Been listening to this song over and over this past week. It seems like that happens a lot on this journey. You find a song that speaks to you in a different way than it did before...


When the dream came
I held my breath
with my eyes closed
I went insane,
Like a smoke ring day
When the wind blows
Now I won't be back
till later on
If I do come back at all
But you know me,
and I miss you now.

In a strange game
I saw myself as you knew me
When the change came,
And you had a
Chance to see through me
Though the other side
is just the same
You can tell
my dream is real
Because I love you,
can you see me now.

Though we rush ahead
to save our time
We are only what we feel
And I love you,
can you feel it now.

Boy, no kidding about the words' changed meanings.  Wow.  I guess this is the first time I've heard this song since Billie died....thanks, Mac.
