Verse 1

Funny how it always takes me just a few moments to spot you in a crowd.

Did you know I'd be burning bright red now if thoughts could be heard aloud?

Last thing I remember, my eyes were staring at the sunshine in yours.

Your hand was in mine, and my heart was filled with something warm and pure.

Chorus

The next thing I knew, I had collapsed on my laptop.

And for one brief moment, I could feel the world stop.

Now I know what they mean by a silent scream.

And I said, this is a bad dream, this is a bad bad dream.

And you said, you could only wish it was so.

That was the moment I knew you were letting me go-

While my hopes and dreams were filled to the brim.

And I said, this is a bad dream, this is a bad bad dream.

Verse 2

Funny how one minute your world is perfect, and in the next you can only blink.

Was that a blow to your house of cards? That's not what you'd like to think.

And what am I gonna do now with that special little bar of chocolate?

Or the wrist band that now seems to strangle my heart with this twist of fate?

Chorus

The next thing I knew, I had collapsed on my laptop.

And for one brief moment, I could feel the world stop.

Now I know what they mean by a silent scream.

And I said, this is a bad dream, this is a bad bad dream.

And you said, you could only wish it was so.

That was the moment I knew you were letting me go-

While my hopes and dreams were filled to the brim.

And I said, this is a bad dream, this is a bad bad dream.

Bridge

And it's kind of hard to believe you're not in my jurisdiction anymore.

Life better have a good reason for why I went knocking at your door.

Chorus

The next thing I knew, I had collapsed on my laptop.

And for one brief moment, I could feel the world stop.

Now I know what they mean by a silent scream.

And I said, this is a bad dream, this is a bad bad dream.

And you said, you could only wish it was so.

That was the moment I knew you were letting me go-

While my hopes and dreams were filled to the brim.

And I said, this is a bad dream, this is a bad bad dream.
