DREAM HOUNDS


DREAM HOUNDS

S.JENSEN © 2012-13 redone 2017

LOST IN IT ALL

ONE DAY FROM

ALL THE LIES

THEY MAKE

INSIDE WITHOUT

A SINGLE TRACE

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

LOOKIN TO FIND

A BETTER SITUATION

NEVER COMES

OF THE RAINY DAYS

NEVERENDING

PRISM OF COLOURS

SO BRIGHT

THEY MOMENTARILY SHINE

LOST MY SENSES

IN THE BLINK

OF AN EYE

OVER RUN THIS PULSE

WHEN SUNSETS

THE FINAL SKY

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

THE HEART SWORE

IT WOULD FIND

A WAY

SURVIVING

ALL THE WORDS

WRITTEN

AS THE SOUNDS

RANG OUT

LOUD AND CLEAR

SUDDENLY

FELT SO ALONE

NOT UNDERSTANDING

THEIR TRUE

MEANING

IT WALKED IN

LIKE A TIDAL WAVE

PUSHING MY INTELLECT

OUT THE

WINDOW

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

ROLLING IN AND OUT…

OH HOW COULD

I LET IT HAPPEN

OH HOW COULD

I JUST LET IT HAPPEN

THE RISKS I MADE

THE DRASTIC REMINDERS

OF THE COST

I SHOUTED IT

I SAID IT

AND THE WALLS

SHOOK

BUT

TO GET TO HER

WAS IMPOSSIBLE

FAR FAR TOO LATE

WAS I

NOR DID I KNOW

DAMN BLOODY

YEARS

THOUGHTS IN MY MIND

CIRCLE AROUND

MY CREATIVE

INTENTIONS

TO SAVE ME

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

HAVE I SO MESSED IT UP

IN TIME SO

OVERRUN

WITH EMOTIONS

I AM NOT

GOOD AT FEELING

SOMETIMES

I CAN BE SO COLD

OTHERS SO

DEEPLY HOT

SACRIFICES

I DIDN’T WANT TO MAKE

FELT SO WRONG

AND SO

I CARRIED FOREWARD

OH THE TRUTH

SHE DESERVES

TO KNOW

WHY

MY HEART RAN AWAY

SHE HAD MOVED ON

SO I LET GO

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

ARE ALWAYS CALLING…

NO ONE COULD

STILL FEEL

THE SAME

AFTER ALL THIS

TIME PASSING US BY

OH SO MANY

YEARS

MY FRIEND

DID I MISS YOU

NOW WE CHAT

OFF AND ON

ON OPPOSITE

SIDES OF THE WORLD

A LONG WAY

FROM OUR

LITTLE

CANOE RIDES

OR

SUMMER

TRAILS

AND GAMES

WE SO PLAYED

SIT WITH DUST

ON THE SHELVES

PASSING THE

TIME AWAY

WITHOUT PURPOSE

FOR ALL

THOSE I LOST

ALONG THE WAY

FROM SMALL TO BIG

FROM ONE CHANCES

TO LIFETIMES AGO

THE MOMENTS

AND OH

HOW MY LOVE

SO TENDS TO BE

BLIND

MORE AND MORE

PLAYS OF

FOOLISHNESS

I LET IT HAPPEN

AND RELISHED IN

THE PLAY

IGNORING THE FACTS

AND LOGIC

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

FEELING YOU NO LONGER

KNOW TO

WHAT I FEEL

LOST SO MANY

FOUND MANY BACK

YET NEVER

EVER

TO RELISH THAT

KIND OF FRIENDSHIP

AGAIN

WASHING MY HEART

AWAY WITH IT ALL

STILL I REMAIN

THE SAME

AS BEFORE

JUST WISER

NOW

OH MY MIND

WAS SO ON FIRE

AND ALL

THE SPACES IN BETWEEN

THE YOU AND I

AND US OR THEM

LOST

FROM RIGHTS TO WRONGS

FROM

JOYS TO HORRORS

TRAVELED

DOWN A PATH

THAT NEITHER

WANTED THE CHOICES

IT WOULD BRING

LIKE A FOUNTAIN

IT JUST ALL SPILLED OUT

WRITING WAY

TOO MUCH

OF ME

FAR TO FAST

MY MIND WAS RACING

ON FIRE

FROM THE

ILLNESS

THAT NO LONGER

SITS THERE

SLOWLY FADING

OUT INTO OBLIVION

WITH MY

WAYS

WICKED LITTLE WAYS

I LOCKED THEM

ALL AWAY

HOW DARE I DREAM

OH DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

SO HOOKED

