Between My Ears

Stricken by a mortal fear
that it’s just a dream that’s put me here
that everything I thought was real
is just a way I want to feel
that nothing ever happened
and nothing ever will
beyond the space between my ears
I desperately want to fill

but I don’t think I’m sick enough
to dream a world with too little love
there’d be no ugly if it were my choice
we’d all sing with an angel’s voice
so I guess there is a reality
though it may not be what we want to see
full of victories and defeats
tears and joy, bitter and sweet

It takes courage and faith
to go that mile
and an eye for the beauty
that makes it worthwhile
