Trapped Inside a Dream
By Charlie Crow

You're standing in the doorway
Crooked smile, eager eyes
Laughter ripples my way
Like a cloud of butterflies
A hint of citrus blossom
Where your shoulder meets the sun
Another morning awesome
That could never be undone

All my senses say it clearly
You're everywhere it seems
But I can't draw you near me
'Cause I'm trapped inside a dream

Slowly I awaken
To greet you from my bed
I must have been mistaken
You were only in my head
I try to recollect
As I turn against the wall
What spoiled a love so perfect
I really can't recall

You're somewhere here inside me
Can't figure what it means
But common sense reminds me
I'm trapped inside a dream
I can see you--
I can feel you--
I can taste you--
I can tell you are so close
I can touch you it seems...

But common sense reminds me
There's no way for you to find me
Even if you were behind me
I'm trapped inside a dream--
Still trapped inside my dream
