Dream Lover

I reach for you, and you're not there
And as I rub the sleep from my eyes
I realize it was just another dream

Night after night, you haunt my dreams
With visions of the life we shared
Or did I just imagine it all?

Awake now, I try to remember
But the pictures in my mind
They're faded, and out of focus

Did we really share a special love?
Were we really that happy?
How could we have been if it ended?

Questions and doubts swirl inside my head
Emptiness holds fast to my heart
And sleep tugs at the boundaries of my consciousness

I lay down, and drift off to sleep once more
And, as always you're there
Loving me in my dreams

As you never loved me in reality
