Let Me Dream

Allow me to bask into a deep slumber
please don't awake me
it's already bad enough
that the world has raped me
won't you let me live
in a private fantasy?
while laying in the comfort
of a beautiful canopy
don't interrupt me
just let me be
I don't wanna have to face
the reality behind the scenes
my heart only sees what I want it to see
you act like it's obscene
I am the author of the script
I wrote the lines now read between
put down your bow and arrow
and just let me dream
when I'm down I like to fly
freely into the light
I don't like to be kept in the dark
and caged up in fright
don't put me down because
I compliment your beauty
by blinding me with visions of a person
opposite of what I do see
I mean what do you expect me to say
this isn't an act we're not in a play
I don't wanna have to face
the reality behind the scenes
my heart only sees what I want it to see
you act like it's obscene
I am the author of the script
I wrote the lines now read between
put down your bow and arrow
and just let me dream
I don't mean to scare you
but I like what I see
and it doesn't help at all when you're drowning
in oceans of insecurity
at the end of the day
it all remains
as just another dream
I don't wanna have to face
the reality behind the scenes
my heart only sees what I want it to see
you act like it's obscene
I am the author of the script
I wrote the lines now read between
put down your bow and arrow
and just let me dream
I don't wanna have to face
the reality behind the scenes
my heart only sees what I want it to see
you act like it's obscene
I am the author of the script
I wrote the lines now read between
put down your bow and arrow
and just let me dream
I wrote the lines now read between
put down your bow and arrow
and just let me dream
I wrote the lines now read between
put down your bow and arrow
and just let me dream
just let me dream
just let me dream

This seems like it could be a very good song. Was/is it? If not, I encourage you to maybe make it one.
