Endless hours but they're still slipping away
I'll wake up tomorrow to another lonely day
I know you're a part of me deep within
With a blurred boundary of where I end and you begin
But here I am, listening to the pitter patter of the rain
Lying in my bed all alone, reminiscing bygone days again
I close my eyes and see blurry flashes of a once glorious past
In my mundane present, time seems to move too darned fast
Before I can come to grips with what isn't and what is
I'm back to the grind of another day, still searching for that which stays amiss
It'll be another 3 days before your smile can brighten even my darkest clouds
But until then, I'm all by myself still stumbling through self doubts
I guess that's what marriage is supposed to do
Have your better half beside, so on nights like this, they can cuddle you
I fall asleep slowly, my vision blurring while my dreams get clearer
And with every slower blink, you seem to get ever nearer
I guess some day, a year and a half down the line
I'll be lying here, holding you in these arms of mine
My eyes have finally given up and I slip slowly to my wonderful land of crazy dreams
And I come to sit beside you with our toes twinkling in the clear cool waters of the stream...
Started with dreams of being a millionaire
Now you're stuck in a rut and aint really going anywhere
You thought you could just wing it out
You'd make your own destiny, of that you never really had a doubt
And you took on each day as it came
Told yourself in the mornings that things won't always be the same
So you hurtled along without any real plan
And as it turns out, now you're a different man
Some dreams have worked out, some dreams not
And you're decidedly undecided about what you've got
Now when you look back at what's been your life
You realise its not what you had in mind when you were twenty five...
You make me think, I'm more than who I am
If I saw myself through your eyes, I'd think I was a better man
When I tell you I'm lucky, you tell me that's not true
But I am and I'd be lost, if I didn't have you...
Would you take a walk on the beach
To calm the demons inside
Hail a cab when all's asleep
At 3 am, in what's neither dawn nor night?

Would you spend an hour with the sea breeze
To ruffle through the cobwebs in your head
Sit with yourself for company
When all else is tucked away in bed?

Would you watch the waves break
And drown yourself in their erratic screams
Till they finally make sense
When all else cozily dreams?

As poetic as that does sound
I'm sure you're too darned sensible to try
And prefer being tucked away in your cozy dreams
Just as at this moment, do I!
