Blues Traveler – Dream On lyrics
Music & lyrics: john popper

How can I stay awake when I know that my dreams will be of you
These moments I spend with you in my slumber are much too few
There are those who say that I spend too much time with my mind in an unconscious state
But how can there be harm in your arms in the dreams I create

What is right, what is wrong
What is poetry and what is song
Why can't I be left where I belong
Oh, to dream on, oh to dream on
Oh, what's sincere
What is fake
Why do they fear for my own sake
What magic rule will I break
Oh, to dream on, oh, to dream on

It's not a crime, too sublime to imagine a better life than this
One thought of you and I can't resist
I don't want to stay in a gray world that is so corrupt
Sometimes I pray, and I pray that I'll never wake up

What is right, what is wrong
What is poetry and what is song
Why can't I be left where I belong
Oh, to dream on, oh to dream on
Oh, what's sincere
What is fake
Why do they fear for my own sake
What magic rule will I break
Oh, to dream on, oh, to dream on

Oh, you know that I want you, so please let me sleep
In my dreams I will see you, in my dreams we will meet
In my sleep, love is easy, you know how I care
But I wake in the morning I and find you're not there
Come back to the living is what my friends say
One thought of you washes all of the words away
And I tell them
And I tell them
Why don't you just let me dream on
Dream on
Dream on
