Revive a sense of hope
Amidst these abandoned dreams
Rewrite what it is to feel
In hopes it will carry me home

Drift in and out
The light of morning drags me back
I need release
Separate this body from my mind

Send me home

My conscience there to send me off to sleep
When I need you closer
For when I wake I am greeted by shades of gray
I'll return to you

In dreams, the sun sets in our eyes
In dreams, we'll never be apart
In dreams, I'll promise you'll never be alone
How much I wish your voice could send me home

    General Commentthe speaker uses sleep as a medium in which to see someone in which he needs desperately, the song is summed up well in the last stanza which describes the speaker's relationship with this person in his dreams

    General CommentTrue all the same.Metaphorically(using sleep) describes how he longs to be with his loved ones when he himself is far away.He finds sleep, as the only state of mind when he is with them.Clearly the meaning is in sound with the song title that is 'ebb and flow'.This constant perpetuity between reality and dreams is killing him.***peace***
