Lyrics

I would throw myself underneath
The wheels of any train of thought
Running off the rails or sail you through
The rogue waves of your brain

If I could bring a light to shine
Upon the dark and disobey
The night so young
But I still say we’re too old
For clichés

Oh I can only dream of the dreams we’d share
If you were so inclined
I would love to be the one to open up your mind

I could base my whole existence
Upon the cherry strands of your gold hair
I would ask almost insist upon
Treating you kind and fair

Oh I can only dream of the dreams we’d have
How our hearts would be entwined
If you would let me be the one to open up your mind

I’ll still be myself beneath
The banks unbroken beside the stream
Ready to return your thoughts unlearned
So it goes
So it seems

Oh I can only dream of the dreams we’d share
If you weren’t so defined
I would love to be the one to open up your mind
If you would let me be the one to open up your mind
