Waking Life

Tell me the dream you never forget
Show me the world through your eyes
Let me walk you to your own bed
Dream the story that never lies

As your eyes are kept so tightly closed
Every word you say seems to have a soul
And yet there are still memories evoked
Which ever so quietly you've never shown

Meanwhile the waking life stands still
Waiting for hopes and meaning and views
On a different perspective it expects to rise
If only to feel a little more alive

Except the alarm clock doesn't ring
But for another dream it sings
Into new ways of saying the same
You find yourself replaying a game

And all that matters is what's inside
The dreams you've meant to realize
Have brought you to this place in time
Where all you do is arrive

inspired by the homonymous film - Waking life (2001) by Richard Linklater
