Each day I pray
That you won’t go away
Like other ones
(That I won’t mention)

I won’t get up
I won’t get out of bed
I’ll stay all day
(And all tomorrow)

There are no parties
There is no communion
Between people
(When they are sleeping)

But when we sleep
We dream of the same thing
Do you believe us?
(They don’t believe us)

The ending of,
The ending of today
Is today
(And then tomorrow)

Don’t wake them up
To fill an empty cup
Just let them sleep
(In sleep they’re dreaming)

That all we are
All we are is
The dust of stars
The dust of stars
And a million molecules of things
We will never know

    General CommentAgain, Mary Timony is TOO TALENTED FOR MAINSTREAM!! The people just aren't ready for her! They can stick to their Fergie or Pink or whatever the fuck they listen to! Too bad because these lyrics never cease to amaze. If you look closely, you'll find the meaning of life in this song...Yes, the MEANING OF LIFE!!! How many other songwriters can say they got it all figured out? Keep on rocking, M.T.!!
