I'm distilling everything she said into a potion
But it's always going to my head in slow motion
oh nightmare girl

Things are getting weirder
At the speed of light
Nightmare girl
All this fever dreaming kills my appetite
For love and restless nights

Once she wanted me to exercise her self-possession
And then failing that she wanted lives
And vivisection
Oh nightmare girl

Things are getting weirder
At the speed of light
Nightmare girl
All this fever dreaming kills my appetite
For love and restless nights

I'm on a train to Brooklyn
I'm on the IRT
I've gotta think I'm saving the day
I get a call in the night
I get a call at three
I gotta go and make it OK

Cause things are getting weirder at the Speed of light
Nightmare girl
All this fever dreaming kills my appetite
Nightmare girl

Things are getting weirder
Things are getting weirder
Things are getting weirder

    General CommentI absolutely LOVE this song! This is one of the songs that actually made me pay attention to Aimee Mann just on the instrumentals alone! The lyrics as well stir up vivid imagery!
