Only In Dreams

Album: The Blue Album (1994)
  • You can't resist her
    She's in your bones
    She's in your marrow
    And your ride home
    You can't avoid her
    She's in the air (in the air)
    In between molecules
    Of oxygen and carbon dioxide

    Only in dreams
    We see what it means
    Reach out our hands
    Hold on to hers
    But when we wake
    It's all been erased
    And so it seems
    Only in dreams

    You walk up to her
    Ask her to dance
    She says, "hey baby
    I just might take the chance"
    You say "it's a good thing
    That you float in the air
    That way there's no way
    I will crush your pretty toenails into a thousand pieces"

    Only in dreams
    We see what it means
    Reach out our hands
    Hold on to hers
    But when we wake
    It's all been erased
    And so it seems
    Only in dreams

    Only in dreams
    Only in dreams
    Only in dreams
    Only in dreams
    Only in dreams
