Better Days Are Coming

If you fear losing somebody you love
like rejection would be no surprise
even if they never said it out loud
you just knew by the look in their eyes
accept that anxiety is due to some action
we took while sleepwalking through life
we would be lying if we tried denying
we cause our own misery and strife.

There is a voice inside of our heads
that tells us of what is to come
deja vu turned upside down
is what it may seem like to some
whether it’s foresight or just premonition
it leaves you feeling quite strange
whisper or shout, it allows for no doubt
that your fortunes are due for a change.

The cyclical nature of the human condition
prevents us from being at ease
it bars the door to the peace that we seek
it’s a lock without any keys
hope and fear are two sides of a coin
a little like Abel and Cane
it’s not every day that just one will hold sway
in the end it adds up to the same.

Listen to this then, if you should find
your emotions won’t give you a breather
I’m telling you, dreams don’t often come true
but the nightmares rarely do either.
