I have it all
I have nothing
It's all in my mind
From another time
But who am I
To complain
About circumstance?
Give me another chance
At finding the truth

'Cause I'm alive
This love's a fake
Wake up tomorrow
Brand new day
Was it a dream?
As real as you seemed
Leaving me
Without a thing
'Cause I woke up
With someone else not me

And I can't believe
All these years
Have come and gone
In a night
My whole life
I built it all
On nothing
'Cause I never knew
Just who was who
Was livin' with this truth

'Cause I'm alive
This love's a fake
Wake up tomorrow
Brand new day
Was it a dream?
As real as you seemed
Leaving me
Without a thing
'Cause I woke up
With someone else not me

And I can't believe

I have it all
I have nothing
It's all in my mind
From another time
I gotta start
Over again
'Cause every night
Is just black and white
I'm living with this truth

'Cause I'm alive
This love's a fake
Wake up tomorrow
Brand new day
Was it a dream?
As real as you seemed
Leaving me
Without a thing
'Cause I woke up
I woke up
With someone else not me

    Everything he had with her was too good to be true... It all ended up being fake & she left him & and he's not himself anymore

    Previous success with skid row is behind the smoke of years. Beautiful but simple dream. He woke up as new man and now he's ready to start anew
