The Dream of Dreaming
Words & Music by Robert Z. Milla
I cannot move
I cannot speak
My eyes are closed
And yet I can see
I see them mourn
I hear them weep
While I’m alone
Locked up beneath their feet

My feet are stiff
So cramped this box
I want to scream
I want to knock
But I’m so tired
I just want to sleep
And dream the dream of dreaming

No, I don’t want to sleep
I want to live
I want to breathe
I want to give
I want to share all the pain
I want to share all the joy
I want to feel life
I want to laugh and to cry
Want to reveal
The feelings I used to hide
The love I kept locked inside
I’ll show it
Yes, I will try

Now I see myself
Living my life
Walking my path
Through peace and strife
My way to death

Searching for love
Yearning for truth
Trying to win
Learning to lose
Oh I’m so tired
I just want to sleep
And dream the dream of dreaming

I hear my name
There is a light
Someone is calling me
Is it the dreamer’s guide?
I feel I should follow
But still I hesitate
I can’t let go
My life, my fate

Oh let me live
Oh let me breathe
Oh let me give
I want to share all the pain
I want to share all the joy
I want to feel life
I want to laugh and to cry
Want to reveal
The feelings I used to hide
The love I kept locked inside
I’ll show it
Yes, I will try

But I’m so tired
Just want to sleep
Want to forget
The pain and joy
The life I led
So I let myself fall
Fall asleep
To dream the dream of dreaming
