The ashtray on the windowsill
Fills with falling rain
The morning meets my eyes again
The things we never say
When we're wide awake
I hear them echo through the day

Rattle around in my dreams why don’t you
Little bird, my turtledove
You’re walking in my sleep like there is
Something that you need to know
I know you know I know
I know you know I know

The sleeve your elbow went through
The holes you never patch
Your tattered rags in shades of black
Clothes don't make the man
But I love that velvet coat
The ties I’ve fixed around your throat

Rattle around in my dreams why don’t you
Dirty dog, you billy goat
You’re walking in my sleep like there is
Something that you need to know
I know you know I know
I know you know I know

Maybe there's a way
To ease my worried head
Prescription filled or fortune read
But no doctor fortune teller
Could treat me like you do
I go to bed and wait for you

Rattle around in my dreams why don’t you
Whisper things in secret code
You’re walking in my sleep like there is
Something that you need to know
I know you know I know

Every night I close my eyes and see your face
Do I imagine you or is it you that waits
Is this a conversation that’s so strange and sweet
Or does my memory play tricks on me

Rattle around in my dreams why don’t you
Whisper things in secret code
You dirty dog, you little bird
You billy goat, my turtledove
You’re walking in my sleep like there is
Something that you need to know
I know you know I know
I know you know I know
You know I know you know
I know you know I know
