she sees blue and red on the crown she wears upon her head.
i love you he said, her husband she recently wed.
she dreams this while she’s wide awake.
counting her diamond rings,
she has one for every day of the week.
birds are dancing while she sings
oh her dream life, it is so unique,
and i hope this stops for her own sake.
and if you could make this happen,
i would not be suprised.
make life what i’m dreaming, all in just one night.
then why oh why can’t i?
golden yellow skies, an image of her in my eye.
growing trees and firefly’s,
and answers to the question “why?”
people twice my size, and all the times for second tries.
we heard you on the radio, oh it feels so good just to let go.
if you could make the oceans, and live above the skies,
wake the sun for morning and light the moon at night.
In this night, I need to call you but all the lines are blown.
If only you knew, how empty I feel.
But maybe then you’re lonely too,
and it’s tearing through you like a punctured wound.
Maybe no one knows what to do.
When we know we’re alone in a temporary home.
Maybe we’ll realize that’s a blessing in disguise.
A blessing in disguise.
And I tell myself what we’re living for.
And say: rejoice, evermore.
‘Til one of us dies.
If I was a sunset, I’d want to lay on your bed,
And watch the Hollywood lights flicker as it started to dim.
If I was a movie, you know I’d feel pretty good.
I’d watch you dancing all night in the dark where I stood.
She’s got the brown eyes, yeah, and they’re pretty as hell
And they’ll burn through your shirt if you’re holding her still
She’s got a lighter, and a lit cigarette
And if you’re making her smile, that’s just as high as you can get
I’m still out on Sunset in a taxicab
I’m still at the movies, and I’m holding your hand
Still at an overpass view looking out at the lights
Still on an airplane, and I’m starting to cry
If I was the evening, you know I’d send you a breeze
I’d let it whisper in your ear, kiss you and sing you to sleep
If I wasn’t so screwed up, maybe all the words might have come
