An old song about a dream...

lyrics

I did not know that I was sleeping
I did not know that I was dreaming
I did not know it was my mind

I came to warm myself by the crater of your soul
The road was dark and yet your promise kept me bold
Stood before it and I wept, There were no coals
The molten rock had turned to stone
It was cold

The earth it swallowed all my grief where it was blown
It poured into those crevices
And trickled down to unknown depths
And I felt a stirring in my chest compose
A melody opposing all your woes
A song that drifted from us and arose

We are the calm and not the storm
We are the refuge
We are loved in truth
Let us try not to forget this
We are the calm and not the storm
We are the refuge
This is a fading youth
Let's be careful how we spend it

I just need you
I just need you
I just need you

The valleys filled with all the music we had made
The storm had cleared and there was nothing left in shade
Every stone beside my feet began to shake
And underneath a glowing lake began to wake

Eruption deafening, a violence untamed
The air within my lungs compressed
The vapors penetrate my flesh
And the blood that gave me life was threshed like grain
The beating of my heart was done in vain
And it was then that we became the same

We are the calm and not the storm
We are the refuge
We are loved in truth
Let us try not to forget this
We are the calm and not the storm
We are the refuge
This is a fading youth
Let's be careful how we spend it

I just need you
I just need you
I just need you
