about

Did you ever wish that someone in your life would return to you. You miss them so much that you dream about them. There were so much a part of you that you "breathe" them. That is what this song is about. Loss and a desperate desire to regain someone.

lyrics

The old man is crazy.
Just look in his eyes.
The sun makes him lazy.
As it sets in the sky.

He dreams of a women.
That he once knew.
Hair of gold.
And her eyes so blue.

Smoky old bar rooms.
Whiskey and rye.
His constant companion.
Since she said goodbye.

He sees her. He needs her
He breathes her. In his dreams.
He talks to her. There's no answer.
Just the old man and his dream.

Days without promise.
Nights without end.
His own doubting Thomas.
The drinks his best friend.

Searching his memory.
For someone he knew.
Clouded by whiskey.
He can not see through.

His eyesight is failing.
His heart's filled with scars
He sits on his barstool.
And lays his head on the bar.

And he sees her. And he needs her
He breathes her. In his dreams.
He talks to her. There's no answer.
Just the old man, so it seems...

He's the old man.
At the end of the bar...

Let him dream.

Let him dream.

Let him dream.
