How can I pretend that I don't see,
What you hide so carelessly?
I saw her bleed,
You heard me breathe.
And I froze inside my self And turned away,
I must be Dreaming.

We all live, [and]
We all die, [but]
That does not begin to justify you.
It's not what it seems,
Not what you think,
No, I must be dreaming
It's only in my mind,
Not real life,
No, I must be dreaming!

Help! You know I've got to tell someone,
Tell them what I know you've done.
I fear you, but spoken fears can come true.

We all live, [and]
We all die, [but]
That does not begin to justify you.
It's not what it seems,
Not what you think,
No I must be dreaming!
It's only in my mind,
Not real life,
No I must be dreaming!

We all live, [and]
We all die, [but]
That does not begin to justify you.
It's not what it seems,
Not what you think,
No I must be dreaming!
It's only in my mind,
Not real life!
No I must be dreaming!

Not what it seems,
Not what you think,
I must be dreaming!
Just in my mind,
Not the real life,
I must be dreaming!

    to me, this song is about a man who broke a girl's heart and caused her to kill herself, but he refuses to believe he's the reason.

    opinionwise, this song is AWSOME!! on my top 5 with evanescence!!! as for song meaning, i THINK, though i might be wrong, she sees like the man she loves doing something BAD and so she is in denial... i think im wrong, but oh well!
