Escape From Oasis

I feel so sad when I wake up from a dream,

Realizing that I have to return to reality.

It's always easier to decipher what nightmares mean;

That my soul is just another casulty.

Every night I go to sleep, hoping to remain in that oasis,

But the next morning I always seem to awaken,

No longer next to you, in all the wrong places;

Thinking of the past, unable to stop the shaking.

In the past I was able to push the plunger and enter a trance,

But lately I've been forced to stay awake;

Forced to live with the memories of our last dance.

Forced to simply accept this fate:

I'll never see you again.

I've lost my best friend.

And if there's anything the last few years have shown,

It's that for the rest of my existence, I'll remain alone.
