Lyrics to the songs on the "Dreamland" EP

Fall from grace

Dafni: vocals, acoustic guitar

Standing in the middle of it all,
Restless, you've got no place to run to.
Sitting on the edge of your seat each day,
You're faced with constant worry.
Force-field that evolves around you,
Boy, well that makes you pretty special.
Trying to find an image you can keep,
But don't you feel sometimes your shoes are getting too big for your feet?

Accolades and honors speak your name,
Your friends and colleagues bow before you.
Restless spirit burns inside you,
No brick wall could ever stand in your way.
And this fake plastic smile upon your face,
Keeping up appearances, fearful of the day you fall from grace.
Fearful of the day you fall from...

Tunnel vision that you keep,
Don't you see the light that stands before you?
Massively you stand above us all,
But nothing ever makes you happy.

Accolades and honors speak your name,
Your friends and colleagues bow before you.
Restless spirit burns inside you,
No brick wall could ever stand in your way.
And this fake plastic smile upon your face,
Keeping up appearances, fearful of the day you fall from grace.
Fearful of the day you fall from...
Fearful of the day you fall from grace.

Unraveling

Dafni: vocals, acoustic guitar

Beware, my heart is quite lazy,
To give you the love you deserve.
Frightened of blatant confession,
Unraveling my love for you.

Lying closely beside you,
Holding on to you with a longing.
And I know what I'm doing is wrong.
Unraveling my love for you.

Is there any wonder why I keep this silence?
Every day that goes by I'm lying to you.
Is there any wonder why I keep this silence?
Every day that goes by I'm lying to you.

Can you see me falling?
Can you see me fall, I dare say?
Can you see the tears I don't cry, not seen in my eyes?
Unraveling my love for you.

Sweetly, I will always adore you.
My heart holds you dearly within me.
For now I will keep to myself.
Unraveling my love for you.

Same thing

Dafni: vocals, acoustic guitar

Could someone please tell me if this page is black or white?
Forgive me if I'm saying something wrong because I'm trying to be polite.
I could ask you to the movies and you say, "That's fine, I might do."
I could make a funny face, act like a God-damned fool.

But it's gonna be the same thing, no matter what I do.
And it's gonna be the same thing, no matter what I do.

Nothing seems to faze you, you just don't get a clue.
Haven't even noticed the funny little way I've been looking at you.
Like talking to a lamppost shining in the middle of the night.
Waiting for the moment and now the time is, oh, so right.

I've been trying for the longest time,
Trying to make you see.
I've been trying for the longest time,
Trying to make you see.
But it's gonna be the same thing, no matter what I do.
Yes, it's gonna be the same thing, no matter what I do.
All over and over and over again,
And over and over and over again.

Dreamland

Dafni: vocals, acoustic guitar

I had a dream that I was floating on the water.
The sun was shining brightly upon my face.
The current slowly taking me out to the sea,
To a place in which I've never been.

I had a surge of indescribable freedom,
Sitting on the beach painting pictures of the moon.
As I reached out to have a sip of my martini,
The sun was rising when I opened my eyes.

Take me to a fairytale land, just for a little while.
A place where I could live, deep in my subconscious.
There are no barriers, only just a little peace of mind.
Take me to a place called dreamland.

I had a dream that I was running in the evening,
Brightly colored rainbow emerged across the sky.
The rain was falling when I thought I was awakened.
Last I saw a shadow when I opened my eyes.
Opened up my eyes.

Lay me gently down to sleep.

Why won't you take me to a fairytale land, just for a little while.
A place where I could live, deep in my subconscious.
There are no barriers, only just a little peace of mind.
Take me to a place called dreamland.
