I wonder, I wonder, what I would do
If I could dream any dream I wanted to.
I wonder where would I start, what would I do?
My life is fine, I don’t complain most have it worse its true.
But even then I can’t pretend that I think this is great.
Its random chance or all well planned. Or fuck its left to fate.
But if you ask, I could indulge a playful little ponder
I could dream any dream I wanted to…
Let me think a yonder….
I’d imagine a world I could control
And bend it to my will.
A whole life in dream every night
Until I had my thrill.
A few months of this or more…For sure, I’d guess, a lot.
I’d indulge in every fantasy some I’ll tell and not.
It seems that I would bore of thrill
Dulled by drill and drill
From spring fever to summer loving
Far through the winters chill
Day after day, the shows the same – with nothing else to play
A fun game every night for sure
But nothing would seem right.
If I could a life or two every sleepy night.
I’d find another wrinkle
A new part of the game
The scariest thing to imagine
Is what is here the same.
A world controlled by others
The stories I’ve been told
Of limits here and limits there
Gets quickly very old.
I’d jump upon a new thought bus
A clean and fresh new start
To zap from this reality
Closer to the heart.
If I could dream any dream I wanted to
That’s what I’d do, wouldn’t you?
