Dream With Open Eyes

Irish Song Lyrics - Dream With Open EyesAuthor: Donal OShaughnessy
Copyright: 2013

I wrote a song it was new to me
Then heard the words and the melody
Then I knew I’d sung this song before

About a life that I once knew
With many years where dreams came true
Than I awoke and dreams would last no more

Then I prayed for sleep to come
another dream to be the one
to last the hours long past the morning sun

It brightly shone to light the day
it said my dreams could never stay
until that time when light would steal away

Darkness fell and when I closed my eyes
stars and planets dimly lit the skies
wait for sleep to come and I wondered when
....will I ever dream again

Passions flames were slowly doused
smoke was rising through my house
that sound alarms to open every door

Waken now and run away
promises of better days
as billowed clouds try shielding what’s in store

clearing skies of what can be
Friends who came to rescue me
bearing gifts were true and not contrived

blinded by a beauty’s stare
it seemed the dark was always there
teaching me to dream with open eyes

Darkness fell and when I closed my eyes
stars and planets dimly lit the skies
wait for sleep to come and I knew right then
.... I can always ever dream again
