Mark your words so well,
I’ll remember before the night is through.
I am not your god,
"He" cannot contain everything you feel.
(And everything you feel is guilty)

And you take,
And you get,
Everything that you find before I can.
(You’ll never go far without another)

And you take,
And you get,
Everything that you find before I catch up.
(I’ll never catch up when you play your games)

In my dreams…

Go into the light,
Everyone is afraid to die.
Shy away from life,
Hide inside the world that you have known.
(And maybe I’ll be there waiting for you)

And you give,
And you get,
Everything that you want if you open your heart.
(I never would’ve let you hurt another)

And you give,
And you get,
What you want if you open your heart to another.
(And never let go - unless you want me to)

In my dreams….
