Lyircs of the song here. The part I want to ask about is:
- Is there a postposition or postpositional phrase which allows one to say that whatever follows is an event from the dream, rather than something happening as the speaker is dreaming the dream? For example, if I said "Kurikaeshi miru yume no naka de me ga samete miru", would that mean that the waking up is happening inside the dream, or still that I'm waking up from the dream?
- I was told that <<The "temiru" gives the impression that the speaker's will is not very much involved there, or that there is little causal relationship between the first and second sentence. Without it, it would emphasize more that the reason for waking up is because of the dream>>. If I look up "miru", I see that X-te miru means "try to X". Am I missing a sense? How do we go from "try to wake up" to "the speaker's will is not very much involved" or the dream not being the cause of the awakening?
