"Dreamers" as written by and Paul Hammer Deidre Muro....
Won’t you come here? You know the way, it’s the one you made.

Built it in the sky, all that’s in your eye now

not the same. Watch it tumble down, falling all around.

Can you stand watching it undo all that’s made of you?



You can stay where you are. I will wake you. I will wake you in the morning.

You can stay where you are, so don’t you worry. Don’t you worry - keep on sleeping.



Now you see: what you thought was yours could never be had.

Take a look around, try to understand that

it’s a game that you’ll never hold onto very long.

Where we are isn’t just a place where everything remains.



You can stay where you are. I will wake you. I will wake you in the morning.

You can stay where you are, so don’t you worry. Don’t you worry - keep on sleeping.

    Song MeaningI absolutely love this song..it's difficult to understand without looking at the lyrics, but it's about being inside of a less-than-satisfying dreaming state. Everything within the alternate reality is falling apart, and the dreamer can only sit back and watch what is becoming of his/her creation.
    Then, a voice of virtue presides and reassures the dreamer that he/she should have no worries. As the song ends, the dreamer comes to appreciate his/her volatile alternate-reality and even come to enjoy its destruction.

    The meaning of this song can be applied to so many different situations, but I relate it most to my experience coming out as a teenager.

    "Won’t you come
    Here you know the way, it’s the one you made
    Built it in the sky, all that’s in your eye now not the same"
    "Can you stand watching it undo all that’s made of you?"

    This "alternate-reality" I had built as a vision of the future for myself to satisfy societal norms was falling apart because I had begun to realize it was never going to happen. I began to feel like a failure, unable to salvage anything left of this vision that so much of my life has depended on.

    "You are safe, watching it tumble down
    Falling all around, around
    Can you stand watching it undo
    Fall instead of you"

    Through all the self-doubt and confusion, I was able to come to the realization that it was OK for this dream to fall apart. It was even for the best, because if it hadn't gone away I would have been the one to lose control.
