It all kind of makes sense now,
Why I had that dream when I did…
You had just come back to town,
The last time before you head off to basic,
And for some reason you wanted to stay with me.
We watched a movie that night,
Just the two of us,
And you nuzzled up and fell asleep in my arms.
The funny thing is, I fell asleep, too.
Both of us asleep in the other's arms…
And then I woke up.
I didn't understand that morning
Why I dreamt it. Why my subconscious would even
Dare to let that dream cross into my memory.
But now I know.
You won't be coming back.
I won't get to see you before you travel
Even farther away from me.
In all reality, we may never see each other again.
Somehow my mind knew all this in advance,
So it whipped up one last fantasy.
You, in my arms, as we were meant to be.
But now, we'll never have the chance.
