I am a dreamer, that's how I put it I don't care whether you understand I look at the clouds, picturing faces in my mind I watch the rain, the storm clouds roll by I watch the leaves swaying in the breeze While I'm sitting near the window pane I watch the faint sunlight sink to its rest I see the eagles flying around in circles I see the crowded buildings spoiling this beautiful place As my mind is forced back from these thoughts I'm aware of the girls talking in the dorm As I listen to the song "Echo" playing continuously I'm reminded that I'm running away to a better world Where illusion is beautiful than reality.
