Dreams
by Beck

  • Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, ah, oh

    Come on out of your dreams
    And wake up from your rêverie
    The time is here, don't go to sleep
    Streets are running on the brink
    They say that we've got nothing
    But a dollar for a life of sin
    'Cause there's trouble on the way
    Oh, there's trouble on the way
    Oh, get a dog and pony for a judgment day

    Here we are (oh oh oh)
    Running circles, around around around around
    When nothing's right, just close your eyes
    Close your eyes and you're gone

    Dreams (dreams, dreams)
    D-d-d-dreams (oh oh oh)
    She's makin' me high, she's makin' me high
    Dreams (dreams, dreams)
    D-d-d-dreams (oh oh oh)
    She's makin' me high, I wanna get me free

    Nothing gonna get me in my world

    Now can these broken wings free me
    About a light-year from reality
    If you want to fall in a dream
    You could put the weight right onto me

    Here we are (oh oh oh)
    Running circles, around around around around
    When nothing's right, just close your eyes
    Close your eyes and you're gone

    Dreams (dreams, dreams)
    D-d-d-dreams (oh oh oh)
    She's makin' me high, she's makin' me high
    Dreams (dreams, dreams)
    D-d-d-dreams (oh oh oh)
    She's makin' me high, I wanna get me free

    Nothing gonna get me in my world
    Nothing gonna get me in my world

    Ahh, stop dragging down my dreams, dreams, yeah
    Ahh, stop dragging down my dreams, dreams, dreams
    Ahh

    Dreams (dreams, dreams)
    D-d-d-dreams (oh oh oh)
    She's makin' me high, she's makin' me high
    Dreams (dreams, dreams)
    D-d-d-dreams (oh oh oh)
    She's makin' me high
    I wanna get me free

    Nothing gonna get me in my world

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, ah, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, ah, oh Writer/s: GREGORY KURSTIN, ANDREW WYATT, BECK HANSEN
