On the Shores of Time

Teach Me to Dream

Standing on the edge of the precipice
Looking deep into a sea of clear blue
Eyes reflecting this internal prison
Tidal motions longing for freedom
Buffeting the rocky shores of time

Take a piece of this darkness
Lock it away in bright sunlight
Replacing the part of my heart
You took away when you left

Teach me to dream with desire
Freeing this raging fire burning
Deep inside my heart and soul

With sleep still in my eyes I awake
No longer lost on the shores of time

Moving with the tidal ebb and flow
