« Back to Lyrics

In all my dreams you’re dressed in white
And I am standing without walls
And in the distance I hear a cry
If I could speak I would ask you why
But you don’t hear me
Though you stand so near me

And I wake just to find
It is all in my mind
Sometimes a dream is like a tether of stone
All at once it slips away like a sigh
I close my eyes to try to bring you back
In all my dreams I’m always dressed in black
I know I should go now
But I just don’t know how

‘Cause I can’t say goodbye to you, I don’t want to
‘Cause I can’t say goodbye to you, I don’t want to

On the floor of the sea
There’s a carpet of green
And in the silence all the sea-grass sway
In a dance to some invisible string
And in the dream you are the sea
I live in your deepest darkest ravine
Where you surround me
Where you will drown me

‘Cause I can’t say goodbye to you, I don’t want to
‘Cause I can’t say goodbye to you, I don’t want to
‘Cause I can’t tell you, tell you goodbye
And we push and we pull, yeah…

In all my dreams you’re dressed in white
And I am standing without walls
And in the endless tides of time
Where we are soaked and we are blinded
In confusion, all our Illusions

But I can’t say goodbye to you, I don’t want to
I just can’t say goodbye to you,
I don’t want to
