The Nightmare Lyrics

Home  • 

Co-Written With Chris Nicks

Thrown down through the arms of sleep
She fell through the ivory morning
Deep into the waters
Of the one she called love
She paled in the wake
Of what some call a dream
But, you cannot know a dream
Till you’ve known the nightmare
When I stood with you against the storm
And I tried once again
Well, I said, “I’d like to leave you
With something warm”
How many times
Drowning in the sea
Drowning
That was when the dream took her prisoner
And she knew the dream was over
But, the nightmare was not over
Still some call that a dream
The nightmare… the nightmare
Well, you cannot know a dream
When you turn away
You don’t know
You’ll never care
The night is not your friend
And you have not had her
And when the nightmare ends
But, you never understand
When you’re gone
She wakes up calling out
Oh, calling out
As children may cry as she will
Anytime, oh, anywhere
Blinded by the light of the day
She has known the nightmare
So about the moon and her sisters
How dare he take them prisoner
Well, if she had flung out her heart against him
Then in all of her wisdom
Oh, well that was a mystery
That was when the dream took her prisoner
And she knew the dream was over
But the nightmare was not over
Somewhere in her ancient ways
She walks through the night
And then she tries to get through the day
Some will never know
Or share any kind of dream
The nightmare
This is not the world
This is not the world
This is not the world
The nightmare
She wants him to fight, anytime, anywhere
She wants him to stand up
She wants him to win
This is not the world
This is not the world
This is not the real world
Blinded by the light of the day
Blinded by the light
She was blinded by the light of the day
Blinded by the day
