Sometimes being a dreamer isn't all it's cracked up to be. There's a dark side full of disappointment, mixed-up priorities, and the immense pressure and expectations.

tragedy of being a dreamer

constant thoughts,

drown out the noise of my reality,

so stuck in the past and future,

so stuck in the past and future, the present gets lost in the middle.

thinking of what went wrong,

thinking of what went wrong, thinking of what can go right,

thinking of what went wrong, thinking of what can go right, forgetting where I'm at.

everyone says it's good to have hope,

everyone says it's good to have hope, no one talks about the disappointment.

everybody and everything becomes a project,

everybody and everything becomes a project, something that needs fixing.

everybody and everything becomes a project, something that needs fixing. something i can improve.

constantly chasing,

constantly chasing, the idea of the ideal.

losing myself in my own expectations.

where do i go?

where do i go? when i don't know.

what do i say?

what do i say? when my thoughts drown me out.

her heads in the clouds,

her heads in the clouds, that's what they all say.

her heads in the clouds, that's what they all say. but it's not true.

my heads on Earth,

my heads on Earth, trapped in reality.

but my heart,

but my heart, that's in the clouds.

it's the part of me-

it's the part of me- that's sad when people disappoint,

it's the part of me- that's sad when people disappoint, that tells me I'm ok when i need help,

my head is on earth and my heart is in the clouds.

my head is on earth and my heart is in the clouds. leaving me in a tug a war thinking out loud.

my head is on earth and my heart is in the clouds. leaving me in a tug a war thinking out loud. nobody told me being a dreamer leaves your heart in two.
