Then and Now

I wake to find my eyes clogged up with sand:

It's the sixth dream I've had of you so far.

My aching feet are frozen where I stand.

()

Those corny Valentine cards should be banned –

I dreamed I'd lit a match and watched them char.

I wake to find my eyes clogged up with sand.

()

The phone is cold and heavy in my hand.

Its silence screams; I wonder where you are.

My aching feet are frozen where I stand.

()

A faithful, glowing lightbulb would be grand;

It's so much safer than a shooting star.

I wake to find my eyes clogged up with sand.

()

Dream lovers melt by day, I understand.

I'm waiting for a never coming car.

My aching feet are frozen where I stand.

()

Remember us, the planet and her star

who danced on tightropes between love and war.

I wake to find my eyes clogged up with sand.

My aching feet are frozen where I stand.
