"Daydream" as written by Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn and John Latouche....
My daydream seems as one inside of you
Though it seems hard to reach through this life
Your blue and hopeless life

My daydream screams bitter 'til the end
The love I share -true- selfish to the heart
My heart, my sacred heart

My daydream dream
My daydream
My daydream dream
My daydream

I'm going crazy
I'm going crazy
I don't want feelings
Your feelings

I have gone crazy
Motherfucking crazy
I have gone

    General Commentshe wishes all her daydreams could come true because they're so much more appealing than her reality. and they're about the person she wants, loves, needs, whatever, she's crazy about him

    General CommentYes, D'arcy did a nice job on vocals here, but I still would love to hear Billy sing it (the "Daydream" part of the song)...it just seems right up his alley. A sentimental acoustic-driven piece about loss and pain. This is definitely an amazing song, I just really wish Billy would have sung the whole thing (he wrote it...too bad he gave it to D'arcy to sing).

    Oh, and Ciyaak Boy, don't analyze Billy's drug habbit too deeply. His songs were indeed fueled by his inner pain and loss. Drugs honestly don't make you write better songs (sorry to shatter that completely illogical misconception). Trust me (I have a "friend" who might have tried a time or two)! And it's not as if Billy was tripping 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!! And taking drugs (I'm going to shatter another wildly popular misconception here...I apologize in advance) does NOT make you a "different" person. It might slighty alter your train of thought at the moment, but drugs do nothing more than that (and NO, I am not defending any sort of drug use). Acid does not transport you to some astral plane in the sky, like in the movies. Billy's songs were nothing if not completely authentic and heartfelt. You can't fake the emotion that you'll find in this song, and any other Pumpkins song!!!

    General CommentHere is a list of all the songs (that I know of) where you hear Darcy's voice...

    Bury Me
    Daydream
    Cherub Rock
    Blew Away
    La Dolly Vita
    Jellybelly
    To Forgive
    Cupid De Locke
    Where Boys Fear To Tread
    Thirty Three
    1979
    We Only Come Out At Night
    Beautiful
    Farewell And Goodnight
    Dreaming
    Perfect

    Shame
    Blank Page

    I'm not sure about Bury Me...I heard somewhere that it was actually James, after eating a whole bunch of M&Ms and Twinkies, who was doing the "female" vocals.

    General Commentyou thought you were the only one who'd ever read the perks of being a wallflower?

    are you joking, or do people like you actually exist out of middle school?

    General CommentActually, according to sources, this part-

    "I'm going crazy
    I'm going crazy

    I don't want feelings
    Your feelings

    I have gone crazy
    Motherfuckin' crazy
    I have gone"

    Isn't part of Daydream at all, which makes sense when you notice the space between the two. It's actually a super-short bonus track entitled, fairly obviously, "I'm Going Crazy"

    The whole thing is still awesome, just thought I'd note that particular bit.^_^
