Splash down in the silver screen
Into a deep dramatic scene
I swim through the theater
Or maybe I'm just a dreamer
Like a kite in the bright midday
Wonder stole my breath away
Shy sonata for Mercury
The stars always sing so pretty

This picnic will soon depart
Real life, I'm sad to see you go
I'll miss you with all my heart
But I'd rather be alone
'Cause I couldn't live without
Sunsets that dazzle in the dusk
So I'll drag the anchor up
And rest assured, 'cause dreams don't turn to dust

Dreams don't turn to dust

I made for the countryside
And my eyes never grew so wide
Apple raspberry river blue
I don't wanna leave without you
In the sound I gladly drowned
Into the emerald underground
I rub my eyes 'cause it's hard to see
Surrounded by all this beauty

This picnic will soon depart
Real life, I'm sad to see you go
I'll miss you with all my heart
But I'd rather be alone
'Cause I couldn't live without
Sunsets that dazzle in the dusk
So I'll drag the anchor up
And rest assured, 'cause dreams don't turn to dust

When tiger eyes begin making you blush
When daimonds boast that they can't be crushed
Let them go cause dreams don't turn to dust

This picnic will soon depart
Real life, I'm sad to see you go
I'll miss you with all my heart
But I'd rather be alone
'Cause I couldn't live without
Sunsets that dazzle in the dusk
So I'll drag the anchor up
And rest assured, 'cause dreams don't turn to dust

Dreams don't turn to dust

Dreams don't turn to dust

And rest assured, 'cause dreams don't turn to dust

    I completely disagree with anna. Those songs are great and so full of emotion. If all of his songs were the same it just wouldn't be the same. I personally feel like lonely lullaby is beautiful and it's one of my all time favorite songs.

    I think it means to just be yourself and not to worry about loosing yourself, you can never be crushed. :)

    Hello adam i love your songs sssooo much. You inspire me and my band faith to charity. I guess your right dreams dont turn to dust, not as long if we believe in ourselves and not only in us but believe that our dreams will come true. Well your not the only one thats been broken hearted i just like you, am to. But we have to under stand that we cant look back at the past look whats in front of you. Maybe you have something special coming your way but your dystany wont come if you keeplooking behind you !!! Its like this for example how can i hear my new dystany guy calling if i keep looking back to my old boy friend just standing there with his new girlfriend!! I have to accept life so we have to take a giant step forword and not back words!!! The guys that ive been with for the lats few years told me that iwas to childesh and to faciouse i dont think that playing with barbies is a bad thing or to make songs out of evey thing that i see . You know what i said my self after my old boyfriend told me that we are over i said to my self maybe ill just quit writting songs but then again my mommy told me you just ignore the things they or he said. Thats when istarted to write more songs of how i was broken hearted and hey i dont blame any song you write cause thers a saying through out life if you a singer and a song writter its that music is based on what you live by or see!!! So dont let the words hurt you cause at the end of every concet you" adam young"have , you will say fewww glad thats done with and youll thank god for it. By the way did i mention i and my band are a huge fan of owl city :) your cute by the way!!! So dont let the coments you read hurt you ya. Your a singer, im a singer we pretty much know what we go through dont we. Remember to look over and younder ok mr. Young
