Dreams of the Future

Author Comments

This will be the last single I am posting for the summer.


This song comes from weird experiences I have when I dream. I tend to have dreams that almost predict what I will do later in life. Most of them are usually simple and seem to last a few seconds, even though I wake up hours later. I hope you enjoy it!


If you like this song, check out more of my stuff on Bandcamp.

Lyrics:

Does it always go

The way you planned


Did you ever know

You’re only here by chance


A small step, A large leap

Fate changes fickly


Yet it’s all predictable

The food you’ll eat, the places you go


Should the path

be a little more obscured


Boredom a fun game to play

But a weapon to destroy the day


And we fight against the change

Get mad when we derail our way


And we try to understand what we just saw

But we run; run; run


Dreams of the future just never make sense, no!

But they come; come; come


It’s been played out before

But I hope that something changes


And there’s a place I’ve always seen

But I hope I’ve never been


Dreams of the future just always goes by

But I don’t know why


Distant fantasies of the dull

Turn to reality


I’ve been here before


They told me for sure


I’ve been here before


I’ll know every step before we walk

I’ll know every word while we talk (do you know why?)


Repetition starts to eat away

The feeling’s just too familiar (Felt like I’ve been here before)


Feeling Déjà vu like, Feeling déjà vu like

Feeling Déjà vu like, I’ve been here before


Feeling Déjà vu like, Feeling Déjà vu like

Feeling Déjà vu like, I’ve been here before


Monotony starts to overtake the things you enjoy

And all that’s left are events on repeat (could you play that again?)


And if the apathy starts to set in

Are you really alive? I don’t know (Could you check?)


Dreams of the future pass me by

Is it same kind of times again? For sure, everyday


Dreams of the future disappear

I’m alone again. So lost, in dismay


Feeling Déjà vu like

I’ve been here before x2
