Don't Wake Me

My dreams are better than reality
Don't wake me
Turn away from your morality
Leave my body be

For me there was no hope
Don't wake me
I just couldn't cope
The light I finally see

Maybe I'm with a god
Maybe I'm in a hell
Maybe I was a fraud
I'll never tell

Dry those tears
Don't wake me
I've had me years
Say good-bye to the lifeless me

I don't know where I'm going
Don't wake me
My blood has stopped flowing
Bury me under an oak tree

    Dreams are better than reality if you are unemployed and you are working in your dreams. This is a decent write.
