The thing about dreams
Is that everything seems
Like you're riding a wave
That's been forming all day in your mind

The thing about time
Is all in your mind
Days turn to weeks turn to years
Turn to infinite signs
What you're leaving behind

And to hell with the rest
You gave them your best
You talked through your teeth
And the black cigarettes in your head

I always believed you were more than impossible
More than you seem and hardly responsible
For my life
From my eyes
Let's stay the night
We'll leave with the sunlight

The thing about me
Is I wanted to be
More than just friends
And hardly acquaintances
I, I wanna know why

Turn in your sleep
The secrets you keep
The things that you bury
So deeply, discretely inside
My, oh my

And to hell with the words
Or haven't you heard
Nobody says what they mean
'Til the second or third whiskey rye

I always believed you were more than impossible
More than you seem and hardly responsible
For my life
From my eyes
Let's stay the night
We'll leave with the sunlight

The thing about love
It's never enough
Circumstance changes
And life's always calling your bluff
Enough is enough

And when you sleep, you're alone
When you dream you're just one
Of a million small pieces
My darling, I see you, I'm one

I always believed we were more than impossible
You're more than you seem and partly responsible
For my life
From my eyes
And now I've said too much, I'm not giving up
I can carry the weight of this overflow cup
I'll just close my eyes like you're close to the touch
And I'll dream
Dream

You're not what you seem
You're not what you seem
