Woken Up

If only I knew
You are in a place
Where I can never hold you
I never would have woken up.

If only I knew
You’re the most beautiful girl
I can ever hope to see
I never would have woken up.

If only I knew
That when I saw you
Would be the last time…
I never would have woken up.

If only I knew
That what was
Was never meant to be
I never would have woken up.

If only I knew
What I dreamt
Would be just a dream
I never would have woken up.

If only I knew
That this was the dream
That I was to dream
I never would have gone to sleep.

Based on a wonderful dream I had last night and I cannot seem to get out of it.

Thanks to Navneet for the title.
