now that i love you so much,
and it’s right there for all to see.
why don’t you let me hold you
and dream of the things that should not be?
haha haha

you’re so damn intelligent; i can’t stand the way it hurts
‘cause i’ll never be worth quite what you’re worth.

i studied the words you wrote down
and picked them apart to check your style,
and as i was doing all this
you never forget to hide your smile.
haha haha

i wonder if my heart will fade or if this is the one
‘cause i don’t think i’ll find a better one.

it all comes crashing down (lalala)
when my secret flies. (lala)
back to loneliness.
why?

[chorus #2]

it all comes…

now that i love you so much,
and it’s right there for all to see.
why don’t you let me hold you,
and dream of the things that should not be?

now that i love so much
and it’s right there for all to see.
why don’t you let me hold you
and dream of the things that should not be?
and dream of the things that should not be?
and dream of the things that should not be?

    this line is so great. it struck me as being so cool the first time i heard it. Rivers is at his best when writing about the girls he can't get!

    I love Rivers song writing style, how somehow it always seems to focus on the fact that he can't get the girl he loves or lost the girl he loved, but he also tends to knock himself a lot when he writes about it. I know that's inevitable, but still.... I never liked this song, though, until I actually read the lyrics. Then I re-listened to it and realized what such a beautiful song it was. I hope they don't leave it out when they make album 5.

    General Commenti think rivers has an infatuation with an older authority figure, and he doesnt want anyone to know about it

    General CommentIn Ayn Rand's book "Atlas Shrugged," Dagny Taggart, pining for her true love John Galt, uses the number of his house as a symbol for his vacancy in her life. The number is, of course, 367. This song similarly paints a portrait of an unrequited love between the narrator (Dagny) and a person viewed as superior (Galt, Rand's symbol of totally fulfilled human achievement). The song's lyrics are too vague or universal to completely draw a parallel, but the words the narrator studies "to check your style" could be Galt's 80 page radio speech, just as "the things that should not be" could refer to the future of the world as controlled by the looters, etc.
