    Nice falsetto? at the end. Song is a bit morbid but very true

    The song lyrics came about following the death of my mother in late February. It was also inspired by those loved ones who have died in my recent past, from illness or accidents. The song is about how the dead are almost alive in your dreams just at the moment of waking. It is not about spiritual beliefs regarding what happens after death, which is nothing or heaven or something else depending on what you personally believe. But whatever happens (and we don't know for definite one way or another while we are alive), those loved ones seem most alive in those dreams during the dawn twilight when our dreams are vivid and we are conscious of being, yet also spirited away in the dream world.

    Dream Within a Dream

    In the hour before the dawn
    As the twilight starts to play
    Your dreams are all too real and come entwined with thoughts about the day

    When the people that you've lost
    All the ones you wished would stay
    Return and talk to you and act as if they've never passed away

    The ones who went too soon
    Who left without goodbye
    The ones who watched you grow and shared each day of pain and joy

    You don't try to understand it
    Just accept the dreams you're handed
    Clinging to a moment passing all too fast

    As your sleep begins to wane
    And consciousness arrives
    Your loved ones start to fade before you even wipe sleep from your eyes

    And no matter how you try
    To call them back again
    A fog descends to gently separate the now and then

    You don't try to understand it
    Just accept the dreams you're handed
    Clinging to a moment passing all too fast
    Plan as if you'll live forever
    Act as if it's now or never
    Live within the moment, try and make it last

    Your hopes are torn
    Your dreams unborn
    You feel the loss
    And you're counting up the cost

    In the hour before the dawn
    As the twilight starts to play
    Your dreams are all too real and come entwined with thoughts about the day

    When the people that you've lost
    All the ones that passed away
    Return and talk to you and act as if they're here to stay

    You don't try to understand it
    Just accept the dreams you're handed
    Clinging to a moment passing all too fast
    Plan as if you'll live forever
    Act as if it's now or never
    Live within the moment, try and make it last

    A dream within a dream
    A dream within a dream
    A heaven yet unseen
    A dream
    A dream
    A dream within a dream
