i've always dreamt
of something beautiful
between conception and
the funeral and now
i'll wait if that's where i'll find it
i spent a lot on something trivial
i couldn't tell you
what was meaningful till now
i got a taste of the feeling
there aint no use in being practical
the motors running
and the tank is full
let's get on the road
before the morning comes
come with me for a day
and the distance
will drive the pain away
of that i'm sure
there isn't anything else
you need to take
nothing material in any case
so now
we'll make a plan
when we get there
sometimes there's promises
you have to break
so only make the ones
you have to make
and i know how to handle
my expectations
you're nervous
and you want to hesitate
afraid the whole thing
might be a mistake so now
just let your heart do the thinking
i've never been so sure
about anything in my life
i've never felt this way
about anything
someday i'm gonna run away
with you
and if it's only for a day or two
then
i'll wait if that's where i'll find it
there isn't anything i'd rather do
then leave the world behind (lyric book says "then" - should it be "than"?)
and be with you so now
i'll wait if that's where
i've always dreamt of something
beautiful
between conception
and the funeral
and i'll wait
i spent a lot on something trivial
i couldn't tell you
what was meaningful

    General CommentThis is an amzing song from an amazing album. The song just talks about what he one can do between birth and death. That you can't let anything stop you from what your heart desires.
