So I was walking
there was a man walking his dog
And he smiled
I kept walking and there she was
The most beautiful girl
but then I saw something
Our future
A pretty little flower withering in the rain
So I walked past her
As I dropped my smile
There was a lake
It had the most beautiful breeze
I sat down thinking
And I saw everything falling
In front of me
And then the ground shook
And as I was too
I prayed
Then it was dark
Pitch dark
I woke up
sunlight in my eyes
Where Am I?
