I'm afraid of waking up
Like Rip Van Winkle
To learn I've slept through my life,
as if was a dream,
I didn't live but I existed.
That's what I'm scared of.
Though everything isn't perfect,
I hope it's really happening
Because if this is a dream,
Broken hearts must hurt real bad in real life.

I'm afraid of waking up
Like Rip Van Winkle
To learn:
For the past few decades,
all I've done is grow a beard.

I feel like even though it's a strange thought, we are all scared of sleeping through our lives, and not doing anything. I feel like it gives you something to think about.
