Dream On
Lyrics: John Popper
Music: John Popper

How can I stay awake when I know that my dreams will be of you
These moments I spend with you in my slumber are much too few
There are those who say that I spend too much time with my mind in an unconscious state
But how can there be harm in your arms in the dreams I create

What is right, what is wrong
What is poetry and what is song
Why can't I be left where I belong
Oh, to dream on, oh to dream on
Oh, what's sincere
What is fake
Why do they fear for my own sake
What magic rule will I break
Oh, to dream on, oh, to dream on

It's not a crime, too sublime to imagine a better life than this
One thought of you and I can't resist
I don't want to stay in a gray world that is so corrupt
Sometimes I pray, and I pray that I'll never wake up

What is right, what is wrong
What is poetry and what is song
Why can't I be left where I belong
Oh, to dream on, oh to dream on
Oh, what's sincere
What is fake
Why do they fear for my own sake
What magic rule will I break
Oh, to dream on, oh, to dream on

Oh, you know that I want you, so please let me sleep
In my dreams I will see you, in my dreams we will meet
In my sleep, love is easy, you know how I care
But I wake in the morning I and find you're not there
Come back to the living is what my friends say
One thought of you washes all of the words away
And I tell them
And I tell them
Why don't you just let me dream on
Dream on
Dream on

  Unrelated to the Aerosmith tune of the same name, John once claimed to have written this before they did. To accomplish this, however, John would have had to have written this when he was six.
