Dream lover, I know
Someone's idea of fun
You and me, thoughts on city
Lovers on the run
Lovers on the run

Haunted starlight gets in your eyes
Grabs hold of us and turns us around
All the signs say you're in for a surprise
All the signs are saying this way to town
All the signs are saying this way

You're sick in bed
You're sick in the head
You'd love a dog to play dead
You'd love a dog to play dead
I think I used to be more fun
Ah shit, here comes the sun
Oh shit, here comes the sun
Look, here comes that sun
And now, here comes that sun
And lovers on the run
And lovers on the run
And lovers on the run
Dream lover, I know
Dream lover, I know

    General CommentSounds like a whimsical song about youthful dreaming, but also with some typical destroyer lines poking fun at the naivety of it all ('sick in the head', 'you'd love a dog to play dead')? Lyrics remind me of song kaput...but mood seems pretty different...

    My Interpretationi think this song is about having a girlfriend who is so hot, you think maybe you are hallucinating and she doesnt even exist!
