Confound All These Dreams

lyrics

Confound all these dreams,
they come in slow and stay inside
Oh, they're killing me
They catch my eye with a smile, but oh they're just a lie

She smells of evergreen
The winter north romanticized
A beauty to be seen
Described in words I'd never find in my searching mind

Leave me here with my lonely introspections
All those doubts ringing in my ear
Leave me here with those hanging last words
Better not to hope for what you'll never have

Confound all these dreams,
They never did one thing for me
But tear me at my seams
Raise my hopes on its ropes, to cut me down, it seems

And I would call them lies
A fully false, a swelling tide
I'll look them in the eyes
I haven't lost, there was no cost, I cannot choose a side

Leave me here with my lonely introspections
All those doubts ringing in my ear
Leave me here with those hanging last words
Better not to hope for what you'll never have
