Siren Song

Someday dreams and someday promises
Are they only illusions, tell me what do they mean?
Someday will come there is no stopping it
But I have no conception of what it will bring
Passing through days in a state of anxiety
Fighting the panic that burns in my soul
Afraid to believe in some distant tranquility
Troubled by doubts I can't seem to let go

Someday dreams and someday promises
Are they only imaginings destined to die?
Someday will come there is no stopping it
But do I seek for treasures that I'll never find?
Waging a daily battle with uncertainty
Caught in a war between what can and can't be
Weak in the knowledge of my own inability
To unlock the secret, to discover the key

What do you see past the edge of reality?
Can intuitive powers transcend even time?
What magical scenes, what visions of mystery
Play with your thoughts and dance in your eyes?

Help me escape from this cloak of futility
Give me a glimpse of your mystical sight
Spin me a tale of grand possibilities
Call forth my spirit and prepare it for flight

Someday dreams and someday promises
Hope for tomorrow, impatient to be
Someday will come there is no stopping it
With a voice of enchantment it beckons to me
Now it seems I hear a call in the siren song
Pulling my spirit through the bright, shining air
I rise to the heights, my vision is clearing
Reality's edge is looming ever so near
