In Dreams

lyrics

Do you want to read? Do you want to walk?
Do you want to fuck? Do you want to talk?
I can give you everything you've ever wanted, love of mine.
Do you want your fill? Do you want your friends?
Do you want your pills? Are you on the mend?
I would get some sleep, but it seems my house was haunted all this time.

Do you want to eat? Do you want to drink?
Can you hear my voice? Can you even think?
I've been here for days and I'm going nowhere 'til I see a sign.

In dreams, you would have stayed forever, happy with me.
Over the waterfall. Tear down the Berlin wall.
Collapse to the floor wearing nothing but a smile,
not get up until we're done.
You would be safe from any physical harm.
Into my open arms. Nothing but false alarms.
Collapse into love. Say you'll stay here for a while.
I knew you were the one.

I look around at routinized and mechanized pedestrians.
What do they do with the money that they make?
I feel inside my pocket while I'm walking to the hospital.
If I drink this bottle, I will never wake.

In dreams, you would have stayed forever, happy with me.
Over the waterfall. Tear down the Berlin wall.
Collapse to the floor wearing nothing but a smile,
not get up until we're done.
You would be safe from any physical harm.
Into my open arms. Nothing but false alarms.
Collapse into love. Say you'll stay here for a while.
I knew you were the one.
