  • Dreams
    That's where I have to go
    To see your beautiful face anymore
    I stare at a picture of you
    And listen to the radio
    Hope
    Hope there's a conversation
    Where we both admit we had it good
    But until then
    It's alienation I know
    That much is understood
    And I realize

    If you ask me how I'm doin'
    I would say I'm doin' just fine
    I would lie and say that you're not on my mind
    But I go out
    And I sit down
    At a table set for two
    And finally I'm forced to face the truth
    No matter what I say
    I'm, not over you

    Damn
    Damn girl you do it well
    And I thought you were innocent
    Took this heart and put it through hell
    And still your magnificent
    I, I'm a boomerang
    Doesn't matter how you throw me
    Turn around
    And I'm back in the game
    Even better than the old me
    But I'm not even close without you

    If you ask me how I'm doin'
    I would say I'm doin' just fine
    I would lie and say that you're not on my mind
    But I go out
    And I sit down
    At a table set for two
    And finally I'm forced to face the truth
    No matter what I say
    I'm, not over you

    And if I had the chance
    To renew
    You know there isn't a thing I wouldn't do
    I could get back on the right track
    But only if you'd be convinced
    So until then

    If you ask me how I'm doin'
    I would say I'm doin' just fine
    I would lie and say that you're not on my mind
    But I go out
    And I sit down
    At a table set for two
    And finally I'm forced to face the truth
    No matter what I say
    I'm, not over you
    Not over you
    Not over you
    Not over you Writer/s: Gavin Degraw, Ryan Tedder
