When I Dream

It’s true that I live in a dream world; 

It’s where I prefer to be 

After all the pain I’ve suffered– 

The cruel reality– 

I need to look for beauty

I find it when I dream. 


It’s true that I’m wrapped in a daydream 

That fills the night for me, 

That eraces the fear and lonliness

And love is all I see– 

The love the world denies me– 

I find it when I dream


When I dream I believe in someday; 

A hero whispers to me, 

“You know I’ve always loved you

“I’m coming. So wait for me.” 

And then he’s in my mind with me. 

I have him when I dream.
