I went down to Rent-A-Dream
To see what they had left

And found the shining shelves agleam
And drooping with the heft

Of all the unused dreams they had
That people pawned for cheap

And so I looked for one to add
I could watch while I sleep

And I found dreams of riches, and
I found dreams of desire

I found dreams of deeper love, and
Dreams of flying higher

It made me sad to realize
That, great as all this seems:

It only happened because
People gave up on their dreams
