  • In the dream you were someone different
    You and everyone else all at once
    You were beautiful, you were beautiful
    In the dream you were just like you are

    You loved everyone like a sovereign
    Half magnanimous, half unimpressed
    And I was talkin' too much, and I was tryin' too hard
    In the dream it was just like it is

    Everything was so simple
    Things are and they always will be
    Oh you are the answer to the question that is me
    Yeah in the dream it was just like it is

    We were captive there in a prison
    Where everyone was guilty by mistake
    It was infinite, It was infinite
    In the dream it was just like it is

    And I, I asked, is that good for you
    You said "no probably not
    But everybody needs to get through the night
    And love is all we've got

    Yeah in the dream it was just like it is
    In the dream it was just like it is

    In the dream you were someone different
    You and everyone else all at once
    You were beautiful, you were beautiful
    In the dream you were just like you are Writer/s: DAMIAN KULASH
