I Can't Remember the Dream

I can't remember the dream that I had last night
But I woke with delight and excitement and then when I tried
To remember the dream that I had last night
It was gone, but the feeling I had in the dream stayed on
 
When I'm awake and I look around me
I can faithfully record everything that I see
Most of my memories tend to be sad
So I wish I could remember the dream that I had
 
I can't remember the dream that I had last night
If I could I would write it out, underline the highlights
Of the dream that would now redefine my life
Be a new road map, affirmation and guiding light
 
When I'm awake I note all that I see
And remember it with photographic accuracy
Most of my memories tend to be bad
And I'm sad I can't remember the dream that I had
 
Why can't I remember it when
I can't forget unpleasant thoughts?
I want to push them away
They creep like weeds, like weeds they cover all the flowerbeds
 
I can't remember the dream that I had last night
But the simple fact that my mind could concoct such a thing
As the incredible dream that I had last night
Is a clue to the key to a door to a world like that
 
My daily life doesn't interest me
It's a never-ending litany of pain and ennui
This waking nightmare is driving me mad
And I wish I could remember the dream that I had
 
When I'm awake I note all that I see
And remember it with photographic accuracy
All of my memories make me feel bad
And I'm sad I can't remember the dream that I had
 
Why can't I remember the dream that I had?
Wish I could go live in the dream that I had
 
Thanks!
