Before the Dream

Before the Dream

Isn’t it worse
Before it gets better
Always a first
Before second moves
Isn’t there always
A setback or two
Before the dream you
Dared to dream
Can come true
Isn’t it awful
Before it gets good
Often unlawful
Before there’s a should
Isn’t there always
A way to undo
Before the dream you
Dared to dream
Can come true
Isn’t there somewhere
A book or a hand guide
Map ahead
Or a fairy tale
Something out there
A look or a handshake
To show you the road
To billow your sail
Isn’t there always
A person or two
Who’ll hear and help
The dream you dared to dream
To come true
Isn’t it harder
Before it gets easy
Aren’t there roadblocks
Before the releases
Isn’t there always
A failure or two
Before the dream
You dared to dream
Can come true
Isn’t it crazy
Before it gets sane
Just a bit off
Before the right lane
Isn’t there always
A feeling of blue
Before the dream
You dared to dream
Can come true
Isn’t there somewhere
A fact or a fable
Fantasy
Or a fairy tale
Some kind of act
To make you more able
To stay on that road
To billow your sail
Isn’t there always
A person or two
Who’ll hear and help
The dream you dared to dream
To come true
