In the sky is the moon
This large yellow circle finds her in the mood.
In her eyes I can see it all.
A short plaid skirt, a white short sleeve shirt.
My dreams aren't premonitions,
because I'm dreaming of impossible outcomes.
I've tried to understand but I just don't understand
empty signposts seen through large windows.
Late one fall afternoon after school,
in the cool, cool suburban breeze of Louisville.
It's unaffordable.
It's unavoidable.
It's inevitable.
Our eyes, hearts and words are evidence
My dreams aren't premonitions
Because I'm dreaming of impossible outcomes
I've tried to understand but I just don't understand
Empty signposts seen through large windows

    General Commentwell. to the best of my knowledge, the song's a metroschifter cover. although, it's not really a cover, metroschifter had an album that they wrote, but didn't play. a bunch of bands did songs for them, and the get up kids were one of them.

    General CommentGreat song. It's about not thinking you are good enough for someone. It is an upbeat song about hopelessness. His dreams do not tell the future because he dreams the impossible. Go GUKs, Rock Music!

    General CommentIt says in the liner notes of eudora (which is where I heard the song anyway) that it was a metroschifter song so that's what I'm assuming. It's about dreaming about a girl but knowing it's never going to happen, but not stopping the dream.
