The River of Dreams Lyrics

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
From the mountains of faith
To a river so deep
I must be looking for something
Something sacred I lost
But the river is wide
And it's too hard to cross

And even though I know the river...

    I know I'm searching for something
    Something so undefined
    That it can only be seen
    By the eyes of the blind

    Here's my interpretation: Every night... I have dreams... Of me being famous... And other things... I'm soul-searching... For something... But it's hard to understand them... I always try to though... Every night... I have dreams... Of scary things... And other things... I'm soul-searching... For something... That I lost... because of a scarring event... I don't want to have these dreams anymore... I might have them for the rest of my life... Every night... I have dreams... When I dont trust myself... And other things... I'm soul-searching... For something that can't be touched... That can't be seen with eyes... I never beleaved in God... But I hope I go to heaven... Every night... I have dreams... About the truth... And other things... The world is a dream... We start at the begining... Our dreams keep us going...
    Another thing. Right before the end, during the chorus, I can hear someone yelling, but I can't hear what she's saying.
