Louder Hopes and Softer Dreams

I'm living every dream and nightmare
And you're the only place I know that feels safe
As a friend, or maybe more
My hopes are too loud to decipher
And my dreams are growing ever softer

Rattle my heart and taunt me with the keys to the cage
That only exists because I lost focus and rage
I claimed that all that I wanted was a friend to the end
When really all that I craved was to be locked up again

Douse my mind in gasoline
Old dreams and memories
Will light the fuse
And uncover it all

I knew I was only strong when you were far away
And I hate to be weak, but God, you sound so perfect
And every dream or fear I've had is coming to light
And I don't want to hope so loud

That the devils around begin to listen in
And drive me back to despair after I start to win
I only just learned how to march on my own
And now that you're back, I'm scared to be alone
