Dreams of the Future

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.

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
