Daylight took your body
Took your, your army
Justifies like a bruise
Cost you all you had to lose

Dream away, dream away
Dream away, dream away

You play like none do
A game of numbers

Promises to keep
As far as the eyes can reach
A game of luck that I would choose
A game of light that I would lose

Dream away, dream away
A game of numbers
Will take us under, go

You would leave me under you oath
Blazing thunder at all
You leave me under the sun
And I’ll
Dream, I see
Dream, I see

Daylight can take your body
Can take your mind and your beliefs
Like a thread from a spool
Close your eyes before you lose

Dream away, dream away (time, time)
A game of numbers
Will take us under

You would leave me under oath
Blazing thunder at all
You leave me under the sun

And I’ll dream, I see
Dream of the sea
