"The Dream" as written by and Rufus Wainwright....
The dream has come and gone
The earth lumbers on
The dream is back in space
Back where it came from

The dream has gone away
The earth could not play
The earth just spins in place
Throwing things away

And I am left behind
Corrupted crushed and blind
All for a dream
That in truth was never really mine

But who was the dream?
Was it you or was it me?
I truly love which is harder to do
Than to dream of

Don't get me wrong
I wanted to go
I wanted to see
I wanted to know

No, don't get me wrong
I wanted to go
I wanted to see
I wanted to know

I wanted to dream
I just didn't know
How hard it would be
When the dream had to go

When the dream but
Who was the dream?
Was it you or was it me?
Who was the dream?

Was it you or was it me?
I truly loved which is harder to do
Yes, it's harder to do
Yes, it's harder, harder, harder to do
Than to dream of

The dream has come and gone
