  • Have you ever felt the future is the past
    But you don't know how?
    A reflected dream of a captured time
    Is it really now? Is it really happening?

    Don't know why I feel this way
    Have I dreamt this time, this place?
    Something vivid comes again into my mind
    And I think I've seen your face
    Seen this room, been in this place
    Something vivid comes again into my mind

    All my hopes and expectations
    Looking for an explanation
    Have I found my destination?
    I just can't take no more

    The dream is true, the dream is true
    The dream is true, the dream is true

    Think I've heard your voice before
    Think I've said these words before
    Something makes me feel I just might lose my mind
    Am I still inside my dream?
    Is this a new reality?
    Something makes me feel that I have lost my mind

    All my hopes and expectations
    Looking for an explanation
    Coming to the realization
    That I can't see for sure

    I only dream in black and white
    I only dream 'cause I'm alive
    I only dream in black and white
    To save me from myself
    I only dream in black and white
    I only dream 'cause I'm alive
    I only dream in black and white
    Please save me from myself

    The dream is true, the dream is true
    The dream is true, the dream is true

    I get up, put on the light
    Dreading the oncoming night
    Scared to fall asleep and dream the dream again
    Nothing that I contemplate
    Nothing that I can compare
    To letting loose the demons deep inside my head

    Dread to think what might be stirring
    That my dream is reoccurring
    Got to keep away from drifting
    Saving me from myself

    I only dream in black and white
    I only dream 'cause I'm alive
    I only dream in black and white
    To save me from myself
    I only dream in black and white
    I only dream 'cause I'm alive
    I only dream in black and white
    To save me from myself

    Lost in a dream of mirrors
    Lost in a paradox
    Lost and time is spinning
    Lost a nightmare I retrace

    Lost a hell that I revisit
    Lost another time and place
    Lost a parallel existence
    Lost a nightmare I retrace

    I only dream in black and white
    I only dream 'cause I'm alive
    I only dream in black and white
    To save me from myself
    I only dream in black and white
    I only dream 'cause I'm alive
    I only dream in black and white
    To save me from myself

    Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh
    Oh-oh-oh, oh
    Oh-oh-oh, oh, oh

    Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh
    Oh-oh-oh, oh
    Oh-oh-oh, oh, oh

    I only dream in black and white
    I only dream 'cause I'm alive
    I only dream in black and white
    To save me from myself
    I only dream in black and white
    I only dream 'cause I'm alive
    I only dream in black and white
    To save me from myself

    The dream is true, the dream is true
    The dream is true, the dream is true Writer/s: Janick Gers, Stephen Percy Harris
