lyrics and music by Nathan Davis

Are you really there?
Are you just a dream?
I thought you were in there somewhere, hiding from me,
Hiding from the world.

Beauty in your eyes
Cut away the ties
That bound the things I'd always wished to say,
But never could until today.

I can't believe you're real;
Years of this thing burning in me still
Takes my breath away.

You were born to smile,
Look for something new;
And I was born to take my chances,
Fall in love with you for all our lives,
Until the end of time.

And I'll be here, not far away;
I'll be here, not far away;
You will see someday.

Are you really there?
Are you just a dream?
I thought you were in there somewhere, hiding from me,
Hiding from the world
Above you.

The version of this song on the player was recorded after a gig late one night (early one morning?) with Nathan, Austin Alexander (guitar), John Henry Trinko (keyboard), and Kerstin Hanson and Shannon Gunn on vocals.
