Maybe memories of my childhood Locked in the back of my mind Waiting for this dream Lost visions to find Rubbing my eyes I feel wide-awake Looking out my window I see a chink of light As dawn starts to break Slowly the sky starts to lighten Pushing back the night An orange glow Bringing the day to life Dawn has awoken
