Song Meaning
Verse 1
Have you ever felt the future is the past, but you don't know how?
A reflected dream of a captured time, is it really now, is it really happening?
Verse 2
Don't know why I feel this way, have I dreamt this time, this place?
Something vivid comes again into my mind
And I think I've seen your face, seen this room, been in this place
Something vivid comes again into my mind
Verse 3
All my hopes and expectations, looking for an explanation
Have I found my destination? I just can't take no more
Verse 4
The dream is true, the dream is true
The dream is true, the dream is true
Verse 5
Think I've heard your voice before, think I've said these words before
Something makes me feel I just might lose my mind
Am I still inside my dream? Is this a new reality
Something makes me feel that I have lost my mind
Verse 6
All my hopes and expectations, looking for an explanation
Coming to the realization that I can't see for sure
Verse 7
I only dream in black and white, I only dream cause I'm alive
I only dream in black and white, to save me from myself
I only dream in black and white, I only dream cause I'm alive
I only dream in black and white, please save me from myself
Verse 8
The dream is true, the dream is true
The dream is true, the dream is true
Verse 9
I get up put on the light, dreading the oncoming night
Scared to fall asleep and dream the dream again
Nothing that I contemplate, nothing that I can compare
To letting loose the demons deep inside my head
Verse 10
Dread to think what might be stirring, that my dream is reoccurring
Got to keep away from drifting, saving me from myself
Verse 11
I only dream in black and white, I only dream cause I'm alive
I only dream in black and white, to save me from myself
I only dream in black and white, I only dream cause I'm alive
I only dream in black and white, to save me from myself
Verse 12
Lost in a dream of mirrors, lost in a paradox
Lost and time is spinning, lost a nightmare I retrace
Lost a hell that I revisit, lost another time and place
Lost a parallel existence, lost a nightmare I retrace
Verse 13
I only dream in black and white, I only dream cause I'm alive
I only dream in black and white, to save me from myself
I only dream in black and white, I only dream cause I'm alive
I only dream in black and white, to save me from myself
Verse 14
I only dream in black and white, I only dream cause I'm alive
I only dream in black and white, to save me from myself
I only dream in black and white, I only dream cause I'm alive
I only dream in black and white, to save me from myself
Verse 15
The dream is true, the dream is true
The dream is true, the dream is true
