment"Dream October is another relationship song that I wrote after a breakup and because of the content, we've had some funny things happen to us over the years. It's pretty obvious that we're all Christian guys and we play at a lot of churches, but with some Christian Radio, your statement of beliefs is expected to be forefront in your music. Because of this, when we were starting out, a radio director once told us that he got a lot of criticism for playing this song. While I can understand where these people are coming from and can see why they feel Christian music should contain certain lyrical elements, I think it's also important to look at the overall message in the song. Dream October is about looking back on a failed relationship and wondering how things could go from being so good in October, to completely broken a few months later. Believe it or not, the song is autobiographical and in looking back and trying to figure out what went wrong, I realized I had made a lot of mistakes, particularly when it came to communicating. Because I took the time to look at the situation, I really believe I learned a lot about myself. It's a very big generalization, but when you look at history, whether it's with the church, politics, business, etc. you will find that people make the same mistakes over and over again. While it certainly isn't a blatant Christian message, I do think there's a lot you can get out of this song." - Nathan Piché (Article One)
