I had a dream today
Somewhere I've never been before
An old familiar face
One that I swear I've seen before

And I think I'm going crazy
Yes I think I'm going crazy
But I known, all along
But there's no restitution for what we've done
No resolution and I
I just can't take it anymore

I had a dream today
That California sank below
And along the way
They watched their favorite tv show

The suns were all around
The golden gate was broken down
How heavy is the hail
But where's that old and faithful from

And I think I'm going crazy
Yes I think I'm going crazy
Because I known, all along
That there's no restitution for what we've done
No explanation and I
I just can't fake it anymore

Bubububababa
Bububababa
Badom
Things will never be lonely

Bubububababa
Bububababa
Badom
Things will never be lonely

Who knew the sun wont shine
Could be so detrimental

I had a dream today
That boxatony traveled round
At much to there dismay
They saw a shadow on the ground
And I think I'm going crazy
Yes I think I'm going crazy
Because I've known, all along
But there's no restitution for what we've done
No substitution and I
I just can't take it anymore

I had a dream today
Somewhere I've never been before

    Your lyrics for mayer hawthorne's "dreaming" are incorrect, and don't make any sense as they are now.
    The two lines beginning with, "how heavy is the hail" is actually, "how heavy is the head, that wears that old and faithful crown". Also, boxatony isn't a word; try looking it up in the dictionary. Being from the pennsylvania area where groundhog's day is rather important, I believe the verses are, "i had a dream today, that punxsutawney gathered round", not the nonsensical "... -that boxatony traveled round".
    Thanks a ton, please correct this mistake soon.
