little dreams

i never meant to know this much
now my wound is raw to touch
patience is wearing thin
do i expect too much?

i was looking for salvation
to free my spirit give me wings
past oppression to elation
are these such little dreams?

what do all these words mean? let you in and let you go
what am i looking for? i must find in my soul

whose to judge and whose to blame
must i wear this cross of shame?
crying out for love in my pain
how long must i repent and pay?

what do all these words mean? let me in and let me go
what are we looking for? we must find in our souls

i call you up to come down
to peace in this heartland
now you see right through me
but do you understand?

i am looking for salvation
to free me spirit give me wings
past oppression to elation
are these such little dreams?
are these little dreams?
little dreams little dreams
