Sometimes Dreams Are Better Off Not Real

Music: Ground.
By William Byrd. Sequenced by
John Sankey.

Sometimes dreams are better off not real.
Old yearnings drain away through open gates.
Regretfully I tell you how I feel,
Returning both of us to former states,
Yet with wounds that time will have to heal.
