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!
