Its Not As If

Submitted by Marco on Fri, 04/01/2022 - 10:43

...since about three months now almost every night I'm dreaming of probably the most important woman in my life, eh... no, not my mother, you know, those dreams that are so nice that you don't wanna wake up from, or, when you do, you desperately wanna go back to sleep and continue dreaming (which never works, -sigh- ). I swear... almost every night nowadays!!!

So... I wrote a song about it. And of course I hope the dreams continue!

It's Not As If

Marco Akamawa

Even with my eyes wide open
I can see you right in front of me
Even with my heart in lockdown
Ooh I feel

Although you're not here
I can clearly hear you talking
Although you're not here

I'd feel so lost 
If I'd have to loose you again
I simply can't afford the pain

When at night I dream of you
Of both of us
Together, and in love
It's not as if I don't know
That dreams they aren't real

It's not as if I don't know
That when I wake up I'll 
Be on my own

I wanna go back to sleep again

I wanna go back to sleep again

Straight through a wall of time
Across an endless sea of memories
A million songs and a lifetime 
Away

Oooh I'll do anything, 
Even for that ghost of you
I'll do anything, anything, 
Anything 
Anything to make you stay

It's not as if I don't know
That dreams they aren't real

It's not as if I don't know
That ev'ry time I wake up
I'd wanna go
Back with you, Vanou
And dream again...
