I can't imagine all the people that you know
And the places that you go
When the lights are turned down low
And I don't understand all the things you've seen
But I'm slipping in between
You and your big dreams
It's always you
In my big dreams

And you tell me that it's over
Wake up lying in a patch of four leaf clover
And you're restless, and I'm naked
You've gotta get out
You can't stand to see me shaking, no
You let me go
I didn't think so

And you don't want to be here in the future
So you say the present's just your pleasant
Interruption to the past
And you don't want to look much closer
Because you're afraid to find out all this hope
You had sent into the sky by now had... crashed
And it did
Because of me

And then you bring me home
Afraid to find out that you're alone
And I'm sleeping in your living room
But we don't have much room
To live

And you see I, I had these dreams where I learned to play guitar
Maybe cross the country
Become a rock star
And there was hope in me that I could take you there
But damnit, you're so young
Well, I don't think I care
And if I hurt you
Then I'm sorry
Please don't think that this was easy

Then you'd bring me home
Because we both know what it's like to live alone
And I'm dreaming in your living room
But we don't have much room
To live

You can't resist her
She's in your bones
She fills your marrow
And your ride home

You can't avoid her
She's in the air
In between molecules of oxygen and carbon dioxide
Only in Dreams
You see what it means

And Konstantine is walking down the stairs
Doesn't she look good
Standing in her underwear?
And I've been thinking
But I've been thinking
But we've been drinking and it doesn't get me anywhere
Did it, did it ever get us anywhere at all

And Konstantine is walking down the stairs
And all that I could do is touch her long blonde hair
And I've been thinking
What I've been thinking
But we've been drinking and it never got us anywhere

This is because I can spell konfusion with a 'k'
And I can like it
It's to dying in another's arms and why I had to try it
It's to Jimmy Eat World
It's to nights in my car
When the first star you see may not be a star
"I'm not your star"

Only in dreams
See what it means
Reach out your hand
Hold on to hers

Well if this, if this is what it takes
To lie with my mistakes
And live with what I did to you
And all the hell I put you through
I always catch the clock
It's 11:11
Now you want to talk
It's not hard to dream
You'll always be my Konstantine

My Konstantine, oh my Konstantine
They'll never hurt you like I do
No, no they'll never hurt you like, hurt you like I do
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

This is to a girl who got into my head
With all the pretty things she did
Hey, you know
You keep me up in bed
This is to a girl who got into my head
With all these fucked up things I did
Hey, maybe, baby
You could keep me up in bed
My Konstantine
I watch you spin around me like a dream
We played out on a movie screen
And I said
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Well I missed you

Only in dreams
Only in dreams
Only in dreams

And then you bring me home
And we, we go to sleep, but this time not alone, no, no
And you'll, you'll kiss me in your living room
Well I know, I know
You'll miss me in her living room
Because these nights I think maybe
I need you in my living room
We don't have much room
I said does anybody need that room?
When we all need a little more room
To live

My Konstantine

    General CommentMy favorite part of this version is this:

    You can't resist her
    She's in your bones
    She fills your marrow
    And your ride home


    The first three lines are all making the feelings seem extraordinary, then the last line puts it back in perspective of them being so young.
