Dream Stealer

 

castle 3

I built a castle out of dreams,

And I flew on gilded wings,

I soared above the eagles,

Amongst the pretty things,

I wove a trail of rainbows,

Amid the candied cloud,

And floated on the sunshine,

When e’er the breeze allowed,

*

 I watched the castle crumble,

And I saw the eagles fall,

I felt the earth beneath me,

And I heard the thunder call,

I couldn’t stem the hourglass,

Nor could I catch the time,

I couldn’t keep on dreaming,

When the morn began to climb.

Can You?

Can you catch me a wish,

A look or a smile,

Capture a teardrop,

And hold it a while,

*

Can you bring me a feeling,

Wrapped up in lace,

An imprisoned assurance,

That I can embrace,

*

Can you grasp me a thought,

Like a want or a need,

And steal me a wonder,

To grow from a seed,

*

Can you show me the promise,

In a trust and a hope,

And rescue them for me,

These dreams they evoke.

I Am There

In your dreams I am there,

Through the dark lonely night,

In the secrets you bury,

And the battles you fight,

I’m the shadow behind you,

And the breath on your face,

I’m the darkness you’ve hidden,

And the fear you can’t face,

*

In your dreams I am there,

Through the dark lonely night,

In the steps never taken,

And the tears never cried,

I’m the want that you stifle,

And the need you ignore,

I‘m your death and survival,

Both your poison and cure,

*

In your dreams I am there,

Through the dark lonely night,

In the fire and the brimstone,

 And the corruption of right,

I’m the pain and the suffering,

The ecstasy and high,

I’m your drug of addiction,

But you can’t tell me why.
