Song Description

musically it's a lilting waltz. Lyrically it's one of longing and fear and observing the inner battle to let go

Story Behind the Song

Literally found myself in the closet hugging my boyfriend's jacket. The lyric pretty much tells as is.

Lyrics

Oh What Dreams Have Awakened


I'm standing here hugging
Your clothes in the closet
Missing you wishing you wanting you here
My heart beats so fast
That it feels like a rocket
Ready for take off
With the feel of you near to me


Oh what dreams have awakened
Oh how I fight with my fears
That you've gone dancing to town
And sold all our dreams
For a smoke and a beer


I've opened my heart
Like a golden cased locket
I've reached to the depths
Of my inner most pockets
I've brought forth the keys
That have kept me from slipping
Into the pit that you seem to be kissing


Oh what dreams have awakened
Oh how I fight with my fears
That you've gone dancing to town
And sold all our dreams
For a smoke and a beer


I'm wrapping your jacket
Round my tense shoulders
That feel like they carry
The weight of a boulder
There's a part of you, Love,
That I'll never be losing
But I must accept
That I can't do your choosing


Oh what dreams have awakened
And oh how I fight with my fears
That you've gone dancing to town
And sold all our dreams
For a smoke and a beer
