Dream In A Teacup by Donnie Morrissette


Dream In A Teacup


It's a dream in a teacup, it's a laugh on a spoon,
It's the vacant space between me and the moon,
It's the shoes on my feet and the hat on my head,
it's the people alive and even the ones that are dead,
because they're pushing up daisies and they make the world pretty today.


It's the milk in her coffee and the sugar in her tea,
When she likes coffee black and her tea bittersweet,
It's the sign that points right when you know you're going wrong,
And all the ridiculous things that you can fit into a song,
At first it doesn't make sense, but if you give it a chance you can say:


Everything is unexplained,
The universe is just a mystery game,
The dream in the teacup could be a nightmare in the tea,
Add a little sugar you might make the ends meet.


It's a page from the bible and a hypothesis,
From an unsettled priest and a mad scientist,
it's the childish craving for a packet of sweets,
But thats a whole lot of sugar just to make the ends meet,
It's overestimating just to satisfy the craving to say:


Everything is unexplained,
The universe is just a mystery game,
The dream in the teacup could be a nightmare in the tea,
Add a little sugar you might make the ends meet.
