lyrics

LET THE DREAM DIE
I'm here but really I'm away
building castles in the desert
I'm saving my water for after I've built this tower

The messages that come from space
have been darkening the weather
and I think of previous years around this hour

So don't go thinking like you always have
The mysteries and whisperings won't reveal themselves

I'd warn you to stay away
but the moment's almost over
so breathe in the day, press palms, and start to pray

It's escape I'm talking about
You know everybody's been there
A lover's arms or another time and place

So don't go thinking like you always have
Let go of all the good and bad
The mysteries and whisperings won't reveal themselves

Cuz now isn't something you want to live through
You're never gonna reach what you try to get to
You think of what you want and you've gotta sigh
You're better off just letting the dream die
