I Dream That I Dream

Wake up Dad! Wake up!
That nightmare again, huh?
I’m starting to take this personally
You tryin to get rid of me or something?

I just ran over to Jason’s to give his CD back
C’mon outside, I’ll show you
See? Not a scratch or a dent
Don’t you understand? It never happened…

(Oh yeah, can you drop my suit by the cleaners?
BIG occasion…once in a lifetime you know
Gotta look sharp and stylish
That girl I like might come
Oh I know…I’m kinda dreading it too
but He says they can’t start without me…)

    Dear Tim - Could I be reading too much into this? The phantom limb? Both bring such sadness to the surface (although it's always there). I Dream that I Dream leaves me breathless. So well written and heartbreaking. love you, Kathy
