Lyrics

Dream So Real, A (Lyrics)

First played on 08.26.07 which is what these lyrics are taken from. The lyrics to the second regular verse were based fairly substantially on a few two step intros earlier in the tour.

08.26.07

falling hard
falling fast
somehow land with both feet on the ground
a dream so real
so inspired
i can still smell the smoke and the fire
what i fear
what I fear
the most unthinkable thing
is that somehow
i will never
again feel my arms around you

oh, when im gone
and lost
so far away
try to? remember sometimes
the way i make you laugh, and make you smile
little things keep me goin'

a little boy with broken arms
he used to dream
that he could fly
a dream so real
so inpired
he jumped from the top of the stairs
for a moment he was there
wings spread, wide as the sky
but then of course, the world pulled him down
he crash landed
on the ground

oh, when im gone
feelin' lost and far away
try to remember sometimes
im gonna fall before I fly
little things keep me goin'

with every step
we were sure
what the next step should be
well then at least we could be sure
how we ended up here

how we ended up here

oh, when im gone
feelin' lost to far away
try to remember sometimes
im gonna fall before i fly
little things keep me goin'

keep me goin'

Falling hard, falling fast 
somehow landing both feet on the ground 
a dream so real, so inspired 
still smell the smoke and the fire 
when I'm gone, what I fear 
the most unthinkable thing 
is that somehow I will never 
again feel my arms around you 

Oh, when I'm gone, feel lost too far away 
I try remember your eyes 
make you laugh or make you smile 
little things that keep me going 
a little boy with broken arms 
he used to dream that he could fly 
a dream so real but he believed 
and jumped from the top of the stairs 

For a moment he was there 
wings spread wide as the sky 
but then of course, the world pulled him down 
crash landing on the ground 

Oh, when I'm gone, lost too far away 
I try remember sometimes 
you're going to fumble before you find 
little things that get you by 

If every step, we were sure 
what the next step would be 
well then at least we could know 
how we ended up here 

What would change if we were sure 
how we ended up here? 

Oh, when I'm lost, you're gone too far away 
try remember sometimes 
you're going to fumble 'til you find 
little things that get you by 
get you by

Falling hard 
Falling fast 
Somehow land with both feet on the ground 
A dream so real 
So inspired 
I can still smell the smoke and the fire 

When I'm gone 
What I fear 
Most unthinkable thing 
Is that somehow I will never 
Again feel my arms around you 

Oh, when I'm gone 
I feel lost 
Too far away 
Try remember some times 
Gonna fumble till I find 
Little things that keep me goin' 

A little boy with broken arms 
He used to dream 
That he could fly 
A dream so real 
That he believed 
And he jumped from the top of the stairs 

For a moment he was there 
Wings spread, wide as the sky 
But then of course 
The world pulled him down 
Crash landed on the ground 

Oh, when I'm gone 
Feel lost 
Too far away 
Try remember some times 
Gonna fumble till I find 
Little things keep me goin' 

Oh, when I'm gone 
Feel lost 
Too far away 
I try remember some time 
Gonna fumble till I find 
These little things that keep me goin' 

With every step 
If we were sure 
What the next step could be 
Then of course 
We would know 
Just how we ended up here 

Then we could know how we ended up here 

Oh, when I'm gone 
If I feel lost 
Too far away 
Try to remember sometimes 
Gonna fumble till I find 
Little things keep me goin' 

Little things 
That keep me goin'
