The Nightmare

Piano Demo #1

Thrown down from the arms of sleep
She fell through the ivory morning
Deep into the waters of the one she called love

Well, you cannot know a dream
If you turn away
You don’t know
You never care
The night is not your friend
And you have not had her
The nightmare ends, but
She’ll never understand
Now, when you’re gone

She wake up
Calling out
And cry as she may
Anytime, anywhere
Blinded by the light of the day
Whoa
She has known the nightmare

So about the moon and her sisters
How are he take them prisoner
If she had flung out her heart against him
Then, in all her wisdom
That was the mystery to her

That was when the dream took her prisoner
She knew the dream was over, but
But, the nightmare was not over

Somewhere in her ancient ways
She walks through the night
And tries to get through the day
Some will never know or share any kind of dream…
But, the nightmare

The nightmare
Blinded by the light of the day
Blinded by the light of the day
She has known the nightmare
Well, she’d been blinded by the light of the day
She has known the nightmare

Dream on
Dream on

How dare he take them prisoner
Blinded by the light of the day
About the moon and her sisters
How dare he take them prisoner
Blinded by the light of the day
She known the nightmare
Blinded by the light of the day
She has known
She has known the nightmare

 

Piano Demo #2

Blinded by the light of the day
She has known
She was blinded by the light of the day

Thrown down from the arms of sleep
She fell through the ivory morning
Deep into the water of the one she called love

Well you cannot know a dream
If you turn away
You don’t know
You’ll never care
The night is not your friend
So you have not had her
The nightmare ends
But, she’ll never understand
And when you’re gone
She wakes up
Calling out as children do
And cry as she may

So about the moon and her sisters
How dare he take them prisoner
If I had flung out my heart against him
Then, in all of my wisdom
It was a mystery

That was when the dream took her prisoner
And she knew the dream was over
But, the nightmare was not over

Somewhere in her ancient ways
She walks through the night
And tries to get through the day
Some will never know or share
Any kind of dream….
But, the nightmare

Anytime
Blinded by the light of the day
Blinded by the light of the day
Dream on
She has known the nightmare
Oh…
Oh…
Blinded by the light of the day
She has known the nightmare
Oh…
Whoa…
She was blinded by the light of the day
Dream on, silly….dreamer

And they were blinded by the light of the day
But they have known
The nightmare
Blinded by the light of the day
They have known
Why did he take them…prisoner
Well, how dare he
Say to her, “dream on”
Silly…dreamer

She was blinded by the light
Blinded by the light of the day
Thrown down from the arms of love
She has known the nightmare

 

Alternate Mix

Thrown down through the arms of sleep
She fell through the ivory morning
Deep into the waters
Of the one she called love
She paled in the wake
Of what some call a dream
But, you cannot know a dream
Till you’ve known the nightmare

When I stood with you against the storm
And I tried once again
Well, I said, “I’d like to leave you
With something warm”
How many times
Drowning in the sea
Drowning in the sea

Well, that was when the dream took her prisoner
And she knew the dream was over
But the nightmare was not over

The nightmare…
No, the nightmare….

So about the moon and her sisters
How dare he take them prisoner
Well, if she had flung out her heart against him
Then in all of her wisdom
That was a mystery

And, that was when the dream took her prisoner
And she knew the dream was over
But the nightmare was not over
Somewhere in her ancient ways
Well, she walks through the night
And then she tries to get through the day
Some will never know
Or share any kind of dream…

But, the nightmare
No, the nightmare
Anytime
Anywhere
Blinded by the light of the day

Blinded by the light of the day
She was blinded by the light of the day
She was blinded by the light of the day
Blinded by the light of
Blinded by the light of
