"I Used To Dream" as written by Jamie Sutherland, Ian Turnbell, Arne Kolb, David Smith, Andrew Keeney, David Fothergill and Rory Sutherland....
You picked me up in the morning light
With a heavy head and sallow eyes
A ball of flesh and heavy bone
Known better days are kind of sore

I used to dream of leaving here
Now I just sleep away the fear
Nothing much ever came from me
A sack of empty promises

And if all these selfish thoughts
Would please just stop

Sometimes do you wish you could watch it burn?
The life you've built and the things you own
And I dreamt of her again last night
And how I could put the past to right

And if all these selfish thoughts
Would all just stop
And leave a little room for
Someone else
When all that it would help
To fall behind

I used to dream of leaving here
But the roots that bind were mine to grow

    General CommentWhat a beautiful song about finding yourself and losing yourself, and also, maybe, about settling for your familiar surroundings.
