lyrics

This is the first BRIGHTLIGHTS track in about ~7yrs. It's about a dream I had that stayed with me for days. This really happened. Thanks for listening.

Verse 1
I live alone, I live a good life
Despotic ruler, but I'm the only one here
Do what I want when I please
But then a coup in my sleep
A faceless angel, a feeling calmer than love
Just neurones firing or influence from above?
And either way I'm in love.

Chorus
You showed me home in a dream but then she drifted away
You showed me hope in the night but then she faded to day

Verse 2
I sat up shivering, and second guessing my head
Did I invent her, or is this something I prayed?
A comfort I didn't know I craved.
To share this bed that I've made.
A faceless angel, a feeling calmer than love
Just neurones firing or influence from above?
And either way I'm in love.

Chorus
You showed me home in a dream but then she drifted away
You showed me hope in the night but then she faded to day
I felt warmed by the sun and the removal of weight
I woke up cold and alone and now I'm all that remains

Middle
It's been so easy, it's been so easy for them
It hasn't happened, hasn't happened for me yet.
Could this be something I get?
