 Woke up on a good day
 And the world was wonderful
 A midnight summer dream had me in its spell

 I dreamed about an old man
 Sat and watched the rain all night
 He couldn't sleep a wink as all the drops fell

 He told me of the beauty
 Hidden in our foreheads
 He told me of the ugliness
 We show instead

 And when we put a foot wrong do we learn
 From all the pain
 A midnight summer dream as he watched the rain

 Then at midnight he poured another drink
 And bent my ear
 After midnight we sat up half the night
 Or maybe more
 And he began to tell me what it was all for

 I woke up in an armchair
 He had gone I don't know where
 Left me there to sit and look at the rain

 Don't remember much at all
 But his words were echoing
 A midnight summer dream and then wake again

 Maybe I'll never find him
 Maybe he's gone forever
 Maybe I'll have to sit here
 Watching the weather

 One thing's pretty certain helped me
 Make it in the night
 Showed me somewhere else between wrong and right

 And at midnight if you can't sleep
 Then I can bend your ear
 After midnight we'll sit up half the night
 Or maybe more
 And I'll begin to tell you what it is all for

 Wake up on a good day
 And the world feels wonderful
 Midnight summer dream has me in its spell

Πολλά dreams βλέπετε! Όχι και summer από τώρα! Μας έχει πιάσει που μας έχει πιάσει η κατάθλιψη...

Λεοντόψυχη, σταματήστε πια να λιβανίζετε την κατάθλιψη. Έχει κι άλλα πράγματα αυτή η ζωή για να ασχοληθείτε.

Η λέξη «κατάθλιψη» τρώει ban από το φόρουμ για το επόμενο 15ήμερο (μαζί με όποιον την ξεστομίσει). Κανόνισε την πορεία σου.