SO FAST

LIKE A FISH HUNGRY

FOR THE BAIT

CAUGHT LIKE

A SPIDER TO

THE WEB

OH THE LIES

OF MY LOST HEART

THE VERY SECOND

I SAW IT WAS

NOT HER

I CRIED AND ALMOST

DIED RIGHT THERE

TO THAT SOUND

IN MY EARS

PLAYING OVER

THE RECORDS OF

IT ALL

GOING HOW COULD

IT HAVE BEEN

SO WRONG

SO HURT

DID IT DO

OVER AND OVER

I LET IT

NOW RANGING

IN MYSTERIES

FACTS FORGOTTEN

TO RESEARCH

FOR IDEAS

TO WRITE

LOST IT ALL

DEAR FRIENDS

SO WALKED FAR

FAR AWAY NOW

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

NEVER GO

ALWAYS SEEING

THAT WHICH

WILL NEVER BE

CONSEQUENCES

OF TAKING THE EDGE

AND RUNNING WITH IT

HEARD MY NAME

AND RAN OFF

LIKE A CHILD

LEFT TO MY

SORROWS

ALWAYS LEFT

TO THAT WHICH

IS ALWAYS

A FORGOTTEN

STONE WALL

NOW

WITH ITS CRACKS

THEY CREATED

PATCHED THEM ALL

TO UNBREAK

MY HEART

AND SAVE MY

SOUL

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

HOPING THEIR LIVES

ARE FULL OF HAPPINESS

AND TREASURE

THE IMMORTAL

RANKS OF THOSE

THAT CARRY

OUR GENES

FROM OUR CHILDREN

FOREWARD

WHEN WE ALL ARE GONE

ALL IN THE RHYTHMS

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

TO OVERCOME

AND ALL FAR DOWN

IN THE OCEAN

LIKE THE BORDERS

OF LOVE

NEVER REAL

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

FOREVER

SEEING WHAT

I SEE

WAVES OF LIGHT

FLOWED IN AND OUT

AS I WALKED

IN BETWEEN

AND LOST

CONTACT

WITH THE HERE

AND NOW

TRAVELING ON

MY WAY BACK

AROUND

SO COMPELLED

THEY CALLED

AND CALLED

AND BEGGED

ME TO STAY

WRACKING MY BRAIN

TO SAY NO

GO AWAY

HOLY WATER

DRANK IT DOWN

SO ALL OF IT

LEFT ME

IN THE MATTER

OF MINUTES

OH SO LONG LONG AGO

THE CHALLENGES

WE ALL FACE

AS WE BATTLE

THAT WHICH

I LEFT BEHIND

FROM GOOD

TO EVIL

TO ITS NEVER ENDING

RAGE

OF THAT WHICH

I SO WALKED

AWAY FROM

LIKE BLACK AND WHITE

FILM

FOLLOWED

IN THE GREY CLOUDS

LOOKING

FOR MY COLOURS

THAT JUST DON’T

SHINE THERE

ANY MORE

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

HAVE NO HOME

TO REST

NEXT TO MINE

HEAD HURT

AS MY HEART HURT

SO LONG

CRIED TO MANY

RIVERS

AND LET IT PASS ME

BY

TO GAIN

SOME KIND OF SANITY

IN A MIST

OF QUOTES

AND INSPIRATIONS

EACH DAY

I WORKED

MY WAY BACK

LEAVING BEHIND

THOUGHTS THAT

JUST MADE NO SENSE

ON A PHYSICAL

LEVEL

BUT OH SO MUCH

ON A SPIRITUAL

JOURNEY

DID I GO

DO I NOW WALK

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

FROM NEGATIVE

TO POSITIVE

AND ALL THE WORLDS

THAT WALK THE WAYS

OF THE LINES

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

ALWAYS WARNING

FOR MANY YEARS

REMAINED IN HIDING

BUT RIPE FOR THE

RAPING

I TORE THE CHARM

APART ALLOWING

THE CURSE TO FOLLOW

BUT SAVING

MY LIFE

DAYS IN

AND DAYS OUT

GOING THROUGH

ALL THE PEOPLE

TO FEEL GROUNDED

LISTENING

TO EACH WORD

OH TO THE FICKLE

CARELESSNESS

OF ME

LETTING THE THEM

IN …

WE ALL WALK AWAY

WHEN WE CAN

THE FIXED

DAMAGES

ON ALL SIDES

SO WRONG TO ALL

INVOLVED

AND ONLY KNOWING

MY SIDE OF THIS

IT IS LIKE

WHY DID THEY

DO THIS

