In the middle of the night

Through the desert of truth 
To the river so deep

We all start in the streams 
We're all carried along 
By the river of dreams

Seemed so real to me

I dream of gardens in the desert sand 
I wake in pain 
I dream of love as time runs through my hand


I want to drive, want to fly like I do in the dreams I've never really been in.

they haunt me like a curse  
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true

That never would come to me 
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
