"Somebody Else's Dream" as written by and Tony Banks....
Too good to last, how those four words ring in my ears.
A voice from the past has been heard again,
Whether its real or not, I can't say I care
But my memory's going and my mind is losing it's grip.
I'm walking on thinning ice.
Soon I shall be taken down, drowned in blind ignorance.
It's hard to bear but harder still
To tell the one I care for,

Please to say love is here today, but it's going away, going away.
How can I fight a fire that comes from inside myself
That threatens a total end.
So much to lose when I still had so much to learn.
Its hard to bear but harder still
To tell the one I care for.

Please to say love is here today, but it's going away, going away.
Millions of people won't know what I mean,
None can appreciate somebody else's dream.
Thousands of reasons for staying alive
Explode into fragments,
Dissolve into nothing.

As I prepare for the oncoming night.
Already I feel a creeping coldness chilling my bones,
Dulling my sight and mind.
Soon there shall be only sand where once water flowed.
Nature dies and is reborn, but I shan't weather this coming storm.
Not for me to die with children around my bed
After a happy life,
Though rain will fall and the sun won't change in its course.

It's hard to bear but harder still
To tell the one I care for,
Please to say love is here today, but it's going away, going away.
Millions of people won't know what I mean,
None can appreciate somebody else's dream.
Thousands of reasons for staying alive
Explode into fragments,
Dissolve into nothing.
As I prepare for the oncoming night.
