dream song lyrics – benjamin gibbard

dream song

he’s been waking all through the night
and pacing ’round in the moonlight
’cause these same dreams won’t let him be
their cameras photograph everything
that he’s been burying down beneath
and show him what he don’t wanna see

he counts the hours creeping by
his thoughts racing, eyes stuck open wide
tossing and turning through the night every night

he has this one where he’s being pursued
by every woman he ever knew
and at first grasp he wakes in gasps
he watches her laying there sound asleep
and wonders who’s chasing her through her dreams
and when they do if it scares her too

he counts the hours creeping by
his thoughts racing, eyes stuck open wide
tossing and turning through the night every night
and oh how he needs to get some sleep
but who waits down there so deep
leaves him shaking at the knees

oh

he counts the hours creeping by
his thoughts racing, eyes stuck open wide
tossing and turning through the night every night
and oh how he needs to get some sleep
but who waits down there so deep
leaves him shaking at the knees
