Em9* = xx2002 ; Em7* = xx203x ]
Intro: / G* G9* G* G9* / Em9* Em7* Em9* Em7* / :
Hush now don't you cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye
You're lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream spinning in your head
/ G* G9* G* G9* / Em9* Em7* Em9* Em7* / :
   Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
   Of someone close to you leaving the game, of life
   So here it is, another chance
   Wide awake, you face the day, your dream is over -
   / C Csus2 C Csus2 / Am7 Am7sus4 Am7 Am7sus4 / : ( G5 )
Or has it just begun
/ G Gsus2 G Gsus2 Em9 Em7 Em9 Em7 / (standard open chords start here)
There's a place I like to hide
A doorway that I run through in the night
Relax child, you were there
But only didn't realize, and you were scared
/ G Gsus2 G Gsus2 / Em9 Em7 Em9 Em7 / :
   It's a place where you will learn
   To face your fears, retrace the years, and ride the whims of your mind
   Commanding in another world
   Suddenly, you'll hear and see this magic new dimension
I... will be watching over you
I... am gonna help you see it through
I... will protect you in the night
I... am smiling next to you, in silent lucidity
/ D - C - / / / D - C... / G* G9* G* G9* /
/ Eb Ebsus2 Eb Ebsus2 Csus2 C Csus2 C / /
Visualize your dream
Record it in the present tense
Put it into a permanent form
If you persist in your efforts
You can achieve a dream control
Dream control, dream control, dream control, dream control, dream control
Help me
/ Csus2 C Amsus4 Am / : / G - /
If you open your mind for me
You won't rely on open eyes to see
The walls you built within
Come tumbling down and a new world will begin

   Living twice at once you learn
   You're safe from pain in the dream domain, a soul set free to fly
   A round trip journey in your head
   Master of illusion, can you realize your dream's alive, you can be the guide but
{Refrain, without "in silent lucidity"}
