We all need a break
From the daily machine
A little space to feel seen
And be taken by a dream

Staring at the other side
Your body breaks through,
And you’re taken somewhere new
Where people stare,
Thinking you’re not you

But you see…

The Daydreamer
Breaking free
From the chains
Of monotony
Showing you
What you could be
Don’t you see?
You’re a daydreamer just like me
(Oh just like me)
A daydreamer just like me

We all want freedom
From the daily grind
A little space to unwind
Chasing dreams we left behind

Staring at the other side
You gladly step through
And you’re taken somewhere new
People stare in vain for the view

And you see…

The Daydreamer
Breaking free
From the chains
Of monotony
Showing you
What you could be
Don’t you see?
You’re a daydreamer just like me
(Oh just like me)
A daydreamer just like me

You hold up a mirror to see
The Daydreamer
With a smile
You take your coat
And walk a while
Knowing that someday
You’ll find a way
To make sure those dreams
Are here to stay…

Oh,
The Daydreamer
Breaking free
From the chains
Of monotony
Showing you
What you could be
Don’t you see?
You’re a daydreamer just like me
(Oh just like me)
A daydreamer just like me

The Daydreamer

In my head I know we’re not alright,
But in my heart I still put up a fight,
Is there any hope for us,
My transgressions have torn us,,,
Apart

I feel lost, can’t you feel me lost?
I feel lost baby, won’t you help find me
Find me in your heart, a place you called my home,
Before I went and tore it apart

Now I can’t… I can’t go on,
I feel you drifting away but never gone,
From my mind’s eye… you never die,
Chasing shadows of that better life

At the end of a bottle,
Chasing shadows,
at the end of,
I’m chasing shadows,
at the end of a bottle,
at the end of,
at the end of a bottle

Now I’m sitting alone, and without you there,
I can’t think, can’t sleep, and still unaware,
That our love is broken,
Somehow I’m still hoping we go back

Baby come back, come back to me,
I feel so lost, won’t you help find me,
Find me in your heart, a place you called my home,
before I went and tore it apart

Now I can’t…I won’t go on,
I see you drifting away but never gone,
Cause in my mind’s eye, we still survive
Chasing shadows of that better life…

At the end of a bottle,
Oh in the end I’m… chasing shadows,
I’m chasing shadows,
at the end of a bottle,
at the end of…
at the end of a bottle

I can’t numb this pain, yet I still try
I still try to chase shadows…
Oh I can’t deny, but I still try
I still try to chase shadows…

Chasing shadows, I’m chasing shadows
I’m still… I’m still (losing my grip)
Oh, chasing shadows,

at the end of a bottle
at the end of
In the end
I’m chasing shadows…

Chasing Shadows

When she picked me up,

And I turned the page,

No ultimatum,

No gilded cage



Soarin’

Timeless explorin’

A new chapter set,

On nights I can’t forget



Cause she’s a…

Candy floss machine,

And I’m a…

Fashion magazine,

In a doctor’s waiting room,

Wishin’ for a fantasy



Oh,

What if I could be more?

Joy held up high but

All I see is pages of me

Scattered on the floor



When she closed the book,

And I gathered dust,

My first offense...

Thinkin’ about all the nights we went,



Soarin’,

Timeless explorin’,

With my old lifeline

I need to leave behind



Cause she’s a…

Candy floss machine,

And I’m a…

Fashion magazine,

In a doctor’s waiting room,

Wishin’ for a fantasy



Oh,

What if I could be more?

Joy held up high but

All I see is pages of me,

Scattered on the floor


If I were him,

Maybe she’d go back and try again

If I were him,

I’d fly right up and meet her where she stands

And take her hand



Chorus x 2



But she’s a…

Candy floss machine,

And I’m a…

Fashion magazine,

In a doctor’s waiting room,

Wishin’ for a fantasy



Oh,

What if I could be more?

Joy held up high but

All I see is pages of me

Scattered on the floor



(Oh, it’s unfair your fair isn’t where I stay)

Cause all I see is pages of me

Scattered on the floor

Pages of Me
