I dreamt that you were alive, really alive
I dreamt of your eyes, I dreamt of your eyes
They weren't just open, they were engaged
Then somebody said, or maybe I read
In the daytime we're dead, but at night we live

We were inside, sitting inside
Ready to play, there was the stage
And she wasn't brave, and you weren't away
Then somebody said, where was it I read
In the daytime we're dead, but at night we live

We're with our families, we're with our friends
We're singing and smiling, time is a secret
There is no car crash, there is no blood
I can't believe this, but maybe I should
In the daytime we're dead, but at night we live

    General CommentI love this song. :) Great infectious rhythm and lyrics are good too.., about possibly being more alive at night then in the day,or because they are sound asleep during daytime hours?

    General CommentThe song is about Chi Cheng, the bassist for Deftones, Far and Deftones are close friends and have been for many years, this is the singer visiting chi in hospital while he was comatose - "There is no car crash, there is no blood".
