lyrics

I had a dream once that we were God's dream
But God can dream what he wants, why would he dream of me?
I imagine what I want
Pretend how I feel
But I'm scared like a child
To reveal what's real

And when the sun sets, when I see the moon shine, another day dies, I know you'll all be here when I open my eyes

I'm not a perfect man
I'm doing what I can
This isn't my life
Belongs to everyone else

I know I'm too young to feel this old
Sometimes I feel like I'm leasing my soul
I know I don't have a whole lot left
But for you all I'll never go to bed

And when the sun sets, when I see the moon shine, another day dies, I know you'll all be here when I open my eyes

Don't know why I try so hard
To show you what I'm not
I'm not a perfect man
This is all that I've got

It's never enough
Why do I even try to love?
