you cant hear her
never before
you did what no one else can

just never follow up
when im away
because i hurt you
youd hurt me too

you were a dream
this is the longest time ive been with someone
theres no explaining and no escaping

you are for real
and nothing will ever come between us
no need to look too deep
ill just never go to sleep

i felt your body
as i remember
put me to shame
when i was blue

i put you down
inside myself
you managed to do it
you always do

you were a dream
this is the longest time ive been with someone
theres no explaining and no escaping

you are for real
and nothing will ever come between us
no need to look too deep
ill just never go to sleep

but you know
you missed the point of dreaming
when you said
you needed more and more
but ended up with less

this time i have you with me
i pulled you out
when i got up

i paint your pretty face
and i will make this one real

you were a dream
this is the longest time ive been with someone
theres no explaining and no escaping

you are for real
and nothing will ever come between us
no need to look too deep
ill just never go to sleep

    General CommentI love this song. It's the first one that I've heard by the Ataris. I'm not exactly sure what "No need to look too deep I'll just never go to sleep" is supposed to mean. If anyone can figure it out lemme know. I'm probably just overlooking the whole meaning of the song...

    General CommentThis is a good song and all, but the only bad part about it is that they didn't even write it. i just hope this isn't a sign of things to come

    whats so bad about doing a cover song? Theyve done it before (boxcar, on with the show, i remember you, just like heaven). also, this version is much better than the original, which is done by ALL.

    General Commentthe beginning goes " You came clearer than ever before
    You did what no one else can Just never follow up when I'm awake Because I'd hurt you. You'd hurt me too. "
