Last night I dreamt that I was a bird
Lift with the wind, long black wings would unfold.
But when I dared to look down to the ground, to the ground
I felt my bones grow
Heavy and cold, oh oh
Why do I shake so?
I cannot fall.

Last night I dreamt that I was a house
Flames leapt from the stove and licked at the walls.
I screamed from my windows 'Get out, oh get out, I'll explode!'
I am not safe
Pull me from Kansas
Why do they think I look safe and secure?

Last night you dreamt that I was a bird
The whitest feathers and I soared.
I don't want to hurt the faith you have put.
But if you could reserve it 'till at least I have stood.

Last night I dreamt of black current, river of voices
Sink below; it forgives all my choices.
But when I look on to the sea, to the Ocean
I feel my limbs shrink
Into my fins and I think
If I could just swim from
The lights of the shore.

Last night I dreamt I was deep inside the mouth of a monster,
Green paper filled my breast
And I woke to breathe,
Sat up for to free myself
And there you were,
Just standing there
I don't know if I can do this.
There's too many dangers.
You might burn for me,
For last night I dreamt you dreamt
That I was a bird
