Oh Shannon
I might be dreamin’
The stars fell down on the factory
The cathedrals repeating, the light receding
Bells on another day

Have you ever seen my face
Fast asleep and dreamin’?

Oh Shannon
The lightnin’ fell
There’s an army down by the riverside
But I might be dreamin’
I can see that you don’t believe me
And I might be dreamin’

If I dip into your water
Fall through my reflection
I will shadow myself anyway

Have you ever seen my face
Fast asleep and dreamin’?
And it don’t seem right
That I don’t get no sleep at night
What’s the river gonna know about leavin’?

Oh Shannon
The soldiers are comin’
The guns are drummin’ the night away
Rain, rain go away
Come again some other day
When I got time for believin’

Have you ever seen my face
Fast asleep and dreamin’?
Yeah! What is there left to believe in?!

Oh Shannon
I might be dreamin’
I might be wastin’ my life away
listenin’ to you
Down on under the streetlight
You shudder and beat
The edge of the waterway

And I know if I had time
I might dive in your water
Lie right down in the evening rain
I just want this pain, pain to go away
Come again some other day
When I got time for bleedin’

Have you ever seen my face
Fast asleep and dreamin’?
And it don’t seem right that I don’t get no sleep at night
What’s the river gonna know about leavin’?

Oh Shannon
I might be dreamin’
