dream time lyrics – jam

streets i ran
this whole town –
backstreets and all
i wanted to leave there.
but no matter how fast i ran, my feet were glued, i just couldn’t move there.
i saw the hate and lots of people
i heard my name called above the noise
i tried to speak but my tongue was tied
bumped into emptiness and started to cry

oh no
i saw the lights and the pretty girls
and i thought to myself what a pretty world,
but there’s something else here that puts me off.
and i’m so scared dear, my love comes in frozen packs,
bought in a supermarket.

streets i ran, through wind and rain,
around this place amongst streaming sunshine.
scared i was, sweating now.
feeling of doom, my bowels turned to water.

i felt hot breath whisper in my ear,
i looked for somewhere to hide but everywhere’s closed.
i shut my eyes pretend not to be here,
this feeling’s much to real to ever disappear

oh no.
i saw the lights and the pretty girls
and i thought to myself what a pretty world,

but there’s something else here that puts me off.
and i’m so scared dear, their hate comes in frozen packs,
bought in a supermarket.

and i’m so scared dear –
my love comes in frozen packs
