The line, “Oh, I’ve been dreaming for too damn long”, came out at almost the same time as the chords on the keyboard. Sometimes words come spontaneously, and I usually write them down before they evaporate. Then I realized the message was meant for me. It was quite disturbing. At the time, I was in that exact mess. The message stung because of its truth. I took action, but many years later. Shame on me.

Oh, I’ve been dreaming
For too damn long
I just have to talk to myself
About what went wrong

And I’ve been thinking
As you can see
The lines of worry and pain
Are down to me

It doesn’t matter to me
I didn’t mean ya to break a leg
On stage for me

And I’ve been wishing
For what can’t be
I understand what you say
Now let it be

It doesn’t matter to me
I didn’t mean ya to break a leg
On stage for me

And I’ve been hoping
That you will stay
I’ll do whatever you want
Along the way

I’ve been dreaming
For much too long
And I’ve been thinking
‘Bout what went wrong
Tell myself it isn’t true

Oh, you and me
Oh, you and me
Oh, you and me
Oh, you and me
