lyrics

and in time you may realize that it’s not quite what you thought it would be
but you’ll light your candles anyway, ‘cause you know without them you can’t see
and you’ll mount them all over the walls and you’ll scatter them across the floor
‘til every inch is all taken up and you can barely move around anymore

but you know this is not your life, no, it’s just a dream
so you’ll whisper into the breeze
secrets you’re saving for all of the trees
you know this is not your life, no, it’s just a dream
but you’re too scared to wake up and see
what’s on the other side of things

and in time you may lose your sight as you get older and you’ll go blind
and you’ll keep your arms spread far apart and you search your way through the dark
‘til you might regret being alone and you’ll eventually turn into stone
and children will gather around you to see the still life that you’ve come to be

but you know this is not your life, no, it’s just a dream
so you’ll whisper into the breeze
secrets you’re saving for all of the trees
you know this is not your life, no, it’s just a dream
but you’re too scared to wake up and see
what’s on the other side of things

and in time you may realize that it’s not quite what you thought it would be
but you’ll keep lighting your candles anyway, ‘cause you know without them you can’t see
and you’ll mount them all over the walls and you’ll scatter them across the floor
‘til every inch is all taken up and you can barely move around anymore

but you know this is not your life, no, it’s just a dream
so you’ll whisper into the breeze
secrets you’re saving for all of the trees
you know this is not your life, no, it’s just a dream
but you’re too scared to wake up and see
what’s on the other side of things
