"The Dream (i.e. Crumpled Failures)" as written by Billy Lee Smiley, Mike Johnson and Randy Matthews....
I never made the dream
Was just too far out of reach
And though I want it still
Not sure it ever will

God how I miss you
Another seven weeks until
I called you on the phone
But you weren't at home

Pulling out your photograph
So many things
I wish I'd said

I passed through my home town
One of the few that made it out
Nothing has changed
It stayed the same

I ran into an ex-friend
We never had made amends
And after all these years
Things still are weird

There wasn't much - much to say
Friendships often fade away

Been trying to write
This letter to you
Disjointed thoughts
Just can't seem to
Get them to display back
What I want them to
Crumpled failures
Litter the room

    General Comment"I ran into an ex-friend. We never had made amends and after all these years things still are weird." I can really relate to that part. I can really relate to the whole song. I ran to into a ex-friend from high school and it was really weird. This friend looked like she was going to cry when we were talking.
