Well I was sitting in a field of pine trees
Coaxing the words from the earth and the dirt and
I sought a muse but the words just wouldn't come

It's been a while since I saw you at New Year,
Holding your breath, your eyes upon the second hand
The way you looked is still vivid to me

You're something out of a dream
Messin' with my head
And I've been looking for you
Are you hiding?
'Cause I like the way you're calling to me,
Your spell upon me
You're something out of a dream
And I like it, though I fight it

It took a while for the medicine to sink in,
Blow out the fog and remove all the cobwebs
Now I'm clear; I can hear myself think straight

I'm on the road with my clothes in a rucksack,
Over my shoulder, following the whispers
People ask me where I'm going in such haste

And I say, "My girl's a switchblade,
A bright light on a cityscape.
Wherever she goes, I'm going to chase."

You're something out of a dream
Messin' with my head
And I've been looking for you
Are you hiding?
'Cause I like the way you're calling to me,
Your spell upon me
You're something out of a dream
And I like it, though I fight it, (ooh)

You're something out of a dream
You're something out of a dream

    General CommentGreat lyrics but I can't really find the meaning of this.I think everyone wants to live in a dream of theirs and packs up and goes in the world. I don't know if it's the same with eloping because it presumably this person is kind of single and would like to be in a elope with somebody along the road...

    My InterpretationThere was a time when he had nothing going on and he needed a muse. Then one New Year's eve, he meets her, his muse, Celeste.

    Now for some reason or another, they never really kept in touch. Maybe he just saw her and never really talked to her. Maybe they just had a moment and didn't get to trade numbers. Bottomline is, she was gone.

    And now he's always looking out to find her, but it feels so stupid. He's fighting it because it's silly. It was just one night, it happened quite a while ago, he doesn't even know what her name is (he just called her Celeste). But she's just impossible to forget.

    She's a muse. She's something out of a dream. Something you eternally chase.


    Okay, I'm really starting to like this band. Haha! :) Can relate.
