Mum read you see the same stars
So I will pick the brightest one

I make a wish and hold it dear
When I awake you will be near
To let me know its safe for dreams
'Cause for me, for now it seems to

Bring about your demise
The darkness whispers wicked lies
That seem true through shattered eyes
I'm not ready for goodbyes
So please be here when I wake up

I've seen your grave one thousand times
In foreign sands beneath red skies

My dreams are filled with smoke and flames
From inside these window pane
I watch your war on TV
And the fears grow inside me

But I know that dreams aren't real
So I close my eyes to make the worst untrue
So come nightmare, come to me
Keep your horrors from reality

Fill my night with fear
These nightmares insincere
I will try to be brave
If Daddy, you will come home
