Having one huge dream in your life, that you keep chasing. You're direly eager to see it transform into reality. But you end up thinking, maybe it's literally supposed to remain a dream

I’m just a dreamer

Sometimes, deep in the dead of the quiet nights

I have laid down my deep old plans quietly like the dead

Visions of that which is ought to be creep in, sneakily

Like a thief in the night they sneak into my quiet sleep

I’m clueless I’m just a thief stealing from beyond the steep

As I realize I’m already at the crack of dawn

I realize I cannot let my night’s vision down

I battle between pulling my visions to this time

Or dragging my being to the time of my vision

One way or another, the visual becomes clearer

I kick yesterday’s old, aching and tired corpse out of me 

And I breathe in a new determination into me

I begin to make that which is ought to be, be

People begin to call me a genius

O, dear you people, I’m just a dreamer!

A visionary who sees visions

I’m not even sure if my visions will wake me to reality

Any day now

And any night, for now,

I’m just a dreamer!
