  • Lyrics
  • Oh here's a story bout a boy named J.
    Nothing he did would ever get in my way
    But there's still a long, long way to go
    I've only ever seen his face on film,
    I've only ever heard the lines he'd say
    But still they won't, get in my way

    chorus:
    I'm always told to be the dreamer kind
    Wake up one morning and your dreams are life
    Never let them bring me down
    Never let them tear me down
    I always thought that I would follow you
    Every place and everything you do
    But I'm happy to be by myself
    I don't need no-one else

    He's never ever seen my face before
    I'm trying hard cos this I can't ignore
    But there's still a long, long way to go

    chorus

    All my dreams are built around your face and this place
    All the times I'm staring at the sun, you're the one
    All my dreams are built around your face and this place
    All the times I'm staring at the sun, you're the one

    chorus (2x)
