dreams of clay lyrics – dwight yoakam

dreams of clay

i’d been building hopes so long
honey, i must have lost sight of what went wrong
’cause in sorrow’s blinding light today
baby, it looks like my dreams were made of clay

years of yearning spent for you
honey, i know now were the cravings of a fool
i guess your wants just slipped away
and baby, it looks like my dreams were made of clay

[bridge:]
i knew love could toss you down
an’ leave you there to crawl around
but never thought that was a fall we’d make

getting up was nothing new
the kind of thing hearts learn to do
but knowing how doesn’t mean it’s easy to take

so i’ll forget about
plans we had for me and you
and dwell on thoughts lonely lives pursue
praying memories don’t stay
’cause baby, it looks like our dreams were made of clay

so i’ll forget about
plans we had for me and you
and dwell on thoughts lonely lives pursue
praying memories don’t stay
’cause baby, it looks like our dreams were made of clay

yeah baby, it looks like our dreams were made of clay
