I picture us together
Framed in gold leaf
On the mantle with the others
One big happy family
But that snapshot can't be found
And I don't trust my memory

[Chorus:]
But it's alright it's alright
For a dream

I imagine we are gathered
But this time not dressed in black
There's laughing and smiling
Not stabbing in the back
But it's too good to be true
And too bad I still recall the screams

[Chorus:]

I keep half the picture
Mostly in my mind
Mama dressed in white
Ripped when she held your hand
Showing no signs of age
Just slightly frayed along the seam

[Chorus:]

It's alright
All that I can claim
It's alright
And it will have to do
It's alright
Better than the pain
It's alright
Better than the truth
It's alright
Alright for a dream
It's alright
Better than fate and the great scheme
It's alright
It's alright

For Christmas and for New Year
I wish and I resolve
But I'm disappointed by myself Jesus and Santa Claus
I want to believe
She's been saved
And he's be redeemed

And it's alright it's alright
For a dream
