And the Dreams...They Fade

Speak, but let the words slide
Down your cheeks and onto me
Breaking silence and moving gradually
Stepping stones to the future and opportunity

CHORUS
And my dreams are fading,
Obscure in the ominous clouds of reality
I'm waiting out the storms,
While watching innocent hearts fall around me
So, close your eyes and take me in your arms
And bring me back slowly down

Do you remember a time
When we thought that our lives were
Anything but a poorly-directed sitcom?
And now what do we have to show
For 12 months lived in the misty shadows?
Only a sad cast of melancholy and despair
You and me...nothing less and nothing moreā€¦

CHORUS
And my dreams are fading,
Obscure in the ominous clouds of reality
I'm waiting out the storms,
While watching innocent hearts fall around me
So, close your eyes and take me in your arms
And bring me back slowly down

Speak, but let the words slide
Into my head from the look in your eyes
Breaking up and going fast
Looking onward while we forget the past

And speak, again
Softly, gently
Tell me what we need to forget
Shallow words of our regret

CHORUS
And my dreams are fading,
Obscure in the ominous clouds of reality
I'm waiting out the storms,
While watching innocent hearts fall around me
So, close your eyes and take me in your arms
And bring me back slowly down
