So, last night I had this weird dream/nightmare. My dog had got out the front door. I was running after him. I had to save him or my bright red kia soul. Well, obviously I picked the dog, over materialistic car. Someone took my car and smashed all the windows. I said, this must be a nightmare, then someone said to me, "no you aren't sleeping"; I woke up much later to find it was a nightmare, because my fusion red kia soul was still parked out front untouched.

What are the meaning of dreams? Always wondered what they actually are.

Anyhow_

<1st verse>
Dreams,
What do they mean?
Is it when I look in your eyes?
I see a paradise.

<chorus>
Thank you God
for second chances
I've had so many new old beginnings
I wanna learn the steps to your dances


<2nd verse>
I think of you and smile
It hasn't been that way in awhile.
What did you do?
To make me want to be with nobody but you.

<chorus>
Thank you God
for second chances
I've had so many new old beginnings
I wanna learn the step to your dances

<bridge>
I stopped lying,
I feel like I'm flying.
I'm no longer crying,
I'm now trying
to reach my destiny
my full potential
get in my way,
plan a funeral.
so surreal
it is real

<chorus>
Thank you God
for second chances
I've had so many new old beginnings
I wanna learn the step to your dances

I wanna learn the step to your dances

Interesting things, dreams! Very, very occasionally I have realized, whilst dreaming, that I am dreaming, and when that happens you can steer the dream to an extent whichever way you want it to go. Nice, but rare.

I like your " new old beginnings" phrase. I'm not entirely sure what it means, but I feel like I ought to, and I like the sound of it. All the chorus is strong.

Your verses are short, so if you get this set to music, there will probably be a lot going on there musically to balance that. Then in the bridge you have those rapid fire lines as contrast. So some good dynamics there potentially.

Nice write!
