lyrics

DAYDREAM:
Going through the motions in my every day-to-day
Searching for atonement in my own peculiar way
There's always a hurdle, a barrier to break through

Some folks can remember more, and some remember less
And life's a grand adventure on the quest for happiness
I took it to the road last night to try and lighten my head

I was driving down I-55 and Don Williams was playing
And I thought of you, I thought of you, I thought of you
Lost inside a melody of timelessness and memories and trust

The stars up in the sky are just like polka dots to me
The satellites take pictures of their bright intensity
And if there's a heaven up there, I'd swear it has familiarity

Sittin' on the porch last night, the neighbor's dog was barking
And I thought of you, I thought of you, I thought of you
I want to say this carefully, and I hope that you can understand me now

I think you know the way I feel about you
'Cause everyone has seen it in my smile
I have higher self esteem locked inside my daydream
But I'll try, and the chance is worthwhile
And I've known you for a long, long time
And I've wondered how long I will be alone
But now I find it's something I always knew
And it's about time to say, "I love you"

Many are the nights in which I've laid in bed awake
Hoping I can fall asleep so I can see your face
And in the day, it's quite the same, my thoughts are far away
I think it's 'cause I feel safest in my space

It's hard to be rejected when your feelings aren't reflected in what you say
And sometimes my intentions are really just extensions of my fears

But every day contains a moment when I'm not too focused
And I think of you, I really do, I think of you
I need to say this carefully, and I hope you don't misunderstand me now

I think you know the way I feel about you
'Cause everyone has seen it in my smile
I have higher self esteem locked inside my daydream
But I'll try, and the chance is worthwhile
And I've known you for a long, long time
And I've wondered how long I will be alone
But now I find it's something I always knew
And it's about time to say, "I love you"
