Teardrop Dreams

Time after time,

Time after time, you have come and gone.

Time after time, you have come and gone. You stay through the night,

Time after time, you have come and gone. You stay through the night, but leave at dawn.

Every visit you make

Every visit you make is either a dream come true

Every visit you make is either a dream come true or a nightmare made reality.

Every visit you make is either a dream come true or a nightmare made reality. But I will always welcome you.

You may not be here,

You may not be here, but I certainly do know

You may not be here, but I certainly do know that if you were,

You may not be here, but I certainly do know that if you were, you would dry my grief-filled flows.

I miss you every night.

I miss you every night. I pretend you’re still here

I miss you every night. I pretend you’re still here to whisper small comforts

I miss you every night. I pretend you’re still here to whisper small comforts and smother my fears.

So kiss me goodnight

So kiss me goodnight and bid me adieu.

So kiss me goodnight and bid me adieu. You'll be there for me,

So kiss me goodnight and bid me adieu. You'll be there for me, and I, for you.

I’ll dream the best dreams,

I’ll dream the best dreams, where we’ll go on an adventure.

I’ll dream the best dreams, where we’ll go on an adventure. We'll be side by side,

I’ll dream the best dreams, where we’ll go on an adventure. We'll be side by side, exploring together.

I cherish these nights the most—

I cherish these nights the most— when time seems to reverse.

I cherish these nights the most— when time seems to reverse. But when the morn comes again,

I cherish these nights the most— when time seems to reverse. But when the morn comes again, I can only weep at this curse.

I can't help but dream

I can't help but dream of all the places we could've gone,

I can't help but dream of all the places we could've gone, the mysteries we would've uncovered,

I can't help but dream of all the places we could've gone, the mysteries we would've uncovered, the time we should've spent.

I can't help but dream

I can't help but dream of what life would be like

I can't help but dream of what life would be like if you were still here.

I can't help but dream of what life would be like if you were still here. I miss you.

~~ Somehow, I imagined this being related to the absent father figure. It's funny how I never mentioned that in here though.

~~ Dad's don't have to be dead to be gone, They just need to walk out on you. Ain't that the story of my life.
