"Dreams of an Absolution" is a song from the video game Sonic the Hedgehog and is Bentley's artist debut. The original version was performed by Lee Brotherton, the birth name of Bentley Jones, and used as the main theme of Silver the Hedgehog, and featured on the compilation album Sonic the Hedgehog Vocal Traxx: Several Wills. Several different versions and remixes of this song have been composed by Bentley Jones. Known versions of "DOAA" include the in-game original, an unused instrumental, the Nightlight Remix, the K-Klub Remix, the LB vs. JS Remix, and the 2011 version from the bi-lingual album TRANS//LATION 2. A ballad version of "Dreams of an Absolution" was performed live at the Summer Of Sonic 2008 event. During the first set of Summer Of Sonic 2009, there was a "DOAA" competition where the audience sang "DOAA" while Bentley and Svend Joscelyne (Dreadknux) picked three participants to perform "DOAA" on stage, a prize being awarded to the audience's favourite singer. An acoustic version was performed live during the second set of the Summer Of Sonic 2009 event with Nick Jennison performing the guitars. A new version of "DOAA" was going to be featured on Bentley's debut album One Hand High, however, production of the album was cancelled. A demo of the One Hand High version of "DOAA" was leaked onto the internet.[1][2]

In the nightlight, do you see what you dream?
All your troubles, are they all what they seem?
Look around you, then you may realize
All the preachers, all with their lies

And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if you'll be together
Only you know if we shall last

In the nightlight, do you still feel your pain?
For the valour, you wait, it never came
If you were able, would you go change the past?
To mend a faux pas with one last chance

And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if you'll be together tonight

Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution

Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

In the nightlight, do you see what you dream?
All your triumph, and all you'll ever be
Look around you, then you may realize
Happiness lies trapped in misery

And who knows what of our future
We can all try to change the past
Only you know if you'll be together tonight

Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution

Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution

Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

And you'll see (and you'll see)
What you'll be (what you'll be)
And you'll see (and you'll see)
All you can be (all you can be)
Oh (oh)

Cause every night (every night)
And every night (and every night)
And every night (and every night)
I will dream (I will dream)

And you'll see (and you'll see)
(yeah) That this is my dream (all you can be)
And you'll see
Every night (all you can) (oh)
I will always dream (yeah)

Cause every night (every night)
And every night (and every night)
And every night (and every night)
I will dream (I will dream)

(Of an absolution)

In the nightlight do you see what you dream?
All your troubles, are they all what they seem?
Look around you then you may realize
All the preachers, all with their lies

And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if you'll be together
Only you know if we shall last

(Of an absolution)

In the nightlight do you still feel your pain?
For the valour you waited, it never came
If you were able, would you go change the past?
To mend a faux pas with one last chance

And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if we'll be together tonight

Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution

Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

(Of an absolution)

In the nightlight do you see what you dream?
All your triumphs and all you'll ever be?
Look around you then you may realize
Happiness lies, trapped in misery

And who knows what of our future?
We can all try to change the past
Only you know if we'll be together tonight

Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution

Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution

Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

And you'll see
What you'll be
And you'll see (Yeah)
All you can be (Oh)

Cause every night
And every night
And every night
I will dream

K-Klub Remix

In the nightlight (do you see what you dream?)
All your troubles; are they all what they seem?
Look around you (then you may realise)
All the preachers; all with their lies

And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if you’ll be together
Only you know if we shall last

In the nightlight (do you still feel your pain?)
For the valour; you wait, it never came
If you were able (would you go change the past?)
To mend a faux pas with one last chance

And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if you’ll be together tonight

Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution

Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution

In the nightlight (do you see what you dream?)
All your triumph and all you’ll ever be
Look around you (then you may realise)
Happiness lies trapped in misery

And whose knows what of our future
We can all try to change the past
Only you know if you'll be together tonight

Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you

Taken from TRANS//LATION 2

And every night, I lay awake, and I find no conclusion
Cause every night, it just stays the same
And I dream of an absolution

(of an absolution)

In the nightlight, do you see what you dream?
All your troubles, are they all what they seem?
Look around you, then you may realize
All the preachers, all with their lies

And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if you'll be together
Only you know if we shall last

(of an absolution)

In the nightlight, do you still feel your pain?
For the valour, you wait, it never came
If you were able, would you go change the past?
To mend a faux pas with one last chance

And I might know of our future
But then you still control the past
Only you know if you'll be together tonight

Cause every night I will save your life
And every night I will be with you
Cause every night I still lay awake
And I dream of an absolution

Cause every night I will make it right
And every night I will come to you
But every night it just stays the same
In my dream of an absolution
