It was so long ago,
yet could be yesterday
Displaced and left behind
Now a stranger to those I knew
How fragile this human frame
Time taunts me with memoryʼs remains

Can I cast aside the past
and be free from the stains?
Markers of regretful mistakes
I know everything was changed
From the moment you walked away
Your true self, now displayed

These weary eyes have seen too much
So many things not meant to be
These weary eyes have seen enough
Just close your mind and sleep

Go into the dream, imagine a world of peace

What brought me to this place?
Exhaustion comes in waves
Erodes the innocence that remains
As I climb this hill at night
Look down on Vancouverʼs lights
The shadows pull me back to another life

On a crowded street, I saw you look at me,
then quickly turn away
And I knew nothing had changed
The memories still remained
and cannot be undone, oh no
Does nothing change? Does nothing change?

These weary eyes have seen too much
So many things not meant to be
These weary eyes have seen enough
Just close your mind and sleep

Go into the dream, imagine a world of peace

Winter greets me with falling snow
I embrace the cold with failing hope
Life now seems so fleeting and strange
In time even memories will fade
