He slept a summer by my side. He filled mydays with endless wonder. He took my childhood in his stride, but he was gonewhen autumn came. And still I dream he'll come to me, that we will live theyears together. But there are dreams that can not be. And there are storms wecan not weather.
I love him. But every day I'm learning. Allmy life, I've only been pretending. Without him, his world will go on turning.A world that's full of happiness that I have never known. I love him, but onlyon my own.
I had a dream my life would be, sodifferent from this hell I'm living, so different now from what it seemed! Nowlife has killed the dream I dreamed.
And I know it's only in my mind. That I'mtalking to myself and not to him, and although I know that he is blind. Still Isay there's a way for us. I love him. But when the night is over, he is gone,the river's just a river. Without him, the world around me changes. The treesare bare and everywhere, the streets are all full of strangers.
