lyrics

My eyes dart open
My breathing's heavy
It was one of those nights
For me
I saw your face again
So close to mine again
It wasn't a dream
You see


Look at all the denizens
Of the world around us
Do you think they feel
The same as you?
Did they see what I saw
In a magic floating castle
In a bungalow galaxy
For two

Maybe it came true
In a parallel universe
Maybe it worked out
After all
Maybe I got the girl
Maybe I saved the world
In a parallel universe

The possibilities are endless
If you imagine hard enough
You can solve any problem
If you try
It can all go right
Or all go wrong
Within the safety of your mind

These experiments
They are expensive
The costs are growing far too high
But if I spend enough
I could reach Nirvana
Or at least that castle in the sky

Maybe it came true
In a parallel universe
Maybe it worked out
After all
Maybe I got the girl
Maybe I saved the world
In a parallel universe

Parallels - kisses and touch - try putting them next together: a pair of L’s
living on Rumplstilskin: fairy tails
Get me some dust so I can Peter Pan away from hell
I think I lost my marbles: Toodles and won’t come back to land unless I fell
Head in the clouds I can only see heaven for miles
in nine months an extra mouth
that’s forever squeeze them lil fingers and toes lil man so clever
but that’s another day in the future close to my chest I hold
when I close my eyes and wake up will I believe the story the dreams told?
it never gets old
plunging into darkness feeling gravity so deep in my soul my flesh wakes
the same reality I see in the absence of light can it be real and not be fake?
I can’t shake that I would hate…if I was wrong
but maybe my happy is an aberration and the birth works out wit a lil’ patience
put a lil’ light and a smile on my face -in- a parallel universe

With open eyes
I travel to the place
Where everything is right
But somehow I'm still wrong
And then I see him
Over on the hill
Serenade the sky
With a thousand tearful songs

And then I hear him say:

“Maybe I was wrong
in a parallel universe
maybe it worked out
for you
maybe you got the girl
maybe you saved the world
in a parallel universe
maybe you got the girl
maybe you saved the world
in a parallel universe"
