tread lightly lyrics – kirsty maccoll

another time, another day
another baby on the way
a dreamboy for your nightmare nights
who never shouts and never fights

happy with your 2.2
w hat else is there for you to do
but turn and wet the baby’s head
and pray he will be happier than you or me
that’s how it’s meant to be

it’s called a lifetime, at first you never notice
then the years go flying by and i say

tread lightly in your dreams
they might come true for you tomorrow

say sorry to the boys and girls
you’re sorry for this bl**dy world
sorry for the sick and old
and sorry for the lies you told

sorry for the things i did
the thighs we should have left unsaid
and walked away instead of
rubbing salt on all those open sores and wounds
we should have left to heal

i never knew just what to feel or to expect
i tried to stretch my mind but i’d just get my body wrecked

and now i tread lightly in my dreams
they might come true tomorrow
and i don’t sleep at night in case
i don’t wake up tomorrow

i curse the day i met you
but i won’t forget you, not in my lifetime

another time, another day
you’d never give your heart away
you’d never think and never cry
you’d look the devil in the eye
and tell him to be gone, bye, bye

he’ll never get you in this lifetime
he’d love to touch you but his hands are tied

so just tread lightly in your dreams
they might come true for you tomorrow
tread lightly in your dreams
they might come true for you tomorrow
they might come true for you tomorrow
they might come true tomorrow

tread lightly in your dreams
they might come true for you tomorrow

tomorrow
tomorrow
tomorrow
