You Used To Dream

Story Behind The Song

A year after my best friend lost his little brother he lost his life as well. As he slid into deep depression, I watched my best friend wither away from that free spirited party animal in high school to a guy that didn't even really care to speak anymore. I miss him everyday. RIP J.Bryant

You Used To Dream

Who turned out the lights while you were dreaming?

You used to dream, Nothing ever got you down
Ya tore up the concrete, Now you leave a mess to figure out
You'd scream from places too far to hear
From corner's that are made of fear
Whatever happened to your crown?

Who turned out the lights while you were dreaming?
Whoever said you were never good enough to fly?
It's like you got a fever and can't shake, all you ever do is hide
From me and that place you used to dream

You used to laugh looking just like a fool
You'd always skip class, yeah you were too cool for school
You run, your sights were set for higher ground
Yeah you had it all planned out.
You'd sing if it meant the death of you

On and On
It goes on and on
