While in these days of quiet desperation
I search everywhere, for some new inspiration

Or a comfort I can use to ease my mind
And I dream of an imaginary time
[Chorus: ]
Everybody has a dream
Just to be at home

And if a word from you can bring a better day
To keep my hope from crumbling away
So let me lie and let me go on sleeping
And all the fantasies that I have been keeping
