Strange maze, what is this place?
I hear voices over my shoulder,
Nothing's making sense at all.
Wonder, why do we race?
When everyday we're runnin' in circles,
Such a funny way to fall.
Tried to open up my eyes,
I'm hopin' for a chance to make it alright.

When I wake up,
The dream isn't done.
I wanna see your face,
And know I made it home.
If nothing is true,
What more can I do?
I am still painting flowers for you.

Show my cards,
Gave you my heart,
Wish we could start all over.
Nothing's makin' sense at all.
Tried to open up my eyes,
I'm hopin' for a chance to make it alright.

When I wake up,
The dream isn't done.
I wanna see your face,
And know I made it home.
If nothing is true,
What more can I do?
I am still painting flowers for you,
I am still painting flowers for you.

I heard everything you said,
I don't wanna lose my head,

When I wake up,
The dream isn't done.
I wanna see your face,
And know I made it home.
If nothing is true,
What more can I do?
I am still painting flowers for you,
I am still painting flowers for you.

    Well, i hate to sound like a dork but it reminds me of peeta from hunger games. As he has to see katniss every morning to know his nightmare weren't real and that she is alive. And when he was hijacked he didn't know what was true and what wasn't. And he paints :3
    sorry for sounding like a dork!!!

    It's an alice and wonderland themed song. It's starts how alice arrived in wonderland and then how she mets the queen of hearts. Alice is hoping she could wake up from the dream, but she can't. Hence, why she wants to go home.

    I think its about someone loosing his girlfriend. He does everything to try and stop thinking about her, but he can't. So in the end he's still painting flowers, he still loves her
