In my dreams there are places I've never been
I wonder if we meet there when we both dream.
The places aren't old, nor are they new.
they are definitely not blue,
are they maybe borrowed?
While they are just the same, over again,
and I know that I've been there before.
Opening up like a maze, it just makes sense
once you get there, but never before.
I keep walking through door after door,
up the stairs, and then down the stairs.
Yet its core is out of my reach,
it's like a place I'll never breach.
Then in that stairwell, you give me your
hand and show me the door,
which leads to that central core.
It opens up, to a big cafeteria, and people laugh and talk,
the clock strikes 5 and they have closed their shop,
but we can still see the tasty treats offered up.
This is a place I've never seen,
yet so many times in my dreams I've been.
It comes back all over again
and becomes its own in my mind,
in our shared dreamland.
