When the dream came
I held my breath with my eyes closed
I went insane
Like a smoke ring day when the wind blows
Now I won't be back till later on
If I do come back at all
But you know me, and I miss you now
In a strange game
I saw myself as you knew me
When the change came
And you had a chance to see through me
Though the other side is just the same
You can tell my dream is real
Because I love you, can you see me now
Though we rush ahead to save our time
We are only what we feel
And I love you, can you feel it now

    Love life. He realizes how transient it all is, and he wants to be remembered for his aliveness to those he loved, he wants to be seen, even when he is strange to himself, he knows his essence is what matters, and his is true. His landscape is dreary without being known, and seen by others. His opening of himself to whoever, was his breakthrough.
