Lifting Shadows Off a Dream

By Heart

He seems alone and silent, thoughts remain without an answer
Afraid and uninvited, he slowly drifts away
Moved by desire and fear, Breaking delicate wings
Lifting shadows off a Dream once broken
She can turn a drop of water Into an ocean
As the rain is pouring down, Tears of sorrow wash his mind
Drifting with the current
This stream of life flows on
He seems alone and silent waiting on his hands and knees
The chill of winter's darkness sits quietly
Moved by desire and fear he takes a few steps away
Lifting shadows off a Dream once broken
She can turn a drop of water Into an ocean
And she listens openly
He pours his soul into the water
reflecting the mystery
She carries him away and the winds die slowly
And she listens openly
And she listens openly
Lifting shadows off a Dream once broken
She can turn a drop of water Into an ocean
Lifting Shadows off a Dream
Lifting Shadows off a Dream

I used to listen to this song and it made me want to tell my ex everything.  She made it better just by listening to my fears, my dreams and her absence has made this song that much harder to listen to.  There was a time when I thought I would never find someone and then she walked into the room literally!  She was the person I was searching for in this song since it predated our knowing one another.  Now I only think about how much I miss her advice, her touch and most importantly her presence.


Skip the first minute, just babble from concert last March!
