There are blue skies in my dreams
And laughter that seems unending
There are green grass fields there
And happiness and hope for tomorrow

My cup is full and my heart
Spills awkward and embarrasing blood
Onto white golden streets
And I am unashamed of the stains my steps leave

Tears stream down my cheeks
Only to meet their redeemer and be wiped away
And there is joy

    i'm sitting here trying to explain to you guys how much this line gets to me everytime... but i just can't find the words...
    mineral just kind of does that to you; leaves you speechless... that's what good lyrics should do

    General CommentNotsleeping, I have to wonder why you say one the few songs that transmits happiness.
    I think most of their songs have a very positive feeling to it.

    General CommentChristopher Simpson could do no wrong when Mineral rocked the planet.
    I cry when I hear this album. Joy and Sorrow all at the same time.
