My dream is just around the corner Out of sight and still out of reach Everyday my feet get heavier It drags when I want to sprint My once feather stuffed heart Now filled with lead that aches of loneliness My dream doesn’t rest easily on my pillow any more It sits heavily on my shoulder Loosely around my neck For the attention of the world Who paused to admire and criticise To some it lay beautifully clearly meant for me To others, many others its ill-ly fit and to be left behind But I cannot shed my dream I cannot leave it behind on dented pillow Where fantasy dreams burns away with the morning light So it rolls with me out of bed In to the world to play hide and seek Hiding just around the corner My dream waits patiently to be found Each day I seek less Each day my spirit flutters less The prospect of finding my dream, a diming light Time passes by faster nowadays Like death collect souls, time collect dreams Each day time whisper to me, let me collect your dream Let me stack it among the broken and forgotten dreams Each day its whisper grow louder and still louder So much so that when reality comes knocking Or someone talks to me They find me vacant and deaf As I distant myself from time Deafen my ears to its scream In the bid to keep my dream a life So my dream stays just around the corner Out of sight and out of reach Most days my feet are heavier It drags when I want to sprint But today my youthful heart beats Feather light I chase, reaching for my dreams
