Track Name: The Man She'll Never Know
Last night I dreamt your mind was quick like mine
The same age you were when you came and across the tide
The same age you were when you started a life in a place you’d never been
Last night I dreamt your mind was young again

Last night I dreamt your mind was sharp as steel
Before memories were something disease could steal
Before you were stuck inside yourself not knowing how to feel
I woke up hoping last night’s dream was real

And I write,
And hope the words out live my memory
Can you tell a story to me?
And I write,
To show the world the simple life I lead
Will you tell my story for me?

Last night I dreamt you showed up at my house
The one you raised my dad in, but I live in it now
You re-arranged my furniture to the way it was back then
Last night I dreamt your mind was young again

And I write,
And hope the words out live my memory
Can you tell a story to me?
And I write,
To show the world the simple life I lead
Will you tell my story for me?

And I write…

Last night I made sure I would sleep all night
In case you wanted to slip into my mind
I promise ti the day I die, your love will stay alive
Last night I dreamt but you did not arrive
