The dream explores the unconsciousness...

lyrics

Monte Carlo

I was gazing the sea and it gazed back
In the form of memories.
And while the waves would go up,
They were washing me down
And while they were washing down
They were drying me up.

Found myself in bay
Where the seagulls talked like gentlemen,
But when I asked where I was
They asked me the same
So when they asked me the same
I knew where I was.

Then I met a girl out there,
That said she’d known me from somewhere,
Who wore a gown with purple strings
And while we’re sitting in my dreams,
In Monte Carlo we gambled
And trimmed aside our upper class pride!

So I was clearly asleep in this world
But somewhere in another space,
I was drinking my tea
With princes and thieves
And it felt real to me
So why shouldn’t it be?

Blessed are those who can dream
In a world where it seems
That everybody just shows what’s wrong!
When in reality you can be free
And be yourself!

So I saw that girl again
A mere imaginary friend.
She had the sweetest way to be
And while we’re watching the Grand-Prix,
In Monte Carlo we gambled
And trimmed aside our upper class pride!


And sometimes I close my eyes
And go back there to realize,
This world means more than we all know,
This girl was more than what she showed!
In Monte Carlo we gambled
And trimmed aside our upper class pride!
And we stood by for it one more afternoon!
