Leave Me Here To Dream (song lyrics)

I cannot see my way
Without you beside me
There's no future left
No future, without you

I’ve lost you forever

I’m here all alone

Future is empty

My path is unknown



I don't want to wake
Leave me here to dream
Don't want the day, the day to begin


Your smile, was my light
And now you are gone
Like a flower that died
Without any sun



I don’t want to wake
Leave me here to dream
Don't want the day, the day to begin


A guitar without strings

Your music has stopped
But my memories, they cling 
They’re all that I’ve got

I’m a stream without water

Tears just don’t flow

the river I've cried 

Has emptied my soul



I don't want to wake
Leave me here to dream
Don't want the day, the day to begin


Come back to see me
If only in my sleep
Let me know what it's like
Beyond this world, as I weep


I'll wait for you

I'll wait for you

At least

Please, wait for me.

      One day that waiting will stop and the strings will be back on that guitar and that love will return.

              So now we want to hear the recorded song. Its great to have a song of yours recorded. Your lyrics should work well.
              Blowing my own trumpet (sax acually) on 1st sept 2017 i posted a recoeding of one of my songs on MPS with me on sax, its called pictures - have a giggle. I hope yours turns out more professionally done.

              • Teddy.15

                I'm sure you're is wonderful Dusk, as for.mine I have to an up and coming artist who really appreciated it on borrow of course,.we.nevwr know. thank you

                • dusk arising

                  I thought you'd dig it out of the MPS archive (page 27 on the list of my poems on my profile page) and give it a whirl.... the lyrics I have to say I was rather pleased with and the singer was exceptional but disappeared into the night.

                  Well penned Teddy. A very emotional write and experience.

                • Teddy.15

                  Thank you very much dear friend.

                • myself and me

                  Congratulations. Can't wait to hear the song. Please do let me know when it is released. A master piece.

                  • Teddy.15

                    I truly thank you for your kind support, I have no idea if it will ever be released officially but there is an amazing young singer involved now. I hope mainly it may give her The break she disserves I suppose original material is hard to get hold of as a singer. Thanks again, the most pleasure I can ever have as a writer is to know when someone loves my work.

                  • Joe Dawson

                    All the hallmarks of a good song are present here, all the best songs come from the heart and the occasional tear. Good luck. Joe

                    • Teddy.15

                      Dear Joe, well to have a live musician here on my page I can't tell you how Humes I am today. I can only say a life long ambition came true naturally with this, it just came out one day when I was sitting on my computer searching for a new job. Thank you Sir. Truly I'm honoured.

                    • Teddy.15

                      Was meant to write humbled not humed
