Imitation Dreams gaat over het moment waarop je je als volwassene realiseerd dat sommige van je beste jeugdherinneringen niet zo magisch zijn als je aanvankelijk dacht.

 

“Imitation Dreams”
Music and Lyrics by: Walter Scarborough

Lights on, I’m ready to start
I feel like I’m falling apart
She looks away as I pass her by
And we breath a collective sigh
Don’t make ‘em like they used to be
Shallow promises and childhood dreams
Hallmark hellos and broken things
All this for you and me

Conscience aches
Hearts break
Things seem inbetween
When I look back I realize
The best moments passed before my eyes

Things aren’t what they seem
Truth’s not what it means
Imitation dreams

Lights off, I’m ready to quit
I feel I’ve had enough of it
Some things aren’t what they seem
And these are imitation dreams
Why is this so hard
Broken memories will leave you scarred
Recycle bad with the best
Put nightmares back to rest

Conscience aches
Hearts break
Things seem inbetween
When I look back I realize
The best moments passed before my eyes

Things aren’t what they seem
Truth’s not what it means
Imitation dreams

*(Bridge)

Things aren’t what they seem
Truth’s not what it means
Imitation dreams

We’ve come back to the start
Can’t bear the baggage in your heart
Baby, you’re so blue
And maybe I am too
Maybe I am too
