Dreams

I raise my voice to soothe the silence
And the pain my walls enfold
Since you’re gone my days are empty
And my nights are freezing cold

You are out of reach
Stay where I can’t enter
And I hear your voice
I feel your touch
But it is only when I’m dreaming

I search your clothes ‘most every evening
For your sweet familiar scent
See your shadow at the doorstep
Expect you back my pain to end

Well aware my love
You are never returning
And I hear your voice
I feel your touch
But it is only when I’m dreaming

I’m dreaming of you
I’m dreaming of you
Night after night I’m dreaming of you
I dream of you, of you

And when attention slacks
And people cease to call
Your memories become a nuisance
You talk of everyday illusions
About your work, what’s on tv

And so my life returns to normal
Well adapted I fit in
But everything inside feels hollow
And nothing’s like it’s always been

No one fills your place
Can reach so deep inside me
And I hear your voice
I feel your touch
But it is only when I’m dreaming
