When the train comes to stop
Oh, I don't wanna move
And blunder back into it all

When the plane come to land
I wanna stay inside
And rise up to the clouds again

Cause dealing with the real world
Is sometimes not too fun
When baby says she loves you
Whilst holding up a gun

Thank goodness
I've got imaginary creatures
Laying on the advice
By my side
By my side

When the film credits roll
I stay right till the end
Then wander the streets with my eyes ablaze

All I really want to do
Is go straight back and watch it again
Playing a different person every time

Oh, cause living in the real world
Can sometimes get so strange
When you fall in love with statues
And cockateels in a cage

Well, it seems I've got imaginary lovers
They say they're protecting the space
By my side
By my side

    General Commentit's way too bad that the new album got such bad reviews... I didn't like it at first but it has really grown on me. I think it's just different...

    This song is one of my favorites... I think it's pretty straightforward... about a dreamer maybe. I always imagine his "imaginary lovers" as guardian angels or something like that, protecting the space by his side. very sweet stuff, and I LOVE the music, strange indian ripoff or not.

    General CommentI like this, particularly the start, but it is in places very like We're Here.
