Dreams So Real

  • When I get to the bottom of it I sink
    Seems like nothing I said
    Ever meant anything
    But a headline over my head
    Thought I made a stand
    Only made a scene
    There's no feast for the underfed
    All the unknown, dying or dead
    Keep showing up in my dreams
    They stand at the end of my bed
    Have I ever really helped anybody but myself,
    To believe in the power of songs
    To believe in the power of girls
    Though the point we're making is gone
    Played stripped down to my bone

    I'll shut up and carry on
    The scream becomes a yawn
    I'll shut up and carry on
    The scream becomes a yawn
    I'll shut up and carry on
    The scream becomes a yawn
    I'll shut up and carry on
    The scream becomes a yawn
    I'll shut up and carry on
    The scream becomes a yawn
    I'll shut up and carry on
    The scream becomes a yawn

    Our parents, daughters, and sons
    Believed in the power of songs
    What if those days are gone
    My memory is strong
    Anyone not dying is dead
    And baby it won't be long
    So shut up and carry on
    The scream becomes a yawn

    I'll shut up and carry on
    The scream becomes a yawn
    I'll shut up and carry on
    The scream becomes a yawn
    I'll shut up and carry on
    The scream becomes a yawn
    I'll shut up and carry on
    The scream becomes a yawn

    Baby wherever you are, baby whatever you do
    Faster than you think, time staggers on Writer/s: Emily Haines, James Shaw
