LOST AT SEA
Awaken from sleep
Recalling another world
Which one is the dream?
Each breath a butterfly’s wing
Lacy … bearing me aloft

“Living in the middle of a mystery”
Ah! I could live in these lyrics…. (Thank you for this link also!)
I decided to share the source of the quotation and the song is worth listening to in its entirety I think.
It was! You’ve introduced me to a lot of songs and artists I’m not familiar with, for which I thank you! 🤗🎶
Is anyone sure they know which one is real? full / off
Just the ones who convince themselves or allow themselves to be convinced by others.
which one when one is awaking and those around one are sleeping
Perhaps we dream whether they are awake or asleep, or even if they are “really” there at all.
