Well there's a dreamer in my dreams
Swinging from the beams
With light shining off the snow

Well there's a singer in my heart
Burning up my charts
With songs about things we all know

Well there's a blister on his brain
That's driving him insane
Cause all good things they gotta go

Well there's a child on the way
It could be any day
But how this life will change him
That we don't know

Well there's a child on the way
Gonna look just like him
One day, he's gonna say
"Ain't you my dad?"

Then he's gonna look down and smile
And after a while, he'll say,
"That's for sure, cause you got my eyes."

Well there's a dreamer in my dreams,
He's hanging from the beams
With a light shining off the snow

There's a blister on his brain
It's driving him insane
And all good things have to go
Alright

There's a dreamer in my dreams
Swinging from the beams
With a light shining off the lake

Well I know I've made mistakes
I'm passing them on
But I hope he gets up before dawn
Alright

(Yeah, that's it)

There's a dreamer in my dreams
Climbing up the back
Of a car they used to call a Cadillac

It's got a brand new set of keys
It's got a new look, it's got a new look
And he's gonna, he's gonna take it all the way

(I'm leaving)

There's a dreamer in my dreams
Swinging from the beams
All jacked up in my garage

He's hanging from a belt
He don't know what he's done
Just don't forget to say goodbye when he's gone

(That's it!)

    General CommentMaybe I take a very negative view of Wilco songs but I read this one to be Tweedy writing about the effect that fatherhood is going to have on his lifestyle and his songwriting. Just as he's starting to get comfortable in his own skin, here comes this child which threatens to shake it all up and rearrange his life.

    As a father of two, I know exactly what that felt like.
