She Would Be You


If I were to build a woman

from my dreams

she would be you

But we both know that dreams aren’t real

even when they do come true

Dreams don’t have to obey laws

like gravity or

ticking time

There's nothing a man won't do

to break the law when love’s the crime

Love is not an empty word

an empty thought

an empty dream

Love is an unruly beast

that's made of gold and gasoline

If I were to build a dream

and fill it up with

all of you

We both know the dream will end

like you, my friend

and like me too
