After the dream is over...

I want love that leaves me sleepless

Like no dream could ever compare to what is living and breathing and in my arms

But I've learned from love

Learned love is not always a dream...

I learned love and infatuatation are twins

It's hard to tell one from the other

I think I loved you

I think I really did

I think I still do

This love isn't a dream

It's a weight in my chest

A scream in my brain

Yelling out loud " What now?"

What now indeed

I think I loved you

I think I really did

I think I still do

This isn't boy meets girl

Or man and wife

It's making the love last long after the dream is gone

And the dream is gone, gone, gone

I think I loved you

I think I really did

I think I still do

Ask me one more time

Ask me how I feel about you

Because I think I had it all wrong

I don't want to live in a fairytale

Because all I could be is a damsel in distress

And all I ever wanted was to conquer

I think  love you

I think I really did

I think I still do

The End
