05. Living The Dream

On The Altar Of Love
by downhere


There's a guy, he's thinking about high school
Stuck reminiscing on the wonders of the glory days

There's a girl - day after her wedding
She doesn't feel any different than before in many ways

'Such is life,' you whisper passively
'Where did my dream go?'

This is not what I imagined
But this is real life in the trenches
And we are living the dream
Every day comes with the promise that
It could be great if you want it
And we are living the dream
We're living the dream

As for me, I'm singing a new song
I'm not gonna dwell inside some alternate reality

I feel free - I'm making the best of it
Seeing with eyes that find the heart and soul of true beauty

Cuz every breath can build up something
Tear it down, or just leave it be
What'll it be?

Those with the richest lives
That could be you and I
Let's answer the call to die
We could be satisfied

This is not what I imagined
But this is real life in the trenches
And we are living the dream
Every day Love makes the promise
That we can be great if we want it
And we are living the dream
Highs and lows we'll take on together
Choosing joy whatever the weather
Now we are living the dream
And this is the dream
