I craved a dream and you were there
My life a blur you did not care
Forgot your pain, in my defense
Your reasoning did not make sense
At the ceiling I lay and stare.

Yes, many times life isn’t fair 
For you, my love, showed much despair
You died from pains desired expense
I craved a dream

The fear you craved beyond repair
Nothing to your soul does compare
Now angel dust you do dispense
Love’s pain and sorrow does condense
Sister connection in the air
I craved a dream
