“She knew the true shape of the world. All else was shadow and the sound of distant drums.” Patrick Rothfuss, The Slow Regard of Silent Things

I held you close to me
Once in a distant dream
Far from the shores of my fear
I sailed on the ocean where
All I imagined could happen
And now you are here

It’s so hard to touch
What is out of our hands
To know and to trust
What the heart understands

Only the ones who believe
Ever see that they dream
Ever dream what comes true

Life gives us magic and
Life brings us tragedy
Everyone suffers some loss
Still we have faith in it childlike hope
There’s a reason
That outweighs the cost

And gravity throws
All these rules in our way
And sometimes the spirit
Refuses to play

Only the ones who believe
Ever see what they dream
Ever dream what comes true

And oh, love
Turn me around in your arms
And in this dream we share
Let us not miss one kiss

And add my regrets
To the tears in the rain
For that’s what the color
Of roses contain

Only the ones who believe
Ever see what they dream, ever dream
Ever dream what comes true

Songwriters
BETH NIELSEN CHAPMAN, MATT ROLLINGS