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

THERE ARE NO SECRETS

TO WHO I AM

THE ARTIST

THE LONELY ONE

I TRAVEL THIS

PATH FOR A VERY

LONG TIME NOW

SEEMS FOR

TWO DECADES

I SEARCHED

IN VAIN

TO FIND

THAT WHICH

ONLY MADE IT

SO MUCH MORE

IN VAIN

NO WHERE NEAR

WHERE I WANTED

IT TO ORIGINALLY BE

HAD TO LET GO

SO HAD TO LET GO

SLIPPING

CHANCES THROUGH

MY HANDS

THAT COULD HAVE

BEEN GOOD

FOR ALL OF US

BUT NO

SOMEONE OR

SOMEONES FOR THAT

MATTER

MAKE SO MUCH

UNNECESSARILY FUCKED

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

ALL I HAVE

IS HOPE

HOW EVIL IS THAT

HOPE FOR A

LOST CAUSE

LOST ME

LIKE HOUNDS TO CALL

IN THIS LOVE

THAT NEVER

REALLY WAS

REAL

THOUGH I DIDN’T

KNOW THAT

TIL FAR TOO LATE

TECHNOLOGY

BROKEN

LOCKED AND LOST

SO MUCH

IMPORTANT THINGS

TO NO ONE

BUT ME

FOR A LOST

LINK FRIENDSHIP

SO TWISTED IN THE PROCESS

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

SO CRAZY

DID IT TAKE ME

THROUGH ALL THE

NOISE

LINKED MY MIND

TO A CHAOS

I REFUSE TO FOLLOW

REFUSE TO ALLOW

OH TO THE

REAL

SO REAL PARTS

OF THIS ALL

I AM ALWAYS SAYING

IT IS WHAT IT IS

NOW

WHAT IS DONE

IS DONE

BUT WHAT

IS LEFT

IS SO FAR FAR

DOWN IN THE

OCEAN FLOOR

IT TORE APART

EVERYTHING IN ME

AND REBUILT ME

BACK AROUND

THE KARMIC

LESSONS

OF SEEKING

LOVE IN

ALL THE WRONG

WAYS

BROUGHT

TROUBLES

AND EMOTIONS

THAT

FIRED SO

MUCH

A CHALLENGE

THAT I LEFT

WHEN SHE WALKED AWAY

INSTANTLY

DID I LEAVE AS WELL

SO IN LOVE

WAS I

SO MUCH

AND SPIRIT YEARNED

NOW IT RESTS

AND LOVE

IS NO WHERE

TO BE FOUND

IT WILL ALWAYS

HAUNT

IF I LET IT

SO I PASS IT ON

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

TO MY

ETERNAL

FAIRY TALES

OF WORDS IN WORLDS

I SO LOVED

TO WRITE ON

DREAM ON

THE

ETERNAL

REALMS OF MY

HEART

TO BE IN

THE ARMS

OF THOSE

I ONCE LOVED

OVERCOMING

THE OBSESSIONS

TO COOL

MY HEART

IN THE HARSH

WAKING

IT BROUGHT

THE BLOODY

HOUNDS

THAT CARRIED

MY LOVE

OUT THE WINDOW

TO THE HAVE

TO FORGET

AND FORGIVE

UW LIEFDE

ALTJID

DE WEG KWIJT

ROZEN VAN MIJN HART

WALKING AWAY

WE ALL WALKED AWAY

TO KEEP

WHAT WE KNEW

TO BE RIGHT

WHEN LIES

AND WRONGS

WERE EVERY WHERE

MY BLOOD HERITAGE

TO MY NOW

ENGLISH AMERICAN

WITH DANISH-DUTCH

SADNESS OF

ALL MY FAMILY

GONE FROM ME

I DON’T

EVEN TRY TO LEARN

IT

DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

CARRY ME

AWAY

HEART

LET IT REST

IN THE REALMS

WHERE IT

SO BELONGED

AS I CARRY ON

TRAVELING

THE GYPSY WAY

IF NO WHERE ELSE

BUT IN MY

WISHES

STUCK IN

THE CONFINES

OF FOUR WALLS

I TRAVEL

FROM MY CHAIR

TO CREATE

WITH THE MUSE

ALWAYS ON

MY MIND

GETS ME

THROUGH IT ALL

TO ALL

THE FRIENDS

WE TRAVELED

AWAY FROM

TO DO OUR LIVES

KNOW I HAVE

NO ILL FEELINGS

FOR DREAMS

THESE DREAMS…

I CARRY ALWAYS

IN THE DEPTHS

OF MY HEART

EACH LITTLE PIECE

OF THAT PIE IN TIME

AND SPACE

INSIDE

STILL BRINGS A SMILE

WHEN I SO

DON’T WANT TO

SMILE

- - -

I LEAVE IT THERE

TO GO DRINK

MY AFTERNOON

TEA

=)
