(And every night, I lay awake)
(And I find no conclusion)
(And every night, it just stays the same)
(In my dream of an absolution)

'In the nightlight, do you see what you dream?
All your troubles, are they all what they seem?
Look around you, then you may realize
All the preachers, all with their lies.

And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if you'll be together
Only you know if we shall last

In the night light, do you still feel your pain?
For the valor you waited, it never came.
If you were able, would you go change the past,
To mend a faux pas with one last chance?

And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if you'll be together tonight

'Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution
Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

In the nightlight, do you see what you dream?
All your triumph, and all you'll ever be
Look around you, then you may realize
Happiness lies trapped in misery

And who knows what of our future
We can all try to change the past
Only you know if you'll be together tonight

'Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
'Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution
'Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

'Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
'Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution
'Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

And you'll see (and you'll see)
What you'll be (what you'll be)
And you'll see (and you'll see)
All you can be (all you can be)

Oh (oh)

'Cause every night (every night)
And every night (and every night)
And every night (and every night)
I will dream (I will dream)

And you'll see (and you'll see)
(yeah) That this is my dream (all you can be)
And you'll see
Every night (all you can) (oh)
I will always dream (yeah)
'Cause every night (every night)
And every night (and every night)
And every night (and every night)
I will dream (I will dream)

    Song MeaningThe meaning is very simple. Silver still remembers slightly when Blaze used the emeralds to trap Iblis within her, and her dissappearing, despite the events being erased from the timeline. He's saying that he dreams of finding Blaze again, he dreams of finding a way to fix the past mistakes, and that he knows what the future has in store due to his psychic abilities. I have yet to play Sonic '06, but of the cutscenes seen on Youtube, this is what I could come up with for the song meaning (and while we're at it, there's 4 versions of this song out there, with some slight lyrical adjustments)

    General CommentAbout the timeline in that game, its questionable. In the end, he would never have met Sonic or Amy... and who really knows if he met Blaze. (as the "Iblis Trigger" and Iblis itself no longer exists...whether or not the timeline does exist as an alternative is very little since Iblis no longer involved. But still paradoxal non the less.) When Blaze sends herself off to a seperate dimension (where as also notably in the Rush series she was FROM another dimension), its unclear if she did, or didnt, but its possible that version of her had seperated herself from that timeline-- so in that sense, she did--and didnt.

    That aside, the song more or less represents Silver's motives, thoughts, and hopes on creating a better world. He wishes to "change the future", but learns that he has very little power over the past. as Sonic, Eggman, and Mephelis (im not quite sure how his name is spelled... :/ )are all the key pieces of the past's events--especially Eggman. At some point, Eggman must have accomplished Iblis's awakening... at least in silver's future. ) Silver knows of A FUTURE, but he as no idea what will, or can happen.
